Tue 8:30 | Comparing Stubs: Equal Pay Day

"The gender-based wage gap results in staggering losses that make it harder for women, in MA and across the country, to pay for food and shelter, child care, college tuition, birth control and other healthcare", said Vicki Shabo, National Partnership vice president for workplace policies, in a statement. The disparity is a hot topic of discussion on this day (April 10), Equal Pay Day. (Tuesday was selected to represent how far into the next work week women must work to earn what men earned the previous week.) The date also is selected to avoid avoid religious holidays and other significant events. Women are five times more likely than men to take a break from work to raise kids, and employees who leave the workforce for a year or more find that their pay upon returning is 7 percent less than a now employed person seeking the same job, according to PayScale's report.

That leads to a yearly pay difference of more than $11,000 and a combined total loss for all women in the commonwealth of more than $23.4 billion each year.

Many are quick to point to gender discrimination in the workplace as the driver of the pay gap, but the data don't support that claim.

If you're undervaluing your accomplishments and falling victim to imposter syndrome (as more than a third of the study respondents said happens frequently to them), you may be asking for less than you are worth in the marketplace.

The image appears to be legitimate and it gives everyone a look at the phone's appearance before it is even announced by LG. The model will have a dual rear camera setup and the position of cameras will be vertically aligned in place of horizontal.

Madsen said Utah needs funding for academic studies to look at the causes of the wage gap here to help identify possible solutions. Thirty-seven percent of men think there is no pay difference by gender, compared to just 20 percent of women. The company reported in 2017 that women make up 57 percent of its staff.

While the oft-repeated "79 cents to a dollar" statistics will no doubt be quoted, it's important to remember the wage gap affects individuals and communities differently and varies according to race, ethnicity and gender identity and expression.

The analysis shows that large disparities exist between men's and women's salaries in each of these cities, with the widest gaps appearing to exist between Hispanic women and white men.

White women in America make about 80 cents for every white male's dollar, while Latina women make 54 cents, and black women make 63 cents, according to the American Association of University Women. This amounts to a combined total of almost $35.4 billion in unearned wages every year due to the gender-based gap in Pennsylvania. The reality was, I was probably giving her, and other women at the company, an unenviable portrait of what would be required to sustain the executive position.

Data from the Institute for Women's Policy Research show that the USA economy would grow by more than $512 billion if women received equal pay.

NATS revealed that its mean gender pay gap in the United Kingdom now stands at 19.8%.

Women work fewer hours than men. Nationally, women averaged $41,554, $10,086 less than men.

Erin Jemison, public policy director at YWCA Utah, said the high number of children in the state works against women's pay in another way. "We ask the administration to immediately stop blocking the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission from implementing an equal pay initiative aimed at identifying and helping root out pay discrimination".

"The Equal Pay Act should not be an impediment for employees seeking a brighter future and a higher salary at a new job", she wrote.

Women and men take on different roles in their families.
