Could you use an extra $434,000?

Equal pay for equal work would create substantial economic gains for women and their families. A new report found that women lose approximately $434,000, on average, over a 40-year period because of the gender wage gap (the annual difference in median wages between men and women who are employed full-time and it widens over time).

Send a message to US Chamber of Commerce that says Equal Pay for Equal Work Now.

You may not be the activist type, but think about your daughters, nieces and godchildren. Should they be penalized for their gender?
