Supermajority News: It’s Equal Pay Day. Coronavirus Makes The Gender Wage Gap Even Worse.
March 31. 2020
ERA attorney and Director of the national Equal Pay Today campaign Shannon Williams spoke with Supermajority News about Women’s Equal Pay Day:
For low-paid women—many of whom are women of color— a lifetime of gender and racial pay discrimination adds up. If fair pay were a reality, Latinas would have an extra $28,000 from last year to each fall back on right now. Women are disproportionately on the frontlines of this pandemic as healthcare workers, food service workers, caregivers, and grocery store cashiers. They deserve fair pay. Their labor is keeping our nation and economy running.
