Equal Pay Day is Tuesday April 9
On average, women must work 15.5 months to make what a man does in 12. That’s why we’re marking #EqualPayDay Tuesday April 9, 2019. Download our guide on how to organize for this Equal Pay Day here: OFL Equal Pay Day March 21 2019
Equal Pay Day 2019 Actions
Each Minister listed below plays a key role in the closing the gender pay gap. Each Minister either oversees key female-dominated sectors in Ontario’s economy or controls economic development. The Equal Pay Coalition wants to hear the Ministers’ plans to close the gender pay gap.
Equal Pay Day is an opportunity to visit these Ministers’ offices to hear their plans. Join a group that is already visiting these Ministers or plan your own visit!
