Less Pay For The Same Work May Be Gender Discrimination

Unequal pay for equal work may be a form of discrimination. If a wage gap exists between men and women doing the same job, the resulting unequal pay may be a form of gender discrimination. In 1963, then-President, John F. Kennedy signed the Equal Pay Act into law, prohibiting "discrimination on account of sex in the payment of wages by employers engaged in commerce or in the production of goods for commerce."

Paycheck Fairness Act

In 1963, when the Equal Pay Act was signed, women made less than 60 cents for every dollar a male worker made. Despite efforts to address the issue, pay disparity among men and women has remained a problem. Though the data shows that some progress has been made, it also shows there is still a ways left to go. According to data released by the U.S. Census Bureau, women on average earned 77 cents for every dollar their full-time male counterparts made in 2009.
