  • Equal Pay Day emphasizes inequity in gender pay

On Equal Pay Day, women's advocates call attention to the gender pay gap - the phenomenon in which, year after year, women are found to be making less money than men. Using US Census Bureau data from 2016 (the most recent year available), it compares the median earnings of men to those of women.

Nationally, women in academics earned 88 cents of a male dollar, though those with master's degrees earned only 73 cents.

Created by the National Committee on Pay Equity in 1996, Equal Pay Day offers an opportunity to reflect on the wage disparities that still exist between men and women in several industries. Black women in Colorado make $21,717 less than white men in the state, while Latinas earn $27,323 less each year.

Meanwhile Diageo Great Britain reported a mean hourly rate for women as 4.1% lower than men's, with women earning 96p for every £1 men earn. According to AAUW, research shows the US economy would produce additional income of more than $512.6 billion if women received equal pay.

The Institute for Women's Policy Research gives IL an overall grade of "C-plus" for women's earnings and employment.

In Wyoming, the gender wage gap is 36%, the biggest in the nation.

On Tuesday, April 10, The Works Bakery and Cafe is honoring Equal Pay for the fourth annual year by providing female customers with a 20 percent discount across all eight of its locations, including Durham and Portsmouth.

Vicki Shabo, vice president of workplace policies and strategies at the National Partnership, said movement of a penny up or down has been typical in many states and can be driven by increases in job categories that either have higher ratios of men to women or women to men.

MST Solutions, the Chandler-based leader in CRM and marketing automation solutions has joined many top tech companies in closing the gender wage gap for its employees. Also, Oregon is one of just four states where employers can't rely on a candidate's salary history during the hiring process-a law passed in the state in 2017.

The gap does not consider that, on average, women work less hours than men and are less experienced than their male counterparts.

Though the state has made strides toward gender equality "women of all races, at all levels of the financial spectrum and at all levels of education continue to be underpaid compared to their male peers", Neufeld added. They say higher minimum wages and tipped wages could close the gender pay gap. The national average cost of childcare is nearly $8,700 a year. "I was raised by very powerful and empowered women that were always sort of against odds finding their way".

Organizations such as Granite State Progress and New Hampshire Women's Foundation have hosted workshops in the past that teach women how to negotiate salaries.

Butter Bakery Cafe on Nicollet Avenue in Minneapolis is one of the places where Equal Pay facts could not be ignored.
