Starting at 5pm
1400 SE Morrison Street
We are hosting an (Un)Happy Hour on Equal Pay Day because we’re, well, unhappy about unequal pay for women.
In 2015, like every year, it takes women many months of extra work to catch up to what men earned the year before.
And while we gather on April 14th, it is important to dive deeper into the data and see how different women are affected by the wage gap:
* African-American women earn just $0.64.
* Latinas earn a mere $0.55.
* Mothers, when compared to fathers, earn $0.60
WHICH. IS. APPALLING.
But the good news is that there’s real forward motion to close the gender wage gap here in Oregon, with several bills pending in Salem that will contribute, like: paid sick time, pay transparency, more $ for childcare subsidies, and more.
No need to RSVP, just swing by. We’ll be glad to see you!
Oh! And you’ll get a 21% discount if you are a woman (cis or trans) because, well, your reduced earnings mean reduced buying power, right?
Looking forward to seeing you on the 14th!
