Daughter of WA Representative steals show during debate over wage transparency bill

February 29, 2016 | Economic Opportunity Institute

rachel-senn-screencapWashington State Representative Tana Senn’s 10-year-old daughter, Rachel, stole the show at a recent hearing when she urged the Senate Commerce & Labor Committee to pass her mother’s pay transparency bill:

“This bill doesn’t say bosses must share everyone’s pay with everyone else, it’s just giving women the opportunity to ask if they are being paid less,” Rachel Senn said. “When I grow up, I don’t want to live in a world where women are paid less, and I really don’t want to live in a world where women don’t know if they are paid less, and they can get fired for exercising their first-amendment right of free speech.”

You tell ’em, Rachel! (Watch Rachel and Rep. Senn here on TVW at the 14:40 mark.)
