Hosted by

We’ve heard these numbers before: women make 77 cents for dollar that men earn. President Obama campaigned to close that wage gap. This week, he’s signing an order that will make the Labor Secretary collect race and gender wage data from federal contractors. We take a closer look at how gender and wages really break down.
