Watch One Woman’s Response to Unequal Pay


Today is Equal Pay Day. Why? Because it is how far into the year the average woman must work to earn as much as her male counterpart earned in 2014.

Watch one woman’s response to discovering that she only earns 78 percent of what her male co-workers earn.
