It was fun to watch President Obama sign the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Restoration Act, with Lilly Ledbetter herself at his side. Michelle Obama attended the signing, along with the bill’s co-sponsors, labor leaders, and others. I noticed Senator Olympia Snowe smiling broadly in the group of co-sponsors behind the president. You can watch it yourself and smile, too:

  1. Here’s the report and a nice photo from the NY Times: http://www.nytimes.com/2009/01/30/us/politics/30ledbetter-web.html?hp.

    The article says that Maine’s Senator Susan Collins was also there. I thought I caught a glimpse of her but as she was not listed as a co-sponsor I decided I must have been mistaken. Evidently not.

    Nice photo op for her. Let’s hope she continues her support of workers by voting for the confirmation of Hilda Solis as labor secretary and the passage of the Employee Free Choice Act.
