TELL IT TO FOX

Posted: Updated:

Marking 50 years since President John F. Kennedy signed the Equal Pay Act into law, President Obama today calling for more action in bridging the gender pay gap. Signed in 1963, the bill was a landmark measure requiring employers to give women and men equal pay for equal work, but today, women continue to be paid less than men

President Obama says, "Our journey to equality is not complete until our wives, our mothers, our daughters can earn a living equal to their efforts. The day that the bill was signed into law women earned 59 cents for every dollar a man earned on average, today its about 77 cents."

The President is now pushing for congress to pass the Paycheck Fairness Act and make wage differences more transparent.

Unfortunately, women still earn an average of 77 cents for every dollar earned by a man. For African-American and Hispanic women, it's even lower: 64 and 54 cents, respectively.
    

And that brings us to this week's TELL IT TO FOX question!

According to the National Partnership for Women and Families, women in the U.S. earn over $10,000 less than their male counterparts each year.  Do you think women will ever be treated equally in corporate America, or will this forever be an ongoing battle for American women?    

Let us know what you think! TELL IT TO FOX by commenting on this week's question, which will be posted on the top of our FOX 5 Facebook page, and we'll feature your responses on Thursday night's show.
