EQUAL PAY DAY 2018
Equal Pay Day -- April 10, 2018 -- is the approximate date the typical woman must work to make what the typical man made at the end of 2017. This year, in honor of silence breakers everywhere and in the aftermath of the Trump Administration's regressive decision to block pay data collection, the Equal Pay Coalition -- women's rights, civil rights, and labor rights advocates -- is using this year's Equal Pay Day to shine a light on efforts to level the playing field between employees and employers by focusing on pay transparency.

On Tuesday, April 10th, join us in calling for:
  • EEOC pay data collection;
  • Passage of the federal Paycheck Fairness Act and local/state bills that close the gender wage gap; and
  • High road employers who post salary ranges, limit the use of prior salary, conduct pay audits, and protect employees who discuss pay at work.
