Or why the Lilly Ledbetter Pay Act wasn’t enough, four years later:
— Women make just 77 cents for every $1 made by men.
— For African-American, Latina women, it’s much worse: They earn just 70 cents for every dollar paid to men and 64 cents for every dollar paid to white, non-Hispanic men.
– The amount a woman loses to the pay gap could feed a family of four for 37 years.
– The pay gap starts early.
– The wage gap grows over a woman’s career, leading to more than $430,000 in lost wages for an individual woman.
– A woman’s pay, on average, stops growing when she turns 39.
Maybe 23 cents doesn’t sound like a lot to someone with a Swiss bank account.
