In his State of the Union address, President Obama called for an end to unequal pay for men and women. The president said women still make 77 cents for every dollar a man makes. An oft-cited statistic, but controlling for college majors and occupation drops that wage gap to 93 cents. What can women do to finally close that gap? And why haven't laws like the Equal Pay Act done it already?
