In the News: The Gender Wage Gap

April 12, 2016 was Equal Pay Day. In 2015, Equal Pay Day was on April 14th. In 2013, it was on April 9th. Why? The date moves not with the day of the week or the calendar, but based on what the gender pay gap is for the previous year. In 2015, a woman would have had to continue working until April 12, 2016 to make the same salary a man did in the year 2015.


The Holiday Nobody is Celebrating

You may not know that today – April 8, 2014 – is actually a holiday.  But it’s one that doesn’t exactly call for a celebration.

Equal Pay Day is a date chosen each year that symbolizes how far into the new year a woman must work to earn what her male counterparts earned during the prior year.  It falls each year on a Tuesday, to symbolize how far into the new work week women must work to earn what mean earned the previous week.
