Fact Sheets


May 5 is Mother’s Equal Pay Day, which marks how far into the year mothers must work to catch up to what fathers made last year alone. Among full-time, year-round workers, mothers are typically paid only 75 cents for every dollar paid to fathers. Even before a global health crisis with devastating economic consequences, the pay gap for mothers resulted in monthly losses of $1,275 and annual losses of $15,300, meaning mothers had to work more than 16 months to make as much as fathers were paid in 12.
