The truth of the matter is that equal pay is the biggest economic stimulus this country could possibly have. If women were paid equally for comparable work, there would be $200 BILLION dollars more in the economy. Each white woman on the average would bring home $147 more a week; each woman of color would get $250 dollars more. And these women are going to spend their money; they’re not going to invest it in China or send it to Bahamas. They’re going to spend it and create jobs.
