Obama Renews Call for Women’s Pay Equity

In his Saturday radio and Internet address, Obama calls it an embarrassment that women earn less than men even in the same professions and with the same education.

Obama this week issued an executive order prohibiting federal contractors from retaliating against employees who discuss their salaries. Such an order is considered a way for women to become better informed about their pay.

In the weekly Republican address, congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers of Washington says the economy under Obama is hurting women. She says Republican proposals to help small businesses and increase jobs will benefit women as well as men.
