 #BlackWomensEqualPay Day

Would you like to work 19 months just to get paid the same paycheck your coworkers get in 12 months? That’s the case for black women in the United States, who are paid 63 cents for every dollar paid to white, non-Hispanic men.

Today is #BlackWomensEqualPay Day, the symbolic day when black women’s earnings “catch up” to white men’s earnings from the previous year. When 70 percent of black mothers serve as the primary or sole breadwinner in their family, every penny counts. 

We need tools to fight pay inequity. Tell your members of Congress to support strong, effective solutions to close the gender pay gap once and for all.
