Equal Pay Day marks the time in the year that women on average catch up to the 2018 earnings of men (however, there are still months to go before reaching parity for many women of color). Catch up on our blog posts about the issue of pay equity:
- What we're reading this Equal Pay Day
Are you underpaid? How does sexual orientation impact compensation? How do you ask for a promotion? We dive into these questions and more in this reading list.
- Fighting for equal pay in Washington State
How is YWCA working to balance the scales here in Washington state?
- Black Women Equal Pay Day
This year, it will take black women eight months into 2019 to finally catch up to the 2018 earnings of white men.
- Native Women Equal Day Day
Native women have to work an additional nine months into 2019 to match the 2018 earnings of white men.
- Latina Equal Pay Day
Latinas are almost a full year (11 months!) behind the earnings of white men.
