Equal Pay Day in USA in 2021

About Equal Pay Day

Equal Pay Day is an attempt to raise awareness about the raw wage gap, the figure that shows that women, on average, earn about 80 cents for every dollar men earn. The date moves earlier each year as the wage gap closes, as women’s average wages rise faster than men’s.

Equal Pay Day began in 1996 as a public awareness event to illustrate the gap between mens and womens wages.
