Macy’s Under Fire for Blocking Women’s Equal Pay Act in Texas

[T]oday, anti-sexism group UltraViolet delivered a petition signed by over 80,000 people urging the company to “publicly pledge to never lobby against equal pay legislation again and apologize for their past efforts.” According to UltraViolet cofounder Shaunna Thomas other retailers (like Kroger, for instance) sent letters to Perry urging him to veto the bill; however, the group has decided to target Macy’s “because it was the biggest retailer to lobby against it.”
