Equal Pay Day – April 12, 2016

Equal Pay Day EventSometimes we find ourselves wishing for more than 24 hours in a day or more than seven days in a week, but more time is not always better: It takes women about 15 months to earn what men earn in 12, thanks to the gender pay gap.

We “celebrate” this occasion every April on a day known as Equal Pay Day, which is the symbolic day when women’s earnings (78 cents to men’s dollar) finally catch up to men’s earnings from the previous year. Equal Pay Day is a powerful occasion to raise awareness and organize action around the gender pay gap in our communities.

See the latest information for our state here:  The Gender Pay Gap by State

Equal Pay Day 2016 will fall on Tuesday, April 12, so mark your calendar! 

Stay tuned for more events and info!
