    Obama signs equal-pay bill

    President Obama signed his first bill Thursday, a gender pay equity law that had been a hallmark of his campaign for the White House.

    The Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act makes it easier for workers to sue companies for pay discrimination and effectively reverses a 2007 Supreme Court decision that had given workers 180 days to file a lawsuit after they discovered the alleged discrimination.

    A good signing, but it is easier to sign a bill then to put this into practice. Sexism still has a silent hold over a lot of smaller places.

    I never liked the 180 day rule. Companies claim that people knew about the discrepency long before they did.
