Where to Shop, Eat, and Exercise on Equal Pay Day Today
12 local businesses have teamed up with Lean In DC to offer Equal Pay Day Deals.
These 23% discounts call attention to the fact that women still make 77 cents to a man’s dollar, and we encourage community members to take action towards ensuring women achieve equal pay for equal work. Today marks the point in the year when women’s wages finally catch up to men’s from the previous year meaning that because of the wage gap, women worked an average of 59 days out of the year for free in 2013.
