VIDEO: Obama Reinforces That Women Deserve Equal Pay For Equal Work

President Obama highlights the importance of making sure our economy rewards the hard work of every American — including America's women. The President again calls for Congress to ensure that women earn equal pay for equal work and increase the minimum wage to $10.10, which would give nearly 28 million Americans the raise they deserve. He underscores his belief that providing opportunity for working women and families is the right thing to do for our economy, because when women succeed, America succeeds.

He also puts in a plug for another pizza maker that's not waiting for congress to act before giving its employees a raise.

"St. Louis-based Pi Pizzeria, are raising their wages too — not out of charity, but because it's good for business. And by the way, Pi makes a really good pizza. "
