November 2018 Meeting

Working Women and Pay Equity

Saturday November 3, 2018, Golden Sails Inn

Economic Security: Pay Equity and Working Women is a major issue supported by AAUW National, State and Local organizations. Many women are affected by unfair working environments and unequal pay. We are affected during our working lives and at retirement since retirement income and individual social security are based on salaries, positions and length of time worked. Families are affected.
The American Association of University Women believes that pay equity and equal employment opportunity are a matter of simple fairness. AAUW is a leader in the fight to end wage discrimination and open doors for women in the workplace. 
Despite civil rights laws and advancements in women’s economic status, workplace discrimination still persists. Typically, women who work full time take home about 80 cents for every dollar a full-time male worker earns.1 Over a career (47 years), women’s total estimated median earnings loss compared with men is $700,000 for a high school graduate, $1.2 million for a college graduate, and $2 million for a professional school graduate. 2
We will be seeing two stimulating videos from TED TALKs about women in the workplace followed by a discussion about the status of women and work in today’s American society.
Join us on Saturday morning, November 3 at the Golden Sails Best Western hotel for an informative meeting. Thanks to Flo Pickett for organizing the program.
