Equal Pay Day (Un)Happy Hour tonight
Today is Equal Pay Day, which marks the day when women – a full three months later -- finally earn as much as men did in 2018. Women working full-time, year-round, still only earn 80 percent of what men make, and the number drops to 61 percent for African-American women and 53 percent for Latinas. If you think that’s outrageous, so do the folks at WILL Empower -- Women Innovating Labor Leadership – and they’re hosting an Equal Pay Day (Un)Happy Hour tonight from 6 to 8pm at Pizzeria Paradiso (see Calendar), where you can come network with others who are fighting for pay equity and worker justice. “Pizza is provided and there will be a cash bar. Please wear RED, because women are still in the red!”
