Gillibrand: Equal Pay Does Not Exist

Apr 8, 2014

On Equal Pay Day Tuesday, New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand told reporters she will continue the fight to ensure women have a fair chance at earning financial security.

The Democrat said she is disappointed in the response from some Republicans to the issue, which she tied to the need for a minimum wage hike.

"It's disappointing that Republicans are saying that equal pay exists; it doesn't," Gillibrand said. "I think they need to hear from the women in their districts and in their states that they don't like being paid 70 cents on the dollar for the same exact work."
