Wage discrimination still reality

Wage discrimination is still a very real problem in the United States. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, women who work full-time earn, on average, only 78 cents for every dollar men earn. The figures are even worse for women of color: Black women only earning 66 cents and Latinas 54 cents on the dollar. This wage gap not only impacts the economic security of women working today, it also affects women’s future economic security and therefore the economic stability of the whole family.

Historically, BPW Foundation has empowered women to advocate for themselves and their families on issues such as equal pay. The signing of the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act was a critical step, but the fight is not over. Lack of equity and access in the workplace continue to plague women and other under-represented groups.

According to a spokesperson for the BPW Foundation, "As we collaborate to rebuild the workforce and our economy, we need to ensure that the workplace is ‘ready’ for all workers and the way we work today and will in the future."

BPW Foundation urges employers, policymakers and working women to support and advocate for legislation and workplace policies that seek to create successful workplaces such as Ledbetter. Equal pay for equal work is mandatory for a competitive workforce; all employees should be valued in order to compete in a global marketplace.

Last year, the House of Representatives passed the Paycheck Fairness Act twice, which strengthens the Equal Pay Act and closes loopholes; it is time for the Senate to follow suit.

BPW Foundation supports workforce development programs and workplace policies that recognize the diverse needs of working women, communities and businesses. BPW Foundation is a 501 (c) (3) research and education organization.
