Equal Pay Act and Pay Equity-Past and Future

President John F. Kennedy signed the Equal Pay Act of 1963 (EPA) with the hope that this act would draw attention to “the unconscionable practice of paying female employees less wages than male employees for the same job.”1 To that end, the act prohibits payment of different wages to men and women who perform equal work in the same workplace. Yet, more than 50 years since the law’s enactment, most commentators agree that the EPA has proven ineffective in eradicating gender-based wage discrimination.
