A Guide to Women’s Equal Pay Rights

Other Titles
Abstract
[Excerpt] Equal pay is a family issue. Women make up nearly half of the U.S. labor force and are a growing number of breadwinners in their families. More women are also working in positions and fields that have been traditionally occupied by men.When women are not paid fairly, not only do they suffer, but so do their families. While progress has been made, the pay gap affects all women and is larger among minority women and women with disabilities. Over the course of her lifetime, this pay gap will cost a woman and her family lost wages, reduced pensions and diminished Social Security benefits. This guide is designed to help working women understand their rights under certain laws that govern equal pay and compensation.
