Originally aired: Monday, June 10, 2013
Monday marks the 50th anniversary of the Equal Pay Act. President Barack Obama said Monday that 50 years after enactment of the Equal Pay Act, the nation still faces gender wage disparities that must be fixed. "This is the 21st century," he declared. "It's time to close that gap." Acknowledging there definitely is a gap, an often-mentioned statistic is that women on average earn about 77 cents for every dollar earned by men, KIRO Radio's Ross and Burbank Show had a discussion about just what they think is responsible.
