Paycheck Fairness Act: I Want My Million Bucks!

Some women are being cheated out of more than a million dollars over their career spans, thanks to the 24 percent wage gap between men and women. The average American woman was paid 76 cents for every dollar made by a man, and over the course of her career, the average woman loses approximately $523,000 to the wage gap.

This could all change, however, depending on the outcome of a Senate vote on Nov. 17. An organization called Peacekeeper is staging a campaign to let you know what you can do to help it along, and calling that campaign "I Want My Million Bucks."
