In The Region:

The chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee is urging Ohio women to go to the polls this November to vote for Democratic candidates. Debbie Wasserman Schultz says Republicans stand in the way of important legislation, including a bill that would mandate women get paid equal to men for an equal work.

“They refuse to cast a vote or change policy to make that possible for women, whether it’s opposing the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act or the Paycheck Fairness Act, refusing to raise the minimum wage when women who work disproportionately earn the minimum wage.” 

The Ohio Republican Party’s Chris Schrimpf says the “Paycheck Fairness Act” is a desperate political ploy. He says, if the Democrats were serious about it, they wouldn’t have Ed FitzGerald – who pays men $12 an hour more than he does women and employs twice as many men as he does women, at the top of their ticket.
