The Wage Gap War

Jun 7, 2012

This week, a highly-politicized bill titled the “Paycheck Fairness Act”, died in the U.S. Senate.   The bill was aimed at the so-called “wage gap”, between men and women.   It would have given workers greater legal rights, if they found evidence of pay disparities between male and female employees.   Republicans voted against the measure, saying it would have encouraged a flood of workplace lawsuits, while Democrats called the bill an important tool aimed at closing the divide between men’s and women’s paychecks.   We'll look at that, also what might cause this gap?
