Equal pay act remembered on 50th anniversary

Monday marks the 50th anniversary of the Equal Pay Act.

President John F Kennedy signed the act in 1963.

It was created to make sure women could earn the same salary as men.

Right now, women make 77 cents to every dollar a man makes.

President Obama says while there have been improvements, there is still more to be done.

Some say there is still a long way to go when it comes to pay equality.

Last year, senate Republicans blocked a bill that Democrats said would close loop-holes in the original act.
