Equal Pay Day Gender Gap

March 12 is Equal Pay Day in the U.S., but things are still somewhat off-balance.

  • According to the latest research from the Census Bureau, women working full-time year-round earn 84 cents for every dollar a man earns. 
  • For seasonal and part-time workers, that amount lowers to 78 cents.
  • And when it comes to education, women earn 71 cents for every dollar an equally educated man makes.
  • For women of color, the gap appears to be even larger.
  • "Women's labor force participation is the highest it has been in decades, and the gender pay gap is the narrowest it has ever been on record. Yet, despite this progress, the fight for equal pay continues," President Joe Biden said in a statement on Monday.
