Equal Pay

The Ryan Republican budget fails to ensure equal pay for equal work for all women and their families. Women as a whole earn an average of 77 cents for every dollar earned by men. For women of color, that number can dip as low as 53 cents, translating into a loss of $18,650 for African-American women and $24,111 for Latina women in 2012.
