The next Equal Pay Day is Tuesday, April 20, 2010. This date symbolizes how far into 2010 women must work to earn what men earned in 2009.
Equal Pay Day was originated by the National Committee on Pay Equity (NCPE) in 1996 as a public awareness event to illustrate the gap between men's and women's wages.
Wear Red to show your support....
Because women earn less, on average, than men, they must work longer for the same amount of pay. The wage gap is even greater for most women of color. Y'all know that ain't right!!!!
