Working women deserve equal opportunity in the workplace. Unfortunately, the Supreme Court dealt a huge blow to the rights of working women and civil rights protection recently when they voted by a decision of 5-4 to overturn basic worker's protection. It has been nearly forty years since the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 which was supposed to help level the playing field in the workplace, but the sobering reality is that women still only make 68 cents for every dollar that a man earns. One of the reasons that this gap continues to persist is because of discriminatory pay practices.
