Subject: This anniversary highlights why inequality exists in America
January 29th marks the anniversary of the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of 2009; a reminder that a significant pay gap still exists between men and women in the United States.
Women at the median made 83 percent of the male median hourly wage of $18.35 in 2014, up from 63 percent in 1979. Though the wage gap has narrowed, 40 percent of that narrowing was because men’s wages fell.
Please join me in signing the petition to Congress urging them to adopt EPI’s Women’s Economic Agenda, which addresses the gender wage gap and raises wages of all workers:
