April 14, 2015 is Pay Equity Day! Support Equal Pay for Women


A Message from President Donna: 


According to the National Committee on Pay Equality, in 2015, Equal Pay Day is celebrated on April 14th. How ironic is that? One day before Uncle Sam wants his cut of our money, we can finally know that we have worked long enough to have earned the same amount as a man earned during the entire previous year, relatively speaking. That's 77 cents to the dollar! It is up to us to follow legislation, contact our represen-tatives, and speak up within our work places to bring a more equitable climate for working people everywhere. Here's a link to the National Committee's website that explains what WE can do: http://pay-equity.org/index.html. 


If nothing else, Wear RED on Equal Pay Day to symbolize how far women and minorities are "in the red" with their pay! It is one easy way to show support to our collective cause (and we'll look stunning, too!)
