The Paycheck Fairness Act would also reinstate the Clinton administration's Equal Pay Matters Initiative; mandate the U.S. Department of Labor's (DOL) continued collection of data about women workers (a practice the Bush administration apparently plans to discontinue), and strengthen enforcement of equal pay laws among federal contractors.
