It's common knowledge that Women working full-time in the U.S. earn an average of 77 cents for every dollar men earn (U.S. Census Bureau).

It's not right and simply unfair.

However, movement on this issue has stagnated.

Even in Congress, the "Paycheck Fairness Act" was blocked yet again.

What does this act say?

"The Paycheck Fairness Act would ban employers from retaliating against employees who share salary information with each other, impose harsher penalties for pay discrimination and require employers to be able to show that wage gaps between men and women are based on factors other than gender."

Senate Republicans state that they oppose the bill because they believe it would discourage employers from hiring women, out of a fear of lawsuits.

Really?

Women deserve the same pay for the same job. Period.

What can we do to solve this problem? Post your ideas and solutions below.
