     Designating the week of June 7, 1993, as ``Equal Pay Act 30th 
                          Anniversary Week''.

Whereas the landmark Federal statute, the Equal Pay Act of 1963, requiring equal 
        pay for equal work between women and men was enacted 30 years ago, on 
        June 10, 1963;
Whereas the number of women in full-time, year-round jobs has nearly tripled 
        since 1963;
Whereas women now constitute 45.5 percent of the United States labor force;
Whereas women and people of color will constitute two-thirds of new entrants 
        into the United States labor force by the year 2000;
Whereas women and people of color continue to be undervalued and underpaid for 
        the skills, effort, and responsibility required by the work that they 
Whereas women and people of color continue to be segregated into occupational 
        clusters which still are among the lowest paid and with the least 
        opportunity for advancement;
Whereas women still earn only 70 percent of the wages earned by men, and women 
        of color earn significantly less; and
Whereas wage discrimination continues to be a persistent problem in the 1990s, 
        limiting many workers' access to basic necessities such as safe housing, 
        affordable and quality dependent care, comprehensive health care, 
        education, and sufficient pension and retirement plans: Now, therefore, 
        be it
    Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United 
States of America in Congress assembled, That the week of June 7, 1993, 
be designated as ``Equal Pay Act 30th Anniversary Week''. The President 
is authorized and requested to issue a proclamation calling upon the 
people of the United States to observe this week with appropriate 
programs, ceremonies, and activities to heighten awareness of 
continuing wage disparities based on race, sex, and national origin.
