Recognizing Equal Pay Day

Today is Equal Pay Day!  This occasion, held each year on April 8th, marks the extra days into 2014 that the average woman has to work just to make as much as the average male in 2013.  In today's world, women still make just 77 cents to every dollar earned by a man -- and studies show that the gender wage gap increases with age.  In 1963, full-time working women were paid 59 cents to a man's dollar.  We may have come a long way, baby, but we have a ways to go!  This year's Equal Pay Day agenda is in some ways the same as it has been since 1963: demanding equal pay for equal work.  Equal Pay Day (or everyday, for that matter) offers an opportunity for businesses and individuals to think about how they can become part of the solution.  So, how do you plan to commemorate this year's Equal Pay Day?  For more information, click here.
