In this time of trouble when more men than women are losing their jobs and the woman becomes sole support of the family, we need “equal pay for equal work” more than ever. Or are we forced to believe that the radicals among us are truly trying to supress the middle income families until they become members of the working poor, earning minimum wage, subservient to the wealthiest among us? Many women would prefer to stay home and raise their children, and then return to work when the children are grown. The current suppression of the middle class makes this no longer a choice. A great number of women must return to work to help support the family, and equal pay for equal work should no longer be in question.
