Equal Pay Day 2018: What you need to know

Maternity leave varies widely across universities

This year, that date is April 10.

Right now, women in NY make 89 cents for every dollar men make in similar jobs.

But of course, in America, when you speak in averages, you stand to leave a large chunk of the population out. It's the symbolic day that represents the day up to which women have to work in 2018, to make up for the pay their male counterparts earned in 2017.

It takes women more than 15 months to earn what men earn in 12 - but pay inequality is not the only discrepancy IL women face in the workplace.

Louisiana residents believe there is significant discrimination against women and that lawmakers should continue making changes for workplace equality, according to a survey published by the Reilly Center for Media and Public Affairs at Louisiana State University.

Right now, American women must do 30% more work than men to earn their fair share of pay. However, some ethnic subgroups of Asian women earn much less.

This gendered concentration is often referred to by sociologists and economists asoccupational segregation. As a matter of fact, AAUW recognizes this disparity by recognizing different days for each ethnic group. In reality, multiple factors outside of individual choice influence occupational segregation. The Act amends the New Jersey Law against Discrimination. Institutions and work structures that perpetuate these the same systems, such as reliance on previous salaries to negotiate pay rates, keep the wage gap alive.

Wage setting refers to how society decides the worth of an occupation. "Sometimes it's just from the antiquated attitudes about women", Harris says.

Median wages of MS women who are mothers fall below the overall median, earning $0.71 on the dollar compared to fathers.

Willie Jones owns Dependable Source Corp., encompassing transportation and home health care. These jobs typically pay less than $10.50 an hour and require no formal education. Despite there being some progress in the last several decades, the fight is far from over-especially for women of color who are still substantially behind their white counterparts. In 2017, women were 21% more likely to achieve top performer status than men, compared to 12% more likely in 2015.

By law every company in the United Kingdom with more than 250 employees was obligated to publish annual figures relating to gender pay gap by midnight on 4 April. We're as (if not better) educated, and are more competitive than ever when it comes to work experience, but are paid an average of 20 percent less.

Gov. Phil Murphy tweeted Tuesday that he will sign equal pay legislation on April 24. That's just common sense - and it's something we should all agree on.

Toni Van Pelt with the National Organization for Women explains that pay inequality impacts women in ways well beyond a pay check.
