Deborah Brake Testifies in Congress on Pay Equity

On March 11, 2010, Professor Deborah Brake testified before the U. S. Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions, in a hearing on pay equity. Professor Brake, in written and oral testimony, discussed the failure of existing pay discrimination laws, including the Equal Pay Act of 1963, to close the gender wage gap, and the need for provisions in two pending bills, the Paycheck Fairness Act and the Fair Pay Act, to strengthen these laws.
