|Send A Letter To The Editor About Equal Pay Day||
|Tuesday, April 25 is Equal Pay Day. To match men’s earnings for 2005, women have to work from January 2005 to April 2006â€”an extra four months. Equal Pay Day takes place each year on a Tuesday in April, symbolizing the point in the next week and year to which a woman must work to achieve pay equity. Her male counterpart must work five days a week for twelve months, whereas she will work seven days a week for sixteen months to earn equivalent wages.Take Action!
