One giant step...
A major milestone was reached today in the USA with the signing into law of the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of 2009. President Obama along with his wife, the First Lady and several key members of his cabinet introduced the namesake of this Bill by saying, "It's about justice. It's about who we are. And on this "wonderful day," we're getting a step closer to both of those things."
It's remarkable to me that it is the 21st Century and we are still at the point equal pay for men and women and people of difference races is not something that happens regularly, if at all. My hope and prayer is that this legislation will be the beginning of an avalanche of justice in not only this area of concern, but across the board!
