Even Celebs Understand: Ask for More on Equal Pay Day
Today 4/14 is Equal Pay Day.
This particular date symbolizes just how far into the year women must work to earn the same pay that men made for the same job in 2014. On average, women make 78 cents to every dollar a man makes, or in time terms: us ladies must work 4 months and 14 days after our salaried year to make as much as our male counterparts. Reese Witherspoon and Patricia Arquette gave rivetting speeches at the Oscars this year, urging us to eliminate the wage gap and ask for more. And they are not the only celebrities who feel this injustice. Even the star-studded industries are not immune to gender inequality when it comes to pay. Check out these celebrity’s stories on their wage gap experience.
Get heated, know your value, and #ask4more this #EqualPayDay.
