Women fight for equal pay

Women fight for equal pay

The Committee says Tuesday is how far into the new year women must work to earn what men made last year.

Over fifty years after the passage of the Equal Pay Act, women continue to earn about eighty percent as much money as men.

It's not just progressive states like California taking the wage gap seriously, either - North Dakota passed a bill in 2015 strengthening employer salary reporting requirements.

Voluntary, private and public organizations with 250 or more employees will have to reveal any gender discrepancies in staff pay by April next year. African American, Hispanic, and Native American women nearly always earn less than white and Asian women, meaning Equal Pay Day for these groups would fall on dates later than April 4.

Lyft plans to give 20 percent of its revenue to women's charities. It's also really important to be very transparent and audit yourself on whether or not you are paying fairly", she said in an interview with NPR's Marketplace this morning, "We're looking at our performance ratings. Here in the United States, women make of influence 80% of all consumer spending decisions. The significance of holding it on a Tuesday is to "represent how far into the next work week women must work to earn what men earned the previous week". That legislation empowered women to recover wages lost to pay discrimination.
