(Washington, DC) -- President Obama is pushing equal pay for both genders. During an Equal Pay Day ceremony, Obama said it is time that women are paid the same as men for doing the same jobs. He argued that America should be a "level playing field." Obama said women earn an average of 77-cents to every dollar that men earn. He called it wrong and embarrassing. The President also signed two new executive actions to protect women from being paid less for doing the same jobs.
