President Obama signed the Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Restoration Act, which allows
victims of pay discrimination to file a complaint with the government against their
employer within 180 days of their last paycheck. Previously, victims (most often women)
were only allowed 180 days from the date of the first unfair paycheck. This Act is named
after a former employee of Goodyear who alleged that she was paid 15–40% less than
her male counterparts, which was later found to be accurate.
