violation of equal pay laws? (woman making more than men)

for the last 8 months I have worked at an assited living home where I am one of three male certified nurses assistants I have recently discovered that ALL certified female CNAs are making $8.00/hour while all the male CNAs make $7.00-$7.50/hour regardless of experience or senority. the pretext for my lower rate of pay is that I am a college student and they have to schedule around my classes, but my classes have never conflicted with my work responsibilities. and there is a female presently employed that also attends college classes and still is at $8.00/hour do I have a discrimination issue that should be persued any advice would be gratfully recieved

This certainly seems like a potential claim for wage-based sex discrimination. In these situations working with an employment attorney is important. Learn more at about sex discrimination claims.

The equal pay law protects men as well as women

You appear to describe an equal pay violation. The equal pay act requires equal pay for both men and women.

Please note: your asked to send your question to lawyers in the state of "id". There is no such state. You should re-submit your question to attorneys in your state.
