Obama address "women issues "front and center"

"After five years of fractious political combat, President Obama declared independence from Congress on Tuesday as he outlined a series of limited initiatives on jobs, wages, retirement and the environment that he will take without legislative approval." (Peter Baker)

President Obama announce his plan for the future in regard to the economics during State of the Union on Tuesday night, relying on his executive authority. "Mr. Obama focus his attention to the growing economics gap in America", by doing so he set an executive order to raise the minimum wages to ten dollar an hour for federal workers and saving account for people who can't access to "traditional retirement option"

Obama also declared the "end to the wage gap between men and women. On average, women earn 77 cents to every dollar a man makes in the workplace" (Brianna Keilar). The attention of women's right is important on president Obama and his party agenda.
