Equal Pay Day Issues Briefing
Tue, April 12, 2016, 9:00 AM – 1:30 PM EDT
Equal Pay Day is April 12, 2016. At 9:00am, there will be an issues briefing, followed by a rally at 12:30 pm on the Capitol steps in Lansing, MI. The issues briefing requires registration, due April 5, 2016, but the rally is open to the public.
The Michigan Equal Pay Day Coalition invites the public to recognize Equal Pay Day, a national day of recognition that, even after more than 52 years of federal law banning sex-based wage discrimination, there is still a significant pay gap between women’s and men’s wages. The Michigan Equal Pay Day event will occur on the Capitol steps in Lansing. Similar events are occurring across the nation.
Equal Pay Day symbolizes how far into the year women must work to earn what men earned the previous year. Tuesday is the day of the week on which women’s wages catch up to men’s wages from the previous week. Visit the MI Equal Pay Coalition webpage to learn more: https://miequalpay.wordpress.com/
