How have you or someone you know been affected by the gender pay equity gap in Michigan?

Thank You!

Thank you for joining the fight for gender pay equity in Michigan. This discrimination has gone on too long and hurts individual professional women and the working families who depend on their income. We have been fighting this battle in the Legislature for too long, and it’s time for the Male Majority in Lansing to take notice of the impact this disparity is really having on our citizens and our economy and finally act to end the gender pay equity gap.

Please share this on social media to help spread the word and get more citizens involved in setting the priorities for the Legislature in the coming year.

Despite all we have done to fight for equality in Michigan, women in our state are still being paid significantly less than men—currently only making 77.1 cents for every dollar men make. That amounts to an annual wage gap of around $11,000. This disparity is underscored on April 14, 2015, which is Equal Pay Day in Michigan. This day marks how long into the next year women have to work to earn an equal amount to what their male counterparts made in the previous year. Every legislative session, we have introduced bills to address the gender pay equity gap in Michigan, and we will continue to do so. From legislation to ban gender-based wage discrimination outright and require employers to make their wage information available to all employees to bills to establish a pay equity commission to address the issue, we are working to end the gender pay equity gap. But if we’re going to succeed, we need Michigan women and the people who support them to speak out.
