Here's What Equal Pay Day Is All About

It took 3 extra months, but women finally catch up to a man's income for last year
Pay gap worsened for women under 40 over last two years, US study finds

Not all of the gender wage gap can be explained by occupational choice, however. Black women make just 67.7 cents to the dollar that white men make. It would take Hispanic women until 2248 to hit the same benchmark. California law now prohibits employers from paying female employees less than men for equal work; protects employees' right to discuss wages with co-workers; prohibits retaliation against employees who seek to enforce the law; and prohibits employers from justifying a pay difference exclusively on the grounds of prior salary. If current trends continue, the wage gap won't close until 2067.

"This isn't just a problem for people who make a lot of money". It's technically the 12th-smallest gender pay gap in the country - which somebody should consider putting on a postcard for women visiting from states like Louisiana and Utah. For women of color, that percentage is even higher.

Liverpool-based Halewood Wines and Spirits, which produces Whitley Neill Gin and Pogues Irish Whiskey, saw a mean hourly rate for women as 2% lower than men's. We're as (if not better) educated, and are more competitive than ever when it comes to work experience, but are paid an average of 20 percent less. Suffice it to say that women have to work for 15+ months to earn what men make in 12 months.

According to Crooms-Robinson changing corporate thinking is one of the keys to ensuring Equal Pay Day and the wage gape become things of the past.

It also allows for treble damages, rather than the typical double, to be paid for violations if discrimination can be proved.

The private listening session included lucky fans and her management. So I always say I don't want anybody sneak-dissing me. She added: "I don't really have the time for that".

Snow and rain cause bank holiday delays
Mostly cloudy conditions dominate throughout the day on Monday , with the chance of some patchy drizzle at times. Many roads are snow covered or snow and ice covered with reduced visibilities due to blowing and drifting snow.

Several shot at YouTube HQ in California
Employee Vadim Lavrusik followed up his original tweet , revealing employees were safely evacuated and were outside the building. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives also said it responded to the shooting at YouTube's suburban campus.

"Unfortunately, I've learned that pay discrimination is alive and well", Lord said. Some companies are fixing pay inequities among their employees. We also commend Sen.

So-called pink collar jobs in fields that are female dominant-such as nursing, childcare, social work, and human resources, among others-tend to command lower salaries, despite how valuable they are to our society. Yet the fact remains: Women still don't earn as much as men in the workforce. A person's gender should not be a determining factor in their salary. "And how do we make that adjustment for everyone?" Because of this, it takes some women until April of a following year to match the salary of the opposite sex.

In a statement, National Partnership president Debra Ness said claims that wage disparity might be based entirely on women's choices are unfounded.

Robinson admits not every situation is the same, and hard negotiation tactics don't always guarantee you'll get what you ask for.

Equal Pay Day is Tuesday, April 10.
