SHARE Obama guidance & press schedule, April 8, 2014: Women Equal Pay

President Barack Obama on Tuesday returns to a core theme: equal pay for women. Obama will sign an executive order “prohibiting federal contractors from retaliating against employees who choose to discuss their compensation.” And federal contractors will have file reports with the Department of Labor on wages, broken down by race and sex. The first bill Obama signed–on Jan. 29, 2009– was the fair pay Lilly Ledbetter Act.
