47 years Later and Still No Pay Equity
Posted by sherrysaunders on June 11, 2010
In a nationwide poll of registered voters commissioned by the Paycheck Fairness Act Coalition, of which BPW Foundation is a key leader, 84% said they supported “a new law that would provide women more tools to get fair pay in the workplace.” 84%! Participants were told that the “law will also make it harder for employers to justify paying different wages for the same work and ensure that businesses that break the law compensate women fairly” – precisely what the Paycheck Fairness Act would do.
So 47 years later there is still work to do to ensure women are paid fairly. Seems like it is taking a long time.
