GOP state senator: Why I'm fighting for equal pay

It is always held in April on a Tuesday to symbolize how far into the year women need to work to make what men did in the previous year, as well as how far into the next work week they must work to earn what men earned the previous week.

It's not just progressive states like California taking the wage gap seriously, either - North Dakota passed a bill in 2015 strengthening employer salary reporting requirements.

The Department of Labor ignores, for example, that the average man working full-time spends two hours more each week on the job than does the average full-time working woman. On average, women in CT earn only 82 cents for every dollar a man in the same job makes, with the gap being worse for women of color. Similarly, that's the story for companies that pay women an average of 21 percent less than men, a point that Jet.com is driving home in honor of Equal Pay Day by literally cutting up the products it sells on its site.

The gender wage gap is the difference in earnings between women and men in the workplace. The reason for this is that on an all-inclusive scale, the female sex doesn't work the same amount of time in a given period as the male sex.

Consider limiting how you use current salary to establish starting pay.

Jeff Hardy In Rough Shape Before Sunday's WrestleMania 33 Event
The report came shortly after the nine-time WWE tag team champions publicly slammed TNA in a video that Matt released on YouTube. Matt and Jeff Hardy returned to WWE at WrestleMania 33 in Orlando this evening, to an absolutely enormous pop.

Altman says equitable pay is one of the most important issues the group can tackle. This is unacceptable, and unequal pay for equal work is morally and mathematically wrong.

The National Partnership for Women and Families put the 17 percent gap in Arizona earnings in perspective by saying closing it would allow the average woman worker in the state to afford almost a year of groceries, or eight months of rent, or 11 months of childcare, among other expenses.

It would be hard to argue against the idea that there shouldn't be a gender wage gap.

Noreen Farrell, director of anti-sex discrimination law firm Equal Rights Advocates, told NBC: "We have an executive order that essentially forces women to pay to keep companies in business that discriminate against them, with their own tax dollars".

N Chandrababu Naidu drops 5 ministers, inducts 11 new faces
MPs Kesineni Srinivas and Konakalla Narayana tried to pacify Bonda but the latter remained firm on his decision. Naidu sought the resignations of five ministers who have now been replaced at a cabinet meet on Saturday night.

In Virginia, women working full-time are paid an average of 78 cents for every dollar paid to men.

Kentucky ranked 16 out of 50 states and the District of Columbia in the pay disparity between men and women, the study said.

According to the Daily Beast, the top ten most remunerative majors (except pharmaceutical scientists) are dominated by men. Black women make 66 cents per dollar, while Hispanic women make 60 cents per dollar. Why else would they insist on exaggerating issues like the wage gap and misleading the public about what these statistics mean? I have fought for equal pay for all of us for years, and I won't give up now. That way it can't be that, "Oh, women and men are getting the same pay at the same level, but we're promoting the men faster than the women".

Personal financial advisers had the biggest gender wage gap past year, according to a report from IWPR.

Race also has a negative impact on pay.
