Learn more about Equal Pay
In 2014 the U.S. Senate blocked the Paycheck Fairness Act which would make it illegal for employers to pay unequal wages to men and women who perform the same work. The goals of the act were to make wages more transparent, require employers to prove that wage discrepancies are tied to legitimate business qualifications and not gender and prohibiting companies from taking retaliatory action against employees who raise concerns about gender-based wage discrimination. Opponents argue that studies which show pay gaps don’t take into account women who take jobs that are more family-friendly in terms of benefits rather than wages and that women are more likely to take breaks in employment to care for children or parents. Proponents point to studies including a 2008 census bureau report that stated that women's median annual earnings were 77.5% of men's earnings. See recent equal pay news

As long as women adjust their professional lives to their family needs, they'll never be doing the same job. I know men who work 7am to 11pm & have wives take care of the kids. Men are often more willing to travel & sacrifice for their jobs.... 2 years ago from a Constitution in Fort Myers, FL
This is a stupid question. What do we mean by the same job? should a male teacher who just started be paid the same amount as a female teacher with thirty years experience? Of course not, the longer you work the more you get paid to keep you around.... 2 years ago from a Constitution in Ozark, MO
Yes, they should earn the same unless they can't perform the job as adequately. Example: Most women cannot carry someone over their shoulder out of a burning building, like a man can. (Firemen). In this instance, I not only don't think she... 2 years ago from a Constitution in Mesa, AZ
If they do it with the same skill and competency then a person of any race, creed or gender gets equal pay in my vision. This question was framed in an obvious and low brow way to shape the issue as gender based only. 2 years ago from a Constitution in New York, NY
No, men can accomplish more than women. 2 years ago from a Constitution in Agency, MO
The woman was given to child bearing. The particular role of the so-called, 'housewife' has also taken a dive down the toilet. This is where another issue lies.
