Equal Pay Day points to 100-year wage gap for women's work

Gender pay gap revealed at Frimley Health NHS Foundation Trust Equal Pay Day points to 100-year wage gap for women's work

Brooke Malone was only 20 years old when she said she experienced "the gender wage gap": earning less money for equal work when compared to a male co-worker. However, women on average are paid 20 percent less than men, and compared to white men, Black women are paid 38 percent less and Latinas are paid 46 percent less.

In Maryland, women lose a combined total of more than $18.2 billion each year because of differences in pay, the National Partnership said. This date symbolizes how far into the current year women must work, in addition to the entire previous year, to match their male counterparts' income for the previous year. African-American women earn 62 cents for every dollar a White man earns, Hispanic women make 54 cents.

On Tuesday, the average woman's annual income finally "caught up" to what the typical white man earned by December 31. Ironically, however, as the data begins to flood in, the publication has also revealed that, while fashion and beauty brands tend to employ a majority of female staffers, they "are among the worst offenders in the country when it comes to paying men more than women".

These shifts have to be real. "We can not be responsible for cultural problems that create a barrier for women".

Equal pay for equal work. It also finds that there is a gender-based wage gap in every single state and the District of Columbia.

A report by the Institute for Women's Policy Research (IWPR) shows that equal pay for equal work improves the overall Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of our national economy. While ignoring legislation that might allow IN women to improve their economic status, legislative leaders always find time for bills aimed at restricting reproductive rights. This is important information for women to have: Women - like men - should be aware of how the choices they make about what to study in school, what jobs, industries and specialties to pursue, and how much time to dedicate to their careers will impact their long-term earnings. And now, more and more of us are the principal breadwinners.

I don't think at all that that means that we don't care about people. "Because that sounds ridiculous to me". Billionaire Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is due to testify about the scandal before US Congress next week.

The focal point of the event was a "consciousness-raising " cookie sale, meant to illustrate the point that women continue to make only 80 cents for every dollar earned by men in similar positions. However, even in real estate where there are more female brokers, women earn 70.5% of what their average male counterpart earns. Without data, it's very hard to ensure that women are paid accordingly.

A standout in the collection is the green gossamer, cropped tee with the message "Equal Pay" across the front. This has to be a type of cultural change that permeates society as a whole to address deep social and economic inequities.

However, recent examples, including Starbucks, show that companies can act to equalize pay, Miller said.

Enforcement and accountability are huge issues at play here. "I personally have experienced pay discrimination as a chef, so understand that this is not a figment of anyone's imagination, it's real". "Families, businesses and the economy suffer as a result", the report says. "It's clear that discrimination contributes to it - and equally clear that it's causing grave harm to women, families and the country".

The report was based on disclosures and goals to help investors determine the best practices on pay equity.

Women need to get paid fairly.
