Happy Equal Pay Day, and Don't Spend That Penny All In One Place
Today, Equal Pay Day, women can celebrate, but only a bit. Last year, the average woman made 77 cents on each dollar a man made; today, she makes 78 cents. For African-American women, it's 69 cents. For Hispanic
women, 59 cents. The Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, the first bill signed by President Obama, will help. The Paycheck Fairness Act, now in the Senate, will help more. So party (cheaply) and then make noise.
