Unequal pay harms U.S. women.
How many working women think they’re paid fairly for the work they do? Right now, with the economy still struggling to provide jobs for all those who want them, many women are probably happy just to be employed.
But women are still paid only 77 cents for every $1 men receive. This unequal pay continues to harm American women and the families who depend on their wages. (According to a recent report, women are the primary breadwinners in 40 percent of American households.)
