Former Dane County Executive Kathleen Falk (D)
Gov. Scott Walker's alleged reason for repealing Wisconsin's Equal Pay Enforcement Act was that "In the past, lawyers could clog up the legal system." But, in a letter to Walker, former Dane County executive Kathleen Falk, who is running for governor in the upcoming recall election, and Democratic state Reps. Christine Sinicki and Chris Taylor challenge that claim:
Since the Equal Pay Enforcement Act was signed into law in 2009, we reasonably assume you are claiming there has been an exponential rise in state lawsuits regarding pay discrimination claims filed by women in Wisconsin.
