The Obama administration is backing legislation that includes regulations requiring U.S. businesses to provide to the government data about employee
pay as it relates to the sex, race and national origin of employees.
In an orchestrated effort that included a statement by President Barack Obama and an event at the White House featuring Vice President Joe Biden,
Attorney General Eric Holder and Labor Secretary Hilda Solis, the president and his cabinet endorsed the Paycheck Fairness Act.
The House approved the act in 2009, but the Senate did not approve it. In the 111th Congress, both the House and the Senate have offered legislation
that covers a wide range of workplace requirements and regulations, including training girls and women to become better at negotiating pay and
benefits, and the establishment of a data base of U.S. workers’ pay in both the public and private sector.
At the White House on Tuesday, Biden was the keynote speaker at a Middle Class Task Force event where he told invited guests that the Obama
administration is “on the right side of history” by passing legislation to ensure women are paid the same as their male counterparts.
“Women make up nearly half of all workers on U.S. payrolls, and two-thirds of families with children are headed either by two working parents or by
a single parent who works,” Biden said
"(A) complete a survey of the data that is currently available to the Federal Government relating to employee pay information for use in the
enforcement of Federal laws prohibiting pay discrimination and, in consultation with other relevant Federal agencies, identify additional data
collections that will enhance the enforcement of such laws; and
"(B) based on the results of the survey and consultations under subparagraph (A), issue regulations to provide for the collection of pay information
data from employers as described by the sex, race, and national origin of employees."

Come On Sheeple,,, Do you really believe they care about the equality of pay between a man and a woman in the work place?
I don't think so,,, They are more interested in how much they can tax us.
That's Right, I believe it is just a way to track how much the American Working Public is being payed, So you can be taxed Accordingly, Which Means
More Taxes they can collect and give away. Yes, Your money and my money going to pay for their Boyfriends and Girlfriends and that Condo in N. Y. or
