Equal Pay Day Rally at State Capitol Tuesday

Maternity leave varies widely across universities

It represents how far into the year women must work in order to earn what men earned the year before.

An exterior view of Mingo Kitchen and Lounge is seen April 3, 2015. According to the U.S Census Bureau, if Latina Women were paid equally as men, they could afford four more years of childcare, two and a half years of rent, or 4.3 years at a four-year public university. Compare that to women with seven to 10 years of experience, who are offered, on average, 93% of what men are offered. "So, in 55 years, it's only closed by 18 cents", she said. She had worked her way up from working the phones to supervising employees.

Growing movements to raise the pay of care workers, and teacher strikes in West Virginia and Oklahoma, are forcing society to rethink the value of the jobs women tend to do, she said.

When she approached her boss about the disparity, "they gave me excuses, like they were waiting for my review". They are also the years where many couples decide to have children.

In D.C., equal pay advocates met at the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, as equal pay advocacy organizations deliver thousands of petitions, calling for "immediate and concrete steps to jumpstart the equal pay data collection process". And she learned a life lesson. "And so it did affect me because of course I always had to have a second job", Radler said. If you're a black woman, you're probably missing out on a little over $22,300 a year.

Black Panther to get historic screening in Saudi Arabia
Though the thought of comparing Wakanda to Saudi Arabia may be unpleasant to us, Saudis will see parallels. The film is distributed by Middle Eastern distribution partner Italia Films in partnership with Disney .

The most recent annual government data show that women who work full-time, year-round still earn 80 cents for every dollar men earn, a level that has hardly budged over the past decade after rising from about 60 cents in 1980.

Senn says many women would probably be shocked to realize the kind of pay gaps that exist today. White non-Hispanic women are typically paid 79 cents, black women 63 cents and Latinas 54 cents for every dollar paid to white, non-Hispanic men, the partnership said. Their rates of food insecurity outpace single men with children (21.7 percent) and the national average of food insecure families (12.3 percent) multiple times over.

The Equal Pay Day rally is just part of the efforts being made in NY to achieve pay parity. And for Tuesday, women get specially-priced drinks. The graphs showed women in Iowa are making 77% less than men. Consider blind screening of resumes (removing names or other gender identifiers from resumes) when selecting applicants for interviews, and identify where you should focus your efforts to improve gender balance in the hiring pipeline. If there is a discrepancy, you can implement the Rooney Rule: For every manager position you have open to fill, consider at least one woman and one underrepresented minority in your pool of candidates.

Some analysts say the numbers advocacy groups are using are misleading.
