National Equal Pay Day April 12, 2016
Maria Cantwell, D-WA
"Unfortunately, this story isn’t unique. Wage discrimination affects a wide range of professional fields, including realtors, educators, administrators, and even CEOs. For example, male surgeons earn 37 percent more per week than their female counterparts. In real terms, that female surgeon earns $756 less per week than her male colleagues, and this adds up. And this does not apply only to high-paying, male-dominated careers: Women are 94.6 percent of all secretaries and administrative assistants. Yet they still earn only 84 percent of what their male counterparts earn per week."
