The Gender Wage Gap in OH is More Than a 'Paycheck Problem'

Guest Opinion: The effect of the wage gap in Iowa

On average, black women are paid 63 percent of what white men are. It is the approximate day the typical woman must work into the new year to earn what the typical man made at the end of the previous year.

Over half a century after the United States passed the Equal Pay Act, American women still face a substantial gender wage gap across the spectrum. And the sluggish rate at which the gap is narrowing is also troubling, she added. "Sixty-one percent of Americans are less likely to buy a product from a company that doesn't pay women fairly, and nearly a third will not apply to a company with a gender pay discrepancy". Black women make just 67.7 cents to the dollar that white men make. Nor can they require that a candidate's prior hourly wages, annual salary, benefits or other compensation "satisfy minimum or maximum criteria". "For Hispanic women, it will come November 1". Various leading women's groups, including the AAUW, National Women's Law Center, the National Partnership for Women & Families, and Equal Pay Today have called for congressional and administrative action concerning pay equity.

The idea is to bring legislative change to close the wage gap.

Nevertheless, Equal Pay Day allows an opportunity for all women to unite as a powerful working force and demand their rightful earnings in the industry. Personal financial advisers show the largest disparity, with women's median weekly earnings at 59 percent that of men's, according to an analysis by the Institute for Women's Policy Research.

This impacts the children of these women, too. However, the pay gap increases as women and men gain more experience as women with seven to 10 years of experience are offered 93% of what men are offered, while women with 13 to 14 years of experience receive 92% of what men are paid for the same job with the same company. On average, these companies offer women 4% less than men for the same role, with some offering women up to 45% less. At 61%, Asian women from this cohort had the highest percentage of debt paid off among women.

Celebrities such as Catt Sadler from ENews spoke out about the pay difference between her and her co-anchor Jason Kennedy, who have both been working on the channel for the same amount of years causing Sadler to eventually quit her job on the popular network.

Researchers ran a set of gender pay simulations - using "Joe" and "Jane" to signify a male and female character, respectively - and analyzed their potential life outcomes.

It's about supporting the families who depend on women every day.

Likewise, older women fall behind when they leave jobs to care for aging parents, she said.
