Obama Signs Equal-Pay Legislation

WASHINGTON — President Obama signed his first bill into law on Thursday, approving equal-pay legislation that he said would “send a clear message that making our economy work means making sure it works for everybody...,”

“It is fitting that with the very first bill I sign — the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act — we are upholding one of this nation’s first principles: that we are all created equal and each deserve a chance to pursue our own version of happiness,” the president said.

This is a gift for our girls. The world is a better place for them because of those who came before us-those who fought for equal rights, equal pay and justice.

Thank you, Mr. President.
