WASHINGTON, D.C.—Today, Bryan Steil helped introduce the WAGE Equity Act along with Rep. Elise Stefanik (NY-21). The WAGE Equity Actgives employees flexibility while negotiating salary, time-off, and other work arrangements.

“Everyone should have the opportunity to achieve the American dream. Giving workers more flexibility and additional negotiation tools benefits their overall compensation. This empowers women in the workforce. Rather than punishing job creators, our proposal allows workers to negotiate better compensation.”

Steil also released a statement after voting against H.R. 7, the Paycheck Fairness Act:

“This bill adds regulations and does not achieve its goal. H.R. 7 makes it easier for lawyers to go after job creators. It also burdens job creators with federal mandates, helps trial lawyers, and hurts job growth.”
