Happy 50th Birthday - Equal Pay Act
Today marks the 50th Anniversary of JFK’s signing the Equal Pay Act of 1963. Yet 50 years later, women still make 77 cents for every dollar a man makes, and African-American and Hispanic women earn 64 and 54 cents, respectively.
As President Obama stated this morning, “This is the 21st century. It’s time to close that gap.” We agree with the President that there is still more to be done -- like passing the Paycheck Fairness Act. Learn more and sign the MomsRising Equal Pay Act petition here.
