This little infographic from Emily’s List is an excellent example of why pay equity is so important. House Republicans have voted down measures to ensure pay equity. I do not find this to be solely a women’s issue. In today’s economy, what man would want his partner to bring home LESS than those equally qualified who earn more?
From the infographic:
Female teachers make $549/week less than their male counterparts.
Female physicians, nurses and home health aides make $848/week less than their male counterparts.
Female accountants and auditors make $288/week less than their male counterparts.
Retail Saleswomen make $181/week less than their male counterparts.
