Today is Blog for Fair Pay Day.
The fact that over 45 years have passed since the Equal Pay Act was signed and women still face unfair pay shows that discrimination is alive and well. A wage gap still exists in every state, women are poorer than men in all racial and ethnic groups, and black women have a median net worth of $5.
We have a long way to go.
That's why calling awareness to unfair pay is so important. The ability to be economically stable and independent is crucial for women, and we cannot settle for anything less than 100% of what men make.
Take action today. And as usual, make some noise! Talk it, blog it, post it, tweet it.
WE WANT FAIR PAY, ALREADY!
