(#Repost @easternregdst):Today is Black Women’s Equal Pay Day ✊🏾 August 7 at 2:00 - 3:00 pm ET, join the Social Media Storm using #BlackWomensEqualPay and #Demandmore.
We are challenging everyone who supports equal pay for Black women and all women to #DemandMore at work, as a consumer, and at the ballot box.
There are many contributors to the wage gap, including employment discrimination, gender and race-based bias, lack of pay transparency, an inadequate minimum wage and tipped minimum wage, unfair workplace practices, lack of affordable child care, lack of quality public education system, a dismantling of organized labor, and inadequate access to capital.
On this #BlackWomensEqualPay Day, in this critical year for our nation and at this pivotal moment for democracy, Black women nationwide are demanding more for their contributions, their dollar and their vote. They are demanding tangible solutions from their employers, from the business community, and from elected officials at the local, state and federal level for addressing each of the contributors to the gap. @equalpayday
