April 10 proclaimed as Equal Pay Day in Phoenix

Tuesday, Equal Pay Day, takes place around the beginning of every April each year to symbolize how women in the USA must work, on average, 15 months in order to earn the same amount of money as men do per year in the same jobs. In 2016, he also launched the Equal Pay Pledge, encouraging businesses to not only pledge to close the gap, but to agree to conduct regular reviews of their gender pay differences.

Women earn just over $45,000 while men earn a little over $51,000 on average. 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. Louisiana and Utah had the steepest gaps. The National Partnership for Women and Families released a report indicating that Latinas in New Mexico are paid 55 cents and Latinas in California are paid 43 cents for every dollar paid to white, non-Hispanic men.

White women earned 79 cents for every dollar earned by a white man, while black women earned 63 cents, according to the NCPE. One recent Georgetown Center on Education and the Workforce report found that women need an extra degree (such as a bachelor's degree to match a man's associate degree) to attain comparable earnings. Women are five times more likely than men to take a break from work to raise kids, and employees who leave the workforce for a year or more find that their pay upon returning is 7 percent less than a now employed person seeking the same job, according to PayScale's report. In sales, for example, women make only 62 cents for every dollar paid to men.

"When we start thinking about age, marital status, the region one lives in, that also affects a woman's earning power", she added.

For women of color, the gap is even wider. "The wage gap can not be explained by women's choices".

Liverpool-based Halewood Wines and Spirits, which produces Whitley Neill Gin and Pogues Irish Whiskey, saw a mean hourly rate for women as 2% lower than men's. There wasn't a single state that didn't face some degree of wage inequality between men and women.
