Thanks for playing Equal Pay Day
Trivia! We look forward to playing again next year!
Answer to Wednesday’s question: Over a
lifetime, women earn $700,000 less than men.
Equal Pay Day is
Tuesday, April 8, 2014. This date symbolizes how far into 2013 women had to
work in order to earn what men earned in 2012. Because women earn less, on
average, than men, they must work longer for the same amount of pay. The wage
gap is even greater for most women of color.
