Apr 14, 2015 Press Release
Today, on Equal Pay Day, Congresswoman Cheri Bustos called on Congress to pass the Paycheck Fairness Act to help close the still persistent wage gap between men and women. In Illinois’ 17th Congressional District, women make only 73 cents on the dollar compared to men for doing the same work, even worse than the national average of 78 cents on the dollar.
