Obama To Tout Equal Pay For Equal Work

(Washington, DC) -- President Obama will promote equal pay for equal work today. White House spokesman Jay Carney says the President wants to ensure that women are not paid less than men for the same work. The President will commemorate Equal Pay Day in a White House ceremony to be attended by equal pay champion Lilly Ledbetter. In January's State of the Union address, Obama noted that women earn an average of 77-cents to every dollar that men earn.
