2022 Equal Pay Days

March 15 is Equal Pay Day

Women must work until this date to be paid what men were paid as of the end of the previous year. This date is based on the latest U.S. Census figures showing that the average woman who works full time is paid on average just 83 percent of the typical man’s pay. The National Committee on Pay Equity (NCPE) started to report this information in 1996. Each Equal Pay Day raises awareness about the gender wage gap for each subgroup of women.  In 2020, the dates needed a new methodology to reflect the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic which pushed many women, especially women of color, into part-time or seasonal work, or out of the workforce all together. (Historically, Equal Pay Day has been calculated using data on full-time, year-round workers.) For 2022, the Equal Pay Day coalition has adopted a new, more inclusive methodology. This encompasses a broader cross-section of women, including those who work part time or seasonally, to represent a more accurate picture of how the gender pay gap impacts diverse communities.
