See What Your State Is Doing to Close the Gender Wage Gap

According to the National Pay Equity Committee, Equal Pay Day - the feminist-created holiday meant to signify how far into the year women have to work to make up for last year's wage gap - falls on April 4 this year.

Overall, the gender pay gap was not as wide in Kentucky as in many other states and the nation, the report said. Guest speakers were on hand to discuss just how far women have come in recent years, but how there is still more work that needs to be done.

Nationally, women make about 80 cents for every dollar men make. We don't. Women make up 51 percent of the population in West Virginia and we're not going to let them forget that. "To say that Republicans don't care about equal pay, that's just ludicrous that anybody even says that", Fischer said. Despite Ivanka's inclusion of women's equality in the workplace as a key message of her platform, the Trump administration has not actually adopted any of her pledges.

The Jane the Virgin star partnered with Luna Bar for Women's Equal Pay Day to support her fellow women, as she was raised to do.

As we talk about Equal Pay Day and the gender pay gap, it's important to keep in mind both the empirical facts and where people are coming from.

United States asks Hawaii judge to clarify ruling on Trump travel ban
The Maryland plaintiffs also argued the ban illegally reduces the number of refugees authorized to enter the US this year. Trump says the measure is necessary for national security to protect the country from "terrorist attacks".

Still, women in engineering make 82 cents for every $1 men make in Onondaga County. According to NBC News, the Fair Pay order had two rules that directly impacted women in the workplace: "paycheck transparency and a ban on forced arbitration clauses for sexual harassment, sexual assault, or discrimination claims".

Those other benefits were the focus of hearing last week by the Working Group on Women in the 21st Century Workforce, a group of GOP lawmakers formed previous year as a way to understand the inequality issues that face women on the job. If women get paid 20 percent less, here's a 20 percent discount to mark that day.

Providing financial security for women is a major reason that DeLauro sponsored the Paycheck Fairness Act. The gap is also narrower than the national average in New Hampshire, New York, Connecticut, and New Jersey. It prohibits companies from asking perspective employees their current or past salary history, an effort to prevent pay discrimination from following a woman throughout her career.

Of course, there was no way to prevent him from starting the show one evening with, "Good evening, this is Your Name with the 6 o'clock news". Learn more at leanin.org/equalpay. And when a researcher performed an experiment in which women could negotiate on behalf of a friend, they won salaries equal to those of men, but won $7,000 less when negotiating on their own behalf.

"It's outrageous that we're still debating equal pay for equal work". "The estimates for when the gender gap will close keep extending and now it's in the next century, so we'll see". If we don't step up, it will be another penny next year, another penny the following year, and yet another penny.
