Gender pay gap in Northern Ireland 'must be addressed'

"The gender pay gap reporting provisions are likely to do more for pay parity in five years than equal pay legislation has done in 45 years". Among women across all races and ethnicities, the hourly earnings still fall behind those of men, and the pay disparity is far greater among women of color.

"Boston thrives when women and men have an equal playing field", Walsh said in a statement.

Black women earn 63 cents for every dollar a white, non-Hispanic man earns, meaning they will typically lose more than $840,000 over a 40-year career.

AT&T offering HBO with Unlimited Plus plan
AT&T previously announced that Unlimited Plus customers receive a $25 monthly credit they can use on any of its video outlets. Current HBO customers who also sign up for the wireless plan will see the expense for the channel eliminated.

Lauren Davenport, the owner of Symphony Media company in St. Petersburg, says whether you are a man or a woman, the pay at her business is always equal.

According to The Hill , "a 52-48 vote to change the rule is expected, with all Democrats and their Independent allies opposed". As The New York Times reported, it will forever change the way we confirm all future Supreme Court nominees .

"#EqualPayDay is a reminder that women deserve equal pay for equal work".

The goal of Boston's awarenessweek is to "acknowledge the gender wage gap and its consequences, while providing the training and tools to help Boston women advocate for themselves within the workforce", according the mayor's office. Equal Pay Day marks how long into the next year a woman has to work to earn as much money as a man made in the previous year, based on those averages. In the United Kingdom, the Telegraph posted 14 designs created by social media users to visualize the gender pay gap, such as the one below.

Women in male-dominated occupations are paid significantly less than similarly educated men in those occupations. "[What ] a man earns [by] December 31, it takes the woman until April 4 to catch up to what they made".
