Yeah, you read that correctly.
The average woman in the US has to work an extra 4 months to equal what a man doing the same job earns.
If that woman is a mother, it takes even longer. A single mother, even longer than that. And women of color? They're even further behind.
And with the same resume and qualifications, a mother is 78% less likely to be hired than a non-mother.
Call or write your congressperson and tell them to support the Paycheck Fairness Act.
