Women march for pay equity


At lunchtime today, hundreds of women will wear red and stomp down Lincoln Road in Miami Beach to make a statement for National Pay Equity Day. It's disappointing that this still is necessary. After all these years of progress, women are still “IN THE RED” when it comes to Equal Pay for Equal Work. On average, women working full-time year round earn approximately 25% LESS than their male counterparts.
Men, this affects you, too. Every dual-income household suffers when a woman makes less than a male for doing the same job. And when single woman make less, it taxes our social welfare system. THIS NEEDS TO CHANGE.
I salute the Miami Beach Commission on the Status of Women for organizing the march and drawing attention to this issue.
