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

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

Women have been gaining ground by leaps and bounds in local, state, and federal government, and, far from petering out, the Women's March roared back to life in January. Data from the U.S. Census show the 2018 wage gap between women and men is about 20 percent. As owner of the music venue Rambling House in Columbus, Jen Lynch said pay equality is an issue she cares very deeply about.

Not all of the gender wage gap can be explained by occupational choice, however.

On average, women in the United States are paid about 80 percent of what men earn-that's about 80.5 cents on the dollar. Knowing what coworkers earn would make getting equal pay easier and prevent employer retaliation. Institutions and work structures that perpetuate these the same systems, such as reliance on previous salaries to negotiate pay rates, keep the wage gap alive. For women of color, the pay gap is even wider.

The study emphasizes the disadvantage the wage gap holds against working women in Colorado who consistently have less money to put toward rent, childcare, and education because of the wage gap. "There is consistently a pattern of men being paid more". The National Partnership for Women and Families released a report indicating that Latinas in New Mexico are paid 55 cents and Latinas in California are paid 43 cents for every dollar paid to white, non-Hispanic men.

The NPWF is working to expedite legislation to end pay discrimination, diminish wage disparities, allow for paid sick days, end discrimination against pregnant workers, and increase the minimum wage.

Women earn just over $45,000 while men earn a little over $51,000 on average.

"It's clear that discrimination contributes to it-and equally clear that it's causing grave harm to women, families, and the country", Ness said. In reality, experts contend that it will take a commitment from employers themselves to level the playing field. The Jackson business operator practices pay equity. We also commend Sen.

All together, women in Minnesota earn almost $14 billion less than men in Minnesota each year.

The average salary of health IT professionals varies by gender and race. "And how do we make that adjustment for everyone?" As such, the day is observed at different times each year, but the sentiment is always the same: there is a painful injustice in how men and women are compensated for their work.

Robinson admits not every situation is the same, and hard negotiation tactics don't always guarantee you'll get what you ask for.

Advocates of the Equal Pay Day narrative don't include this fine print in their advertising.
