#EqualPayDay 2013: No Cause for Celebration

Editor’s Note: This blog was written and submitted by Vision 2020 Oklahoma Delegate Pascale Lane.

April 9 is Equal Pay Day, the time when women earn in just over 15 months what men earned in the 12 months of 2012. Women earn less from the time they start in the workforce, and the difference increases over time. Over a lifetime, these injustices really add up.

Finally talk about this issue with everyone. We need to spread the word far and wide, because we never know who can make a difference.
