7 Ways To Protest On Equal Pay Day If You’re Sick Of Working More To Earn Less Than Men
The Equal Pay Today campaign has organized a petition delivery event in Washington, D.C. on Equal Pay Day. The petition is a seeking a reinstatement of an Obama-era equal pay policy mandating that companies with over 100 employees report how much they pay their employees by race, gender, and ethnicity. The Trump administration eliminated this rule in August 2017. The campaign has collected thousands of signatures on a petition seeking to re-instate this rule and plans to deliver it to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) beginning at 9 a.m. EST. If you are in Washington, D.C. and wish to join the event, you can find further information on the event’s Facebook page. If you are not in D.C., you can still participate in the aforementioned petition initiative by signing the equal pay data collection petition. You can easily add your name to the petition online via the National Women’s Law Center‘s website.
