Video: Muoio on Equal Pay Day 2017

Cites Efforts by Democrats to End Gender Pay Inequity

Assemblywoman Elizabeth Maher Muoio (D-Mercer/Hunterdon) discusses Equal Pay Day 2017 and the importance of finally ending gender pay inequity.

Equal Pay Day was started by the National Committee on Pay Equity in 1996 to highlight the gap between men and women’s wages. It’s held every April to symbolize how far into the year women need to work to make what men did in the previous year, and it’s always on a Tuesday to represent how far into the next work week women must labor to earn what men earned the previous week.
