I have been doing a little research on the proposed “Paycheck Fairness Act” and it underlying supporting legislation the “Equal Pay Act of 1963”.  The “Equal Pay Act” allows (and the Paycheck Fairness Act would leave unchanged) seniority as an affirmative defense for paying unequal wages.

I am totally in support of equal pay for equal work but, all things being equal, paying one person more that another simply because they have been there longer doesn’t seem equitable (fair?) to me.  Why is no one attacking that?
