One step forward in the direction of the 1963 Equal Pay Act came 21 years earlier when the Federal Government decreed that all women working in defense plants must be paid the same amout as the men performing the same jobs:

"George W. Taylor, War Labor Board vice-chairman, wrote the decision and said that any other condition than that of pay equality was 'not conducive to maximum production'."

"Taylor pointed out that more and more women will be called to industry as the war progresses and said -"
