April 8, 2014 was Equal Pay Day—the day marked each year that symbolizes when a woman working full time earned as much as a man working full time the previous year. It takes women almost 100 more days to make up the 23 cent wage gap. And it's even worse for women of color -- African American women are paid just 65 cents and Latinas are paid 54 cents for every dollar paid to men. At a time when women are the breadwinners of many families, but are nearly two thirds of minimum wage workers and 40% of employees have no access to paid family leave, families can’t afford this inequality and discrimination.
