President says women face outdated policies at work

WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama says the economy hasn't caught up to the new reality that women now make up about half of the workforce.
Obama says in his weekly radio and Internet address that women earn about 77 cents for every dollar men earn. He says women face outdated policies that hold them back, and that hurts their families and the broader economy.
Obama is calling in Congress to raise the minimum wage to $10.10 per hour.
In the GOP address, Gov. Rick Snyder of Michigan says there's an economic comeback in states led by Republican governors. He says it can happen nationally if the country follows their lead.
