Proano 1 Borys Proano Proffesor Hollis Bus 137 23, January 2019 1. After researching topics and events of the past, the one that caught my interest was the Equal Pay Act of 1963. To summarize; The Equal Pay Act of 1963 is a law put in place to amend the Fair Labor Standards Act. What I liked about this is that, me having a lot of women figures in my life, aimed to abolish wage disparity based on sex. One of my favorite presidents from the past, John F. Kennedy signed this law. I believe this was a big step into creating what the business world today is. There is a lot of big female figures including: Indra Nooyi, Irene Rosenfeld, and Virginia Rometty just to name a few, if it wasn’t for this act they would not be making as much or even have a big role in there companies today. After researching I found out that women’s salaries have risen from 62.3% of men’s earnings in 1979 to 80.4% in 2004. Today may not be where we want it to be for women but acts like this help build bigger and better careers for women in the future.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
