Based Beauty Company Joins Effort to Fight Gender Wage Gap

The lower lifetime earnings make it harder to pay back student debt, buy a home or support a family, putting women - 15 million of whom are heads of households - at higher risk of financial insecurity, Shabo said. One out of every five women in Colorado is Latina, and they still only make 53.5 cents on the dollar compared to the highest earners, white males. The cents-on-the-dollar gap is largest in Louisiana and Utah, followed closely by West Virginia and Montana - and smallest in New York, California and Florida. California law now prohibits employers from paying female employees less than men for equal work; protects employees' right to discuss wages with co-workers; prohibits retaliation against employees who seek to enforce the law; and prohibits employers from justifying a pay difference exclusively on the grounds of prior salary.

Of course, Equal Pay Day is part of the narrative that women face rampant discrimination in the workplace and in turn, positions government action as the solution.

Experts expect the gender pay gap to close by 2059, based on the rate it narrowed between 1960 and 2016. In honor of Equal Pay Day past year, Vogue produced a list of red ensembles - all of which were straight off the runway, but, nonetheless, still in the spirit of the movement. Full-time working Latinx women in the state make $22,816 less than the average white, non-Hispanic man.

Similar proposed legislation was vetoed by former Gov. Chris Christie, who said existing safeguards protected against unequal pay for the same work.

The narrowing of the gap has slowed substantially in recent years - in fact, at the current pace the wage gap won't be closed until the year 2058. -- Today, on average, a woman earns 80.5 cents for every dollar a man earns, and women's median annual earnings are $10,086 less than men's, according to data from the US Census Bureau.

The issue is even greater with Black women and other women of color.

University of MA sociology professor Michelle Budig found women's earnings slip 4 percent for each child they have.

"I can tell you we keep track of our hours". "This suggests that the disruption to the early career of women who have children in their late 20s and early 30s is more harmful than either having a child before the career is really started or having it later, when the woman is established in her career", the researchers write in the paper. However, she says putting pressure on businesses and business owners is necessary for change.
