10 Years After Lilly Ledbetter, Media Still Running Discredited ‘Gender Wage Gap’ Claims

Article here. Excerpt:

'Who could have foreseen that a law designed to help one specific person wouldn’t solve the world’s alleged problem?

Ten years ago, President Barack Obama signed the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Restoration Act. It was the first bill he signed as president – and he made sure we all knew this throughout his presidency. Ledbetter worked at Goodyear Tire as a supervisor and later a manager, but found out she was being paid significantly less than her male counterparts. She sued and won, but the decision was overturned on appeal because she hadn’t filed her claim within a certain amount of time. The law named after her changed that.

For 10 years, I have tried to find an example of someone else being helped by the Lilly Ledbetter Act. I’ve found none.'
