Equal Pay Day 2021

Posted by B&F Contributor | Mar 23, 2021

How many extra days past year-end does it take a woman to earn what a man did in just 12 months? For the previous year, it was an additional 83 days. Equal Pay Day, the day set aside to raise awareness about the gender pay gap, falls on March 24, 2021. It's been 24 years since this day was originated and the average woman still only makes $0.82 for every dollar a man is paid. Employment laws require men and women to be paid equally for substantially equivalent jobs in the same workplace, yet it's taking the average woman almost three extra months to make the same as a man.
