Equal Pay Day
On Tuesday, March 31, 2020 Bank of America Plaza will change its color to red in support of Equal Pay Day originated by the National Committee on Pay Equity (NCPE). March 31st represents how far into the year women must work to earn what men earned the previous year. Equal Pay Day is a public awareness event that illustrates the gap between men's and women's wages. It was originally called "National Pay Inequity Awareness Day" and changed to Equal Pay Day in 1998. NCPE leadership decided years ago to select a Tuesday for this public awareness event to represent how far into the week women must work to earn what men earned in the previous week. Because women earn less, on average, than men, they must work longer for the same amount of pay. The gap is even greater for most women of color. NCPE is a coalition of women's and civil rights organizations; labor unions; religious, professional, legal and educational associations, commissions on women, state and local pay equity coalitions and individuals working to eliminate sex and race based wage discrimination and to achieve pay equity. NCPE's purpose is to close the wage gap that still exists between women, as well as people of color, and men. Learn More...
