Equal Pay Day, April 4, 2020, marks the day women, on average, must work longer into the year to earn the same amount that men earned in the previous twelve months. But for women who face multiple forms of discrimination, they must work even longer into the year.
The current provincial government has taken many steps that erode protections against gender pay discrimination. No implementation of minimum wage increases. No sick days improvements. No Pay Transparency Act implementation. Cuts to violence against women services. Cuts to education. Government-led legal challenges to the Ontario Midwives. The list goes on and on.
APRIL 4: TAKE ACTION TO CLOSE THE GENDER PAY GAP.
Together, we can send a strong message that the government must close the gender pay gap.
Women with disabilities: 56% pay gap
Indigenous women: 43% gender pay gap
Racialized women: 38% gender pay gap
Immigrant women: 34% gender pay gap
On average, Ontario women face a 29.3% gender pay gap.
