April 10 proclaimed as Equal Pay Day in Phoenix

Data from the Institute for Women's Policy Research show that the USA economy would grow by more than $512 billion if women received equal pay. This is a reminder that "leaning in" and simply "empowering women" will not fix the gender pay gap. According to the website for the effort, women earn about 80 cents when compared to men. If it were closed, on average, a woman working full time in California would be able to afford 39 more weeks of food for her family, almost three more months of mortgage and utilities payments, more than one additional semester of tuition and fees for a four-year public university, the full cost of tuition and fees for a two-year community college, more than four months of rent or more than 7.5 additional months of child care each year. Even though this is a huge difference in California within pay, the state is still considered one of the top three most equal paid states alongside NY, where Latina and Black Women are paid $21-27 thousand less than men.

F&C Asset Management, which is owned by the Bank of Montreal, reported a wage gap of 34 per cent and an 82 per cent gap in bonuses paid.

Knowing what coworkers earn would make getting equal pay easier and prevent employer retaliation. According to Voice of America, the wage gap is slightly worse this year than last year.

Experts expect the gender pay gap to close by 2059, based on the rate it narrowed between 1960 and 2016.
