Obama Pitches Equal Pay to Win Women Even as Charges Drop

Some days, it may seem that President Barack Obama’s running mate is Lilly Ledbetter.

Ledbetter is a former Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. manager who sued the firm after discovering near the end of a 19-year career that she was being paid more than $13,000 less than three male colleagues. Her case was thrown out after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled she missed a deadline for filing the lawsuit.
