Des Moines to participate in Equal Pay Day campaign


According to the National Women's Law Center (NWLC), today's wage gap in Missouri would cost a woman more than $400,000 over a 40-year career in comparison to a man.

Director of Workplace Policy for National Partnership.org, Sarah Fliesch-Flink said the statistics are plain for all to see.

Nationally, women who fold full-time, year-round jobs are paid 80 cents for every dollar paid to men. Louisiana ladies are paid just 68 cents on the dollar for what men are paid.

From April next year all voluntary, private and public sector employers with a headcount of more than 250 will be required to publish figures which show their mean and median gender pay gap.

She said observing Equal Pay Day is important because it gets people focused on the issue, bringing it to light. "The gaps are so large for Latina workers because they are disproportionately concentrated in lower paying occupations in the service and logistics sectors".

Equal Pay Day marks how far all women need to work into 2017 to earn what men were paid in 2016.

April 4th is a clear reminder, the wage gap still exists. "Even more for women of color".

However, this number is not true for all women. But in some fields, including engineering and information technology, women make substantially less than men, on average, one year after graduating college. The new regulations, which come into force Thursday, will affect roughly 9,000 firms employing more than 15 million people, nearly half the United Kingdom workforce.

Just a year ago, the US median income for women was just 80 percent of the median income for men, according to the American Association of University Women.

Emma Porteus said, "At the end of the day money speaks so if we're so behind in terms of what equal salary looks like then we'll be behind in progressing in so many other ways". It will also require them provide the proportion of male and female employees in different pay bands and information on bonus payments.
