CEO of FedEx speaks to President Obama about gender pay gap and the need for voter ID laws

In his interview, he also explained why his company is partnering with the Florida Department of Children and Families to deliver vaccines to children in the state — but not in Atlanta, his city — and, importantly, why he hopes to one day be able to truly afford health care for his six children, and help others afford it as well.

Mr. Abney also discussed— among other things— his career, customer service and compensation. Watch the full interview here.
