- Corporate Voices joins U.S. Reps. Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Ted Deutch for Equal Pay Day Discussion with Florida Employers
FORT LAUDERDALE, FL – April 9, 2013 – This year marks 50 years since President John F. Kennedy signed the Equal Pay Act of 1963 and yet today, women still earn 77 cents for every dollar earned by a man.
Tuesday, April 9 is National Equal Pay Day, representing the date in the current year through which women must work to match what men earned in the previous year. It reminds us of the work still ahead in order to achieve equity and an America where everyone gets an equal day's pay for an equal day's work.
