Iceland to make equal pay the law for men and women

It is held in April to symbolize how far into the year women must work to earn what men earned in the previous year.

It's a fight continuing more than a half century after President Kennedy signed the Equal Pay Act in 1963.

The networking and career advancement site Levo found about a year ago that although 83 percent of millennial women saw negotiation as crucial, only 41 percent pushed for better salaries or benefits. In fact, comparing it to the current top priority of the GOP-tax cuts for the wealthy-equal pay would put twice as much income back into our economy as their current proposed tax cuts.

Part of the reason for the pay gap may be a concentration of women in lower paying jobs or women working fewer hours, but experts also point to discrimination and bias as contributing factors.

Democratic Rep. Derek Slap of West Hartford says the gender wage gap on average costs CT women more than $10,000.

"It's outrageous that we're still debating equal pay for equal work".

PlayStation 4-Exclusive Spider-Man Game To Release in 2017
It looks like Marvel's doing everything that it can to make sure that Spider-Man: Homecoming stays true to its Comicbook roots. During the video he said: "there's even more on the horizon for 2017 like Spider-Man coming to PlayStation 4 and Marvel Vs.

The ACLU is working at both the federal and state level to pass legislation to do precisely that. "It's time for my Republican colleagues to wake up and help us make the Paycheck Fairness Act the law of the land".

"The reason we started this working group, really, was to take a deeper dive into this issue and trying to understand: What are the real root causes to the wage gap? This is going to provide you with the opportunity to gain that knowledge that will help you negotiate better with your employer, ' instead of constantly making speeches on the floor, one side against the other, on Equal Pay Day", Fischer said in an interview. However, there's no clear evidence that tax cuts will increase economic growth, especially when the primary beneficiaries are wealthy Americans who will be less likely to spend their income in the economy. On Thursday, 85 organizations that support pay equity sent a letter to senators opposing Fischer's legislation, saying its non-retaliation provision is so narrow that it only protects employees when they know and use "certain magic words" to discuss pay.

This will be the third try for the Paycheck Fairness Act, which failed in each of last two Congresses.

We need a movement for women's economic freedom.

"I do think there is hope here with the younger generation to demand change", Povich said.
