Equal Pay – Glass Ceiling Report

Legislation | Documents/Reports | Links | Press Releases

I feel very strongly that women should receive equal pay for equal work. In an effort to understand the reasons that women continue to lag behind men in the wages they earn and consistently earn only 80 cents to the male dollar, I joined Representative John Dingell in authoring two reports, “A New Look Through the Glass Ceiling: Where are the Women” (October 2001) and “Is the Glass Ceiling a Permanent Fixture” (November 2003). The results of the reports reveal the impact of important personal and external factors and track earnings year-by-year for 20 years as well as the persistence of discrimination in the workplace.
