AAUW Applauds Paycheck Fairness Act Introduction in Congress

AAUW Applauds Paycheck Fairness Act Introduction in Congress
The Paycheck Fairness Act is sponsored by Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-CT) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA). The bill is bipartisan in the House of Representatives and co-sponsored by every Democrat in both the House and Senate. (A version of the bill was first introduced in 1997.) The Paycheck Fairness Act is also an important complement to the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of 2009, which ensures that ongoing pay discrimination at work can be challenged regardless of when the discrimination began. That act was signed into law 10 years ago on January 29, 2009.

In 2019, the idea that we still don’t have equal pay for equal work is nothing short of outrageous.AAUW urges the 116th Congress to take this important step towards pay equity with the swift passage of the bill.”

— Kim Churches, CEO, American Association of University Women

Simple Truth

The gender pay gap is the gap between what men and women are paid. Most commonly, it refers to the median annual pay of all women who work full time and year-round, compared to the pay of a similar cohort of men. Other estimates of the gender pay gap are based on weekly or hourly earnings, or are specific to a particular group of women.

U.S. Cities Reveal a Wide Range of Gender and Racial Pay Gaps

The gender pay gap is a real and consistent problem, which is all too apparent when we examine the data on the earnings of men and women. No matter how you break down the numbers—by state, by age, by education, or by occupation—the gap is substantial. And cities are not immune to this problem, as our new analysis shows.AAUW has analyzed the pay gap faced by women of different races and ethnicities in 25 of the largest U.S. metropolitan areas. The analysis revealed that there is a substantial gender pay gap in all 25 cities, with even larger gaps for black and Hispanic women.
