A bill that calls for equal pay in the workplace has failed to pass the U.S. Senate.  Oregon Senator Jeff Merkley says the bill would have prevented differences in wages based on gender.  It also would have prohibited retaliation against employees who reveal their own wages or seek details about their employers' pay policies. 

Republicans say the legislation would have placed unnecessary burdens on businesses.  It failed to get the 60 votes needed to pass.  Democrats will still use it to gain political capital heading into the elections.
