  • Why does the gender wage gap still exist

NCPE made a decision to have Equal Pay Day fall on a Tuesday in April of each year to symbolize how far into the year and workweek women have to work to match the salary of a man.

Another example is the tech company Salesforce, which past year stated it spent $3 million to study and close the wage gap between what men and women make, comparing people in similar roles and adjusting for location. The U.S. Census Bureau reports that women working full time, on average, earn 80 percent of what men earn.

This year, the occasion lands four months and 10 days into 2017 - even later than last year's April. 10 observance - marking how far into the new year women must work in order to catch up with what men were paid in the year before.

When you're a woman planning a family, timing what age you decide to have a baby will have far-reaching consequences on your future earnings. As the Economic Policy Institute's Elise Gould and Jessica Schieder note in a report, it's impossible to "mansplain away". That's especially true in IN, where the difference between men's and women's full-time earnings is the sixth largest in the nation.

On Equal Pay Day, women's advocates call attention to the gender pay gap - the phenomenon in which, year after year, women are found to be making less money than men.

The AAUW also announced a new commitment to train 10 million women through salary negotiations programs by 2022.

But America's women are losing out on $900 billion every year compared to their male counterparts, according to a report released this month by the Washington, D.C. -based National Partnership for Women and Families. "One day, the gender wage gap will impact your wives, your children, and your joint income". We also make most of the household decisions about the types and quantity of products that we buy for the home. For working-class women of color, that oppression is tripled. According to AAUW, this issue is widely attributed to the fact that Native people face "disproportionate rates of unemployment, poverty, and violence as well as limited access to education, and women tend to bear the brunt of discrimination".

Still, statistics have shown that transgender and gender nonconforming individuals can be four times as likely to earn annual salaries less than $10,000, their existing salaries drop precipitously once they begin to identify or transition at work.

In addition to the salary comparison tools, another way for young women in the market for employment to ensure that they are getting paid equally is to find a mentor.

What steps should young women entering the workforce for the first time take? "If our country is to thrive, we must root out bias in wages, reject outdated stereotypes and stop penalizing women for having children and caring for their families".

But her losses grow considerably larger when considering the lost retirement savings and wage growth.
