April 4 is Equal Pay Day, the day that marks how long women, on average, have to work into 2017 to match what men earned in 2016.
Equal Pay Day symbolizes the date when women's wages finally catch up to what men were paid in the previous year. That gap is even more pronounced for women of color, as black and Latina women earn 70 and 60 cents, respectively, for every dollar paid to a white male.
The National Partnership analysis showed that, if the gap were closed, me women could afford food for 1.5 more years, 7.5 more months of mortgage payments, almost 13 months more of rent and more than 14 months of additional child care annually than they are able to pay for at their present wages.
According to their analysis, Utah women employed full time, year-round, are paid just 71 cents for every dollar paid to men.
