To the editor:
On Tuesday, April 14, thousands of women from across the United States will join in a national day of action against unfair pay called Equal Pay Day.
April is symbolic of the point into the Next Year that a woman must work in order to earn the wages paid to a man in the previous year. On a national level, women are paid only 78 cents for every dollar a man is paid, according to the U.S. Consus Bureau. So, because women earn less, we must work longer for the same pay.
