ABSTRACT
The article reports that U.S. Edward Kennedy hopes to move his Fair Pay Restoration Act on top of the U.S. Senate agenda. Kennedy's bill would overturn a recent Supreme Court decision and allow workers to sue a company within 180 days of any paycheck that has allegedly been reduced because of bias. It is too early to tell whether Senate Republicans will filibuster the bill, as they did last year with a measure that would make it easier for workers to organize a union. On July 31, 2007, the House of Representatives passed a bill similar to Kennedy's.
