Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren (Mass.) on Tuesday once again used Equal Pay Day to signal her support for equalizing the gender pay gap between men and women-without addressing her own history of failing to pay Senate staffers equally.

Among the UK's biggest spirits companies, Halewood Wines and Spirits has the smallest gender pay gap between men and women, government data has disclosed. On average across all positions and years in a position, females make 18 percent less than their male peers, and minorities make 12 percent less than non-minorities. Wyoming has the largest gap between men and women at 36 percent with NY and DE taking the top spots at 11 percent. According to the American Association of University Women, Latinas earn 54 cents on the dollar compared to their male counterparts, while black women earn 63 percent.

President of the National Organization for Women, Toni Van Pelt, explained that pay inequality impacts women through their entire careers - affecting vacation time, retirement savings and other aspects of life.

Last year, as a species we managed to create adaptable, airless tires, elevators that move in more directions than up or down, and breast pumps that are so thin and discreet that women can fit them in their bras, according to Time magazine.

Although Congress enacted the Equal Pay Act in 1963, the gender pay gap is still pervasive. Those numbers are even more important considering that more than 80 percent of black women are the key breadwinners for their families, according to the study.


So, ladies, pick your vice-wine, beer, or coffee-and receive 20% off for Equal Pay Day!

Since the 1960s, the pay gap has narrowed in the USA, but progress in the last couple of decades has slowed.

Median wages of MS women who are mothers fall below the overall median, earning $0.71 on the dollar compared to fathers. The sector continues to be dominated by men, which is part of the reason that their salaries are higher than women's. "If our country is to thrive and we are to address poverty, we simply must ensure that women are paid fairly and have opportunities to advance to higher paying jobs". This isn't a discussion about whether women should be paid equally or whether it is wrong for an employer to discriminate in pay against women. Believe me, it's the least you can do.

No one who cares about economic justice and the rights of women is celebrating this occasion.

The Royal Bank of Canada, Scotiabank and Toronto-Dominion said the mean hourly rate for their United Kingdom -based female workers was between 35 and 44 per cent lower than men's rate.
