The Gender Wage Gap Is Getting Worse for Some Women

File Generous maternity schemes impose a cost on university budgets

Even though more attention is being paid to the gender pay gap, "large USA employers are not making collective progress towards closing the gender pay gap", Visier says in a press release. The American Association of University Women (AAUW) encourages you to get educated, to make your voices heard to Congress, and even learn how to better negotiate your salary, because as Brit + Co's own Brit Morin said past year: "Empowered women empower women". The wage gap for mothers is 71 cents for every dollar paid to fathers.

Nationally, the wage gap is worse for women of color. High-profile companies like Starbucks, Apple, Salesforce, Intel and Adobe, among others, have recently reached full pay parity for women and underrepresented minorities in the United States.

The third bill, from Goldin and Democratic Senator Maryellen Goodwin, would require organizations with 100 or more employees to annually report wage disparities to the state Department of Labor and Training.

Women earn on average 79 cents for every dollar men earn. For Mom, it's May 30; African American women are August 7, Native American women on September 27, and Latinas on November 1. That adds up to an individual loss of nearly $8,200 every year, enough for a woman to pay almost ten months of rent, more than a year of college tuition, or sixty-four weeks of food for her and her family.

Among those surveyed, 61 percent believe there remains "significant obstacles that make it harder for women to get ahead than men", and 75 percent agree that the government should "continue making changes to give men and women equality in the workplace".

Experts say the problem isn't an easy one and requires work to be done on all sides. "If companies have the same type of position and multiple people in it, we have to make sure pay scales aren't completely out of whack", she said. "One of the things that we are really wanting is for businesses to come on board, to support this issue because at the end of the day it is businesses who are paying the employees". "This accomplishment is the result of years of work and commitment".

"What's really a benefit to the company and the employer is actually the productivity, whether it be male of female", said Rep. Tracy Arnold (R) Alcorn, Prentiss.

It's #EqualPayDay and the nation is buzzing with calls to close the gender wage gap.

Miller said IN needs to offer employees protections from intentional and unintentional discrimination. While we have made significant strides, there is still much more we can do. While all women in MA are typically paid about $11,200 less than men, that difference is greater when looking at specific minorities.
