Acknowledging Equal Pay Day at GEL

by | Mar 20, 2024 | Others

On March 12, 2024, we honored Equal Pay Day, a day selected each year to symbolize how far into the next year women must work to earn what men earned the previous year.  

On June 10, 1963, President John F. Kennedy signed the Equal Pay Act into law. This landmark legislation required that all individuals in the same workplace be given equal pay for equal work, regardless of their gender. It’s been 61 years since this law took effect, yet women from every corner of the country still bear the brunt of the gender wage gap – especially women of color.  According to an analysis by Pew Research Center, women earned an average of 82 cents for every dollar earned by men in 2022. 

Since 2005, Gilbert Employment Law has handled all types of gender-related workplace disputes and has advocated on behalf of employees at every organizational level nationwide. We believe that every individual, regardless of their gender, deserves a workplace free from discrimination. That’s why we remain steadfast in our fight for pay parity and a more just, equitable workplace for all.
