Department of Labor Advocating for Legislation Via Social Media

The Department of Labor advises the Secretary of Labor, Hilda Solis, will be conducting a live webinar on September 21, 2010 to discuss “the impact of unequal pay on families and how you can ensure that you receive equal pay for equal work.”  The stated purpose of the webinar is to include discussion and advocate for the passing of the Paycheck Fairness Act, which is currently pending in Congress.  Joining Secretary Solis will be Lily Ledbetter, the namesake of the Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, which was the first bill signed into law by President Obama.

As an aside, Secretary Solis has also created an official DOL Blog which, at least at the moment, seems to chronicle her adventures in Mexico.
