equal payDear Sisters and Brothers,

Ever get change from a store then realize when you get home that you’ve been short-changed?

Well, if you’re a woman, that happens every day.

In 1963, the Equal Pay Act was signed into law. Yet 50+ years later, women are still paid 77 cents on the dollar compared to men. And for women of color? That pay gap is even worse – as low as 55 cents to the dollar!

Six years after Congress passed the Fair Pay Act, the pay gap barely shrank.

If you’re a woman, just how much money are you losing every paycheck, month, year? If you’re a man, how much does your mom, spouse, girlfriend, sister, daughter, friend lose? Try out our fair pay calculator and the number may surprise you.

In solidarity,

Tracey Conaty
