EQUAL PAY FACTS.
Women's Bureau (DOL), Washington, DC.
EQUAL PAY MEANS PAYMENT OF "RATE OF THE JOB" WITHOUT REGARD TO SEX. EQUAL PAY LAWS WERE ENACTED IN 29 STATES FROM 1919 TO 1965. FOUR ADDITIONAL STATES HAVE FAIR EMPLOYMENT PRACTICES LAWS. SUPPORT FOR SUCH LEGISLATION HAS COME FROM WOMEN'S AND CIVIC ORGANIZATIONS, AFL-CIO, AND THE PRESIDENT'S AND STATE COMMISSIONS ON THE STATUS OF WOMEN. THE FEDERAL EQUAL PAY ACT OF 1963, ENACTED AS AN AMENDMENT TO THE FEDERAL FAIR LABOR STANDARDS ACT, BECAME EFFECTIVE GENERALLY JUNE 11, 1964. THE INTERNATIONAL LABOR ORGANIZATION, OF WHICH THE UNITED STATES IS A MEMBER, PROVIDES IN ITS CONSTITUTION THAT MEN AND WOMEN SHOULD RECEIVE EQUAL PAY. THIS LEAFLET IS AVAILABLE AS GPO NUMBER L13.11--2 FOR 5 CENTS FROM SUPERINTENDENT OF DOCUMENTS, U.S. GOVERNMENT PRINTING OFFICE, WASHINGTON, D.C. 20402. (PS)
