Equal Pay

Below is a compilation of our research on equal pay, which refers to the discrepancies in men’s and women’s salaries. While women have made huge strides in the equal pay fight, it’s no secret or surprise that, on average, they still earn less than their male counterparts. Research shows that the gender pay gap is an issue that not only affects women, but children as well since the majority of single parents are women. Included in our research is a fact sheet on the gender pay gap, information on Equal Pay Day and an analysis and examination on the gender pay gap among college graduates.
