April 2nd – Equal Pay Day Discounts at Bozeman Businesses
April 2, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 pm
Equal Pay Day symbolizes how far into the year women must work to earn what men earned in the previous year.
Women need to work an extra 3 months to earn what a man earned.
Currently, Montana women with the same education, in the same occupation, still see an average pay difference of roughly 80 cents to every dollar a man makes. The wage difference for women of color is significantly higher across the board. (Hispanic women make 54 cents to the white man’s dollar, Black women – 62 cents, Native Hawaiian women – 62 cents, and Native American women – 58 cents to the white man’s dollar.)
The following local businesses are highlighting this still-existing gap by offering a 20% discount on various products and services for women on April 2nd, National Equal Pay Day. If you’re out shopping that day, please consider patronizing these conscientious businesses:
