A new article just published in Fast Company asks, why hasn’t the Senate passed the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act yetIt’s unconscionable: Women have been fighting for this bill for over ten years, and the bill has enough votes to pass—yet Senate leadership continues to delay.

Meanwhile, the need for this bill has only become more urgent as we face a labor shortage, childcare crisis, formula shortage, and the fall-out from the overturning of Roe V. Wade. And just yesterday, Congress announced a reconciliation bill that lacks crucial social support for families like paid leave and childcare funding, once again sending the message that women aren’t a priority. 

By passing the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act, the Senate can deliver a win for maternal health and economic justice while providing a much-needed boost to our economy by keeping women attached to the workforce. There are no excuses. As we told Fast Company, moms multitask every day—the Senate can too.  

Our lawmakers need to hear the message from constituents like you that women and parents won’t stand for being sidelined anymore. Thank you for joining us in taking action today by telling your Senators to pass the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act NOW.
