Women's Monthly Meeting / National Equal Pay Day says
In recognition of Tuesday, April 14th’s National Equal Pay Day, two representatives from the U.S. Department of Labor Women’s Bureau will facilitate a conversation about equal pay, answer your questions and provide information on steps you can take to be proactive in receiving equal pay for equal work.

When the Equal Pay Act was signed into law by President Kennedy in 1963, women were earning an average of 59 cents on the dollar compared to men. While women hold nearly half of today's jobs and are growing number of breadwinners in their families, women are still experiencing a gap in pay compared to men's wages for similar work. Today, women earn about 78 cents on the dollar compared to men — a gap that results in hundreds of thousands of dollars in lost wages. The pay gap is even greater for African-American and Latina women.
