60 years of the Equal Pay Act and we STILL don’t have pay equity

August 15, 2023
It’s been so hot lately, but today we’re heated for an entirely different reason. Today is Moms’ Equal Pay Day, marking the fact that moms – across race and ethnicity – must work until August 15th of 2023 to earn what dads made in 2022 alone. Of course, averages alone don’t tell the whole story because, due to structural racism, moms of color face much larger wage gaps when compared separately. It’s beyond frustrating that this year we celebrated the 60th anniversary of the Equal Pay Act becoming law, yet we STILL don’t have pay equity.

Toma acción por el pago justo para las mamás

August 15, 2023
Hoy es el Día de la Igualdad Salarial de las Mamás, que marca el hecho de que las mamás, de todas las razas y etnias, deben trabajar hasta el 15 de agosto de 2023 para ganar lo que ganaron los papás solo en 2022.Por supuesto, los promedios por sí solos no cuentan toda la historia porque, debido al racismo estructural, las madres de color enfrentan brechas salariales mucho mayores cuando se comparan por separado. Por ejemplo, las mamás latinas ganan solo 51 centavos en comparación de lo que gana el papá de raza blanca no hispano.
