Card check isn’t the only item on the labor unions’ wish list. The Washington Times reports that the House may take up the Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act and the Paycheck Fairness Act, both parts of the labor agenda. The first bill would overturn a 2007 Supreme Court decision that required people who were suing for employment discrimination to follow the statute of limitations. The second bill mandates that businesses justify pay differentials between men and women, stopping just short of the comparable worth idea that if predominantly male truckdrivers are paid differently than predominantly female nurses, the difference must be due to discrimination.
I discuss both pieces of legislation and their importance to the labor unions in the December 2008 issue of Labor Watch (pdf).
