President Obama's First Change - Striking a Blow for Diversity and Equality
In the first legislative act of his new administration, on January 29th President Barack Obama signed the Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, which ensures that workers who experience pay discrimination are given adequate time to discover and potentially remedy the situation.
Prior to this legislation, workers had to file a claim within six months of the first occurrence of discrimination; for most, their first paycheck. This presented a problem for workers who didn't discover the pay discrepancy until years after receiving that initial paycheck.
Said President Obama, “It is fitting that with the very first bill I sign — the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act — we are upholding one of this nation’s first principles: that we are all created equal and each deserve a chance to pursue our own version of happiness.”
