"Today, we commemorate Equal Pay Day, the day when women's wages finally catch up to what men were paid in the previous year," said Congresswoman Slaughter. "Right now, it takes a woman 457 days to earn what a man makes in 365 days, a statistic that becomes even more appalling when you consider that families are increasingly relying on women's wages to make ends meet. I'm calling on my colleagues to pass the Paycheck Fairness Act without delay, because no one should be paid less for the same job based on their gender."
