November 1. 2018
Latina Heat Entertainment covered the leadership of Equal Rights Advocates’ initiative Equal Pay Today! at the 3rd Annual Latina Equal Pay Day Summit. Equal Pay Today! co-led the national Latina Equal Pay Day campaign and the summit alongside The Labor Council for Latin American Advancement (LCLAA), IUPAT District Council 77, 9 to 5, Georgia Latino Alliance for Human Rights, Justice for Migrant Women, and other allies.
Latina Equal Pay Day is more than just the approximate day Latina pay reaches that of White non-Hispanic men from the previous year, it’s the day we highlight the gap between America’s promise and its reality,' shares Joi Chaney, Director of Equal Pay Today! and Senior Policy Counsel at Equal Rights Advocates. 'No one is seeking unfair advantage or for employers or even the government to solve for the worlds inequity, but we are seeking lowered barriers to opportunity for all women, beginning with women of color who face a wider wage gap.'
