Boca Raton, FL –Congresswoman Lois Frankel (FL-22) will introduce the Equal Pay Day resolution later today when she returns to Washington. The bill recognizes that much work still needs to be done to reduce the pay disparity between women and men. Today, Tuesday April 9 is Equal Pay Day because it symbolizes how far in 2013 women must work in order to make what their male counterparts earned in 2012. This means that it took more than three months into 2013 for women’s wages to finally catch up to what men were paid in 2012.
Washington, DC – Congresswoman Lois Frankel (FL-22) today attended her first bill signing as she joined President Barack Obama, as he signed into law the re-authorized Violence Against Women Act, a week after she helped pass this important bipartisan bill.
