alt text On this day, the Equal Pay Today campaign will highlight the fact that the wage gap for Black women compared to non-Hispanic white men is 69 cents for full time, year-round workers. The wage gap widens to 66 cents when looking at all Black women earners (including full-time, part-time and part-year workers), as compared to all working non-Hispanic white men. These wage gaps are unacceptable. Black women continue to be underpaid, undervalued, and overrepresented in jobs that lack important workplace protections.

Join advocates across the country in this social media storm to urge support for the Paycheck Fairness Act and the Be HEARD Act to help secure equal pay and stronger workplace harassment protections. Please use #BlackWomensEqualPayDay and tag @EqualPay2dayOrg.

79% of Black women are breadwinners. However, workplace sexual harassment can lead to poor mental health, less hours worked, and more women leaving their jobs. On this #BlackWomensEqualPayDay, support Black women’s economic futures by urging Congress to introduce the #BeHEARDAct

On average, Black women working full-time are paid just 69 cents for every $1 paid to white men. This is not economic or racial justice. #BlackWomensEqualPayDay means we need pay equity. @npwf

Black women take out an average of $38,800 in loans to complete a bachelor’s degree, the highest of any race or gender. Eliminating the pay gap could allow Black women to pay off student loan debt within TWO YEARS. We need #equalpay NOW if Black women are going to have economic security @npwf #BlackWomensEqualPayDay

Black women take out an average of $38k in loans to complete a bachelor’s degree, the highest of any race or gender. Eliminating the pay gap could allow Black women to pay off student loan debt w/in TWO YEARS. We need #equalpay NOW! @npwf #BlackWomensEqualPayDay

When Black women are paid less than their white counterparts, it impacts their finances today & financial futures. An economy that supports Black women is an economy that supports us all. #BlackWomensEqualPayDay

The reason we have to commemorate #BlackWomensEqualPayDay is because “The Math Ain’t Mathing.” Read @NPWF’s recent post on the #WageGap in Hollywood. #BlackWomensEqualPayDay

More than 1/2 of Black women live in the 26 states w/ abortion bans, incl 2.7 million in low income. Dobbs continues to threaten their health & economic security. Add the #WageGap & financial security is even further out of reach #BlackWomensEqualPayDay

The #WageGap robs Black women of economic security. If the wage gap closed for just one year, Black women could afford 26 months of food, 23 months of child care, or 12 months of mortgage payments. #BlackWomensEqualPayDay

As @jocelyncfrye reminds us on #BlackWomensEqualPayDay, business as usual has never worked for Black women. The #WageGap continues to impact Black women’s economic security now and will continue if things don't change.

For low-income Black women especially, closing the #WageGap would give them more to work with to take care of themselves and their families. 66¢ for every dollar white men make isn't enough. #BlackWomensEqualPayDay
