Too many times lately I've heard from working women, "Pay equity, that's not an issue for me. It couldn't happen at my workplace." Do they know that pay equity is not an issue at their workplace? Do they have information to back up their statement? The answer to both of these questions is no.
Unfortunately, facts and figures show that pay inequity between men and women does exist. It starts as early as the first year out of college and continues. A research report, Behind the Pay Gap, was put out by the American Association of University Women Educational Foundation in April of this year. The report states that one year out of college, women working full time, earn less than their male colleagues. The pay gap continues to widen as the years go on. Don't let this happen to you. Become informed.
