Continuing to paint herself as a champion for women’s causes, twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton approved of a lawsuit against the Trump administration, which challenges its rollback of wage reporting rules. The reports would indicate the wage, race, gender and ethnicity of the employee.

Clinton expressed her approval of the lawsuit in a single-word tweet, writing only, “Good,” and including a tweet from Democracy Forward, an organization that boasts of being a check on the executive branch which stands ready to “fight back” to ensure transgressions don’t go unchallenged.

“With a team of experienced litigators, researchers, and policy experts, Democracy Forward scrutinizes Executive Branch activity across policy areas, challenges unlawful actions through litigation, and educates the public about improper government activity,” the group states on its website.

The Democracy Forward tweet read: “NEW: We just sued the Trump Administration on behalf of [National Women’s Law Center] & [Labor Council for Latin American Advancement] for illegally blocking critical equal pay protections that help close the wage gap. [Donald Trump]: You don’t get to treat—or pay—women differently than men. See you in court.”

The rule they are fighting for is an Obama-era requirement. Large companies were to report to the government how they pay employees, classifying the data by race and gender.

According to the Washington Post, despite the rollback, employees are using websites like Glassdoor or Payscale to compare their salary data anyway, while shareholders have asked companies to release their gender pay gap statistics. State and local governments are also passing pay equity laws, some include reporting requirements or asking companies to certify their equal pay activities.

“Our culture is moving toward greater pay transparency, and I don’t think you can unwind that clock,” said Fatima Goss Graves, chief executive of the National Women’s Law Center. She said the rollback of the rule won’t stop the private sector’s push for pay transparency or the states from filling any voids.

Still, in an announcement for the lawsuit touted by Democracy Forward says the Obama rule is necessary to “root out discrimination and close the wage gap.” The organization stated that absent the rule, “roughly 60,886 employers—who collectively employ 63 million workers—are empowered to continue shielding race and gender pay gaps from scrutiny.”

The suit was filed against the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and government officials, and seeks to reinstate the requirement.

“Despite President Trump’s claim that women will ‘make the same if you do as good a job’ as men, U.S. women currently are paid $0.80 for every dollar their white male counterparts make,” the announcement reads. “For women of color, this gap is even bigger, with Latina and African-American women making $0.54 and $0.63 on the dollar, respectively, compared to white, non-Hispanic men.”

National Women’s Law Center, Labor Council for Latin American Advancement v. OMB

Challenging the Trump Administration’s Illegal Rollback of Equal Pay Protections

We’re representing the National Women’s Law Center (NWLC) and the Labor Council for Latin American Advancement in a suit against the Trump Administration for illegally rolling back critical pay transparency requirements intended to root out discrimination and close the wage gap. Without the requirements, roughly 60,886 employers —who collectively employ 63 million workers—are empowered to continue shielding race and gender pay gaps from scrutiny.

After six years of analysis, the EEOC concluded that collecting employee pay data was necessary to enforce the nation’s civil rights laws. The Trump Administration abruptly reversed the prior approval of this data collection, claiming it lacked utility. We filed suit against the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), and government officials, seeking to reinstate the requirement that companies with 100 or more employees report how much they pay their workers by race, gender, and ethnicity.

Despite President Trump’s claim that women will “make the same if you do as good a job” as men, U.S. women currently are paid $0.80 for every dollar their white male counterparts make. For women of color this gap is even bigger, with Latina and African-American women making $0.54 and $0.63 on the dollar, respectively, compared to white, non-Hispanic men.
