Equal Pay Day for ALL Women should be on December 31, but it's not. The average woman must work far into the next year to earn what the average man earns the previous year.
EQUAL PAY DAYS 2018
Thank you to WJLA Goodmorning Washinigton for inviting us to talk equal pay in advance of Equal Pay Day.
Dates are based on 2016 U.S. Census data on median earnings for full-time, year-round workers. Because they are observances, adjustments may have been made to avoid weekends and holidays.
