PAY DISCRIMINATION REMAINS A MAJOR WORKPLACE ISSUE

President Obama and other officials at the White House gave their support to the Paycheck Fairness Act. The Act will require businesses to inform the government about the payment of their employees as it relates to their gender, race, and national origin. This Act is an amendment to the 1964 Civil Rights Act and will aid the government in their efforts to end pay discrimination. The President stated that employment discrimination is harmful to American families, as well as the economy.

Currently, women only make 77 cents for every dollar earned by men. This difference is significantly greater for women of color. The Justice Department has pledged to increase their efforts of enforcement in order to help close the wage gap. A pilot program has been launched to organize the investigation and litigation charges against the state and federal employers that violate the Paycheck Fairness Act.
