U.S. President Obama pauses while making a statement about Ukraine on the South Lawn of the White House in WashingtonBy Mark Felsenthal ORLANDO, Florida (Reuters) – President Barack Obama used a speech at a community college on Thursday to begin a series of events highlighting economic issues affecting women such as the gender pay gap in which women earn three-quarters as much as their male counterparts. He spoke at the Orlando campus of Valencia College, a two-year institution that has been recognized for placing students in jobs and sending them on for higher degrees. The White House plans similar events in Denver, Boston, Chicago, San Francisco, and New York. The measures would all be aimed at making it easier for women to find good jobs and be paid at levels that match those of their male counterparts.
