Throughout the year, five Equal Pay Days are observed for women of varying backgrounds and circumstances. Today, March 24, we observe All Women’s Equal Pay Day, as this day marks the date that all women have to work into the new year to finally catch up to what white, non-Hispanic men earned last year.
That’s 15 months. Or, if you look at a typical 9:00-5:00 work day, women start working for free at 2:40 p.m.
The average woman is paid $0.82 for every $1.00 paid white, non-Hispanic men, losing hundreds of thousands of dollars over a 40-year career.
