Director of Women’s Law project discusses Ledbetter Act and inequalities in the workplace

    During Tuesday’s presidential debate, Katherine Fenton asked how President Barack Obama and Governor Mitt Romney intend to level the playing field when it comes to inequalities in the workplace and females earning less money than their male counterparts.

    Both President Obama and Governor Romney skirted around the question, but viewers did come away with more knowledge about the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of 2009 and its implications.

    Carol Tracy, Executive Director of the Women’s Law Project, joins host Dave Heller on NewsWorks Tonight to discuss the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act and hone in on the issue of sex discrimination in the work place, the Paycheck Fairness Act, and the coveted women’s vote this November.
