Salary Negotiation Experts Talk National Equal Pay Day

April 8, 2014

Today is National Equal Pay Day, which is not an event worth celebrating. President Obama and his fellow Democrats are making hay of the day in hopes of turning the gender pay gap into a major issue this election year. 

The president signed two executive orders today: one keeping federal contractors from retaliating against employees who discuss their salary, and the other requiring those contractors provide compensation data to the Labor Department.
