To the Editor: Women's pay better ...but still not enough

Jack Taylor suggested in a letter published in Wednesday's paper that women should be happy that President Obama signed into law the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act 2009 which "restored the protections against pay discrimination....".  Really? I think women would be a lot happier if in 2013, four years later, women were being paid more than 77 cents for every dollar paid to men. (This is according to Census Bureau Data.) Granted, it's still better than the 59 cents they were earning after JFK signed the Equal Pay Act into law in 1963.
