Equal Pay Day marks the symbolic day when the average woman must work to earn what men earned in the previous year.
The National Committee on Pay Equity (NCPR) began Equal Pay Day in 1996 as a public awareness event to illustrate the gap between men’s and women’s wages.
LCC invites the entire LCC community and the Greater Lansing area to join us for a spirited discussion on how to end wage inequity.
