Bill for equal pay for women

Posted: Updated:
Birmingham, AL -

    A bill that would make it harder for companies to pay women less than men for the same work faces a tough road in Washington, DC today.
    Democrats are rallying behind campaign-season legislation curbing paycheck discrimination against women.
      But, the bill may stand little chance of surviving a showdown vote today in the Senate.
      At least five Republicans are needed to keep the measure alive.
    Republicans have the backing of business groups and say the measure will tie the hands of employers.
     The bill would also be easier for aggrieved workers to sue employers.
