We strive to be positive, but today is not a day for celebration.
Today March 31, 2020 is #equalpayday ... the average woman must work 3 full months into the next year to earn what the average man earned the previous year.
Put another way, women earn $0.82 for every $1 earned by men.
The wage gap is worse for our black and brown sisters.
Black Women: Aug 13 — $0.62
Native American Women: Oct 1 — $0.57
Latina Women: Oct. 29 — $0.54
And then there's the motherhood pay gap
Moms: June 4 — $0.70
All U.S. moms earn $0.70 compared to all U.S. dads
*Data is based on 2019 U.S. Census data on median earnings for full-time, year-round workers.
