Far from being resolved by the enactment of the Equal Pay Act of 1963, equal pay for equal work continues to be a key issue in the United States. Indeed, each year, the Business and Professional Women foundation [BPW/USA] advocates across the country Equal Pay Day events in April to bring attention to Pay Equity.
