Clock starts ticking for jewellery retailers to publish gender pay gap data

Jeannie Matthews | 11 April, 2017, 00:03

Equal Pay day is held every April to symbolize how far into the year women need to work to make what men made in the previous year.

Health care support occupations have the closest thing to equal pay, with women only making.3% less than men. As the study shows, the states with the largest pay gaps for Black women are MS and Louisiana.

Espaillat: "Today is an opportunity to bring awareness to the national pay gap that affects women across the country".

U.S. Rep. Rosa DeLauro speaking in April 2014 during a news conference in Washington, D.C.to mark Equal Pay Day.

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

On average, women are losing more than $840 billion each year due to the wage gap, the study points out.

Palm Sunday: 36 killed in Egyptian churches
George Church during its Palm Sunday service, killing at least 27 people and injuring at least 78, the Ministry of Health said. While the Copts have stood steadfast alongside the government, an increase in attacks on Christians has tested that support.

The wage gap is not a "women's issue" - it's one of fundamental fairness. With that in mind, we dug into the National Women's Law Center state-by-state map that shows what women earn compared to white men across the United States.

In Scotland, the gender pay gap is lower at 5.6 per cent. Now, women earn 80-percent. Sen.

Longtime advocate for equal pay, Jennifer Pellow, says she'd like to see more done by lawmakers to end the wage gap.

Equal pay day for women of color comes much later in the year, with the most recent numbers for black women at 64-cents on the dollar and Hispanic women being 54-cents on the dollar.

Ivanka Trump's tweet linked to a USA Today article headlined, "The pay gap could vanish for all women - sometime in the 23rd century". However, while it is true - according to the US census - that white and Asian women are more likely to hold college degrees than black and Latina women, it's important to note that the wage gap between these demographics persists even when women with equally advanced educations are compared to women from other race groups. Based on the rate that wages changed for women from 1960 to 2015, women are expected to reach pay equity in 2059, the AAUW reported.
