Equal Pay For Women - The Gender Gap

Peggy Pico, KPBS, April 8, 2013

Equal pay for an equal job still appears to be out of reach for many women in this country. The federal Equal Pay Act was signed in 1963 when women made 59 cents to every dollar a man made. It was set up to prevent wage discrimination between men and women who are equally skilled and doing the same job. Today, some 50 years later, a woman makes 77 cents for every dollar a man makes.
