In 2010, why do women earn 77 cents for every dollar mean make?
And now, an NBC Bay Area Editorial
I'm Suzanne Shaw, NBC Bay Area Editorial Director
Women average just 77 cents for every dollar paid to men doing essentially the same jobs. It's worse for minorities and as women get older, the wage gap widens. We know gender discrimination is wrong, saying jobs dominated by women are less valuable, wrong again. It has to stop!
We urge you to tell you senators and representatives to support these bills and end the wage gap.
