There were some questions about the government’s involvement in mandating equal pay.
Why do people think it's government's job to mandate #EqualPay?

If you think women need the govt. to force employers to pay us a certain amount, you see little value in us to begin with. #EqualPay

Mostly, people are pleased that the president has placed this executive action on companies to pay deserving employees the appropriate amounts. Though we may not hear about it everyday, the wage gap still exists.
