Today Marks Equal Pay Day For Women



Today marks Equal Pay Day for women working in the United States.

Equal Pay Day is the approximate day the typical woman must work into the new year to make what the typical man made at the end of the previous year.

Based on American Community Survey (ACS) Census data, the 2018 wage gap between women and men is 80 cents. The gap is far wider for women of color as compared to White, non-Hispanic men and moms as compared to dads.

Equal Pay Day for all women should be Dec. 31, but it is not. The average woman must work into April of the next year to earn what the average man earned the previous year.
