Closing The Gap: 50 Years Seeking Equal Pay   Half a century after President Kennedy signed the Equal Pay Act, women in both high-paying, high-growth STEM careers and those in part-time, low-wage jobs still only make, on average, 77 cents for every dollar earned by men. In that time span, the current wage gap improved at a rate of less than half a cent per year; if it continues at that pace, the wage gap will not close completely until 2053. Month to month, women - primary or co-breadwinners in six out of every 10 American families - face greater financial burdens in meeting living costs such as food, housing, transportation, health care and child care.
