This is the third time the bill has failed, following defeats in 2010 and 2012.
The Paycheck Fairness Act would require employers to disclose payment and demographic information and prevent them from punishing workers who discuss their salaries. It would also allow civil pay discrimination lawsuits to be filed against employers.

Amy died on Monday at Tucson Medical Center. A blood infection brought on by ongoing dialysis had weakened her heart to the point that she required surgery.
She was 40.
Less than 24 hours later, Derrick committed suicide in the home the couple shared.
He was 39.
Crying over this. Actually crying. I didn’t know them or anything, but their story is just so damn sad. Maybe not their story, but definitely how it ended. A couple like this deserves to grow old together.
