Equal Pay Day is April 4 and is the symbolic day when women’s earnings catch up to men’s earning from the previous year.
On average women make 80 cents for every $1 men make in South Carolina. The gap is even worse for women of color.
Women actually graduate to a pay deficit as female college graduates are paid less even with identical qualifications.
We have work to do so contact your legislators and ask them to support equal pay for equal work.
