The UFCW will highlight pay disparities during Women’s Equal Pay Day on Tuesday, March 15.
The month of March symbolizes how far into the year women must work to earn what men earned in 2021. Women are paid only 83 cents for every dollar a man is paid on a national average. Because women earn less, on average, than men, they must work longer for the same amount of pay. The wage gap is even greater for most women of color.
The UFCW is a member of the board of directors of the National Committee on Pay Equity, which is calling on supporters to wear red on March 15 to symbolize how far women and minorities are “in the red” with their pay. The UFCW will also advocate fair pay for women on social media that day.
Please join us in supporting equal pay for equal work on March 15!
