Making Every Day Equal Pay Day
National Equal Pay Day was created in 1996 to raise public awareness and illustrate the disparity between men's and women's wages for the same work. Twenty-five years later, more remains to be done to close the gap, and employers continue to grapple with policies and processes to ensure women and minorities are paid equitably. In honor of this year’s National Equal Pay Day, this episode explores the continuing need for pay equity reform and how many factors, including social pressure and government enforcement, continue to push the issue to the forefront of employers’ agendas.
