Democratic congressional candidate Mikie Sherill slammed Assemblyman Jay Webber, one of the Republicans running for Congress in New Jersey’s 11th district, for being one of two Republicans to vote against the Equal Pay Act today.
“In 2018 it is hard to believe that any legislator would vote against ensuring women get equal pay for equal work,” said Sherrill. “I am deeply disappointed that Assemblyman Jay Webber chose to vote, yet again, against legislation that would give the women of New Jersey a well-deserved raise. As one of just two members to vote against this bill, he is out of step with the people of New Jersey and not the type of leader we want in Trenton or deserve in Washington.“
Sherill praised the legislation passed 74-2 by the Assembly, saying that lawmakers voted to enhance New Jersey’s economy by guaranteeing pay equity for women.
