The Paycheck Fairness Act is legislation being considered by the United States Congress to expand the scope of the Equal Pay Act of 1963 and the Fair Labor Standards Act as part of an effort to address male–female income disparity in the United States. 4.3/5

Sen. *** Durbin (D., Ill.), who is leading the Equal Pay Day push by Senate Democrats to pass the Paycheck Fairness Act, pays women on his staff far less than he pays men. Durbin took to the Senate floor on Tuesday to preach on the importance of passing legislation aimed at solving the gender pay gap. “How serious is equal pay for equal work to working people across America?” said Durbin, “I think it’s critical.” The average female salary is $11,505 lower than the average male salary in Durbin’s office, according to an analysis of Senate salary data from fiscal year 2013 that showed that more than two-thirds of Democratic Senate offices pay men more than women. Four of the five highest paid staffers on Durbin’s staff are men, according to the analysis. Not a single member of the Senate Democrat leadership has a female chief of staff or communications director, the Washington Times points out.

It's no secret that, in most cases, there's a gender gap in wages across the country. Not even the current administration is impervious to such truths, as a recent study shows female White House staffers make 88 cents for every dollar their male counterparts make. Senate Democrats plan to discuss the Paycheck Fairness Act this week, which would further regulate how private companies compensate their employees. The bill is expected to face stiff opposition from the Republican-controlled House. What do you think about the gender gap in wages? And do you think further regulation from the federal government is the answer? Thanks for your thoughts and comments.
