National Day of Action on Equal Pay Day

Women don’t choose to earn less, but a significant wage gap exists, especially for women of color. Equal Pay Day, falling on April 10, 2018, recognizes how far into 2018 women must work to earn what men earned in 2017 alone.

Throughout the year, 9to5 will be producing a series of short video stories about the issue of equal pay.  We’re putting real women’s faces and voices to the issue of equal pay for Asian American, Black, Latina and Native American women.
