In Ontario the gender pay gap is a human rights crisis.
Equal Pay Day marks how far into the new year the average woman must work to earn what men earned by the end of last year.
With the average gender pay gap at 29.3%, it means women must work 3.5 months longer to equal what a men make in a year. On average, women must work 15.5 months to earn what a man earns in 12 months.
This year the Equal Pay Coalition is calling on Labour Minister Laurie Scott to take action to close the gender pay gap.
Please join the action on Tuesday, April 9 from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm outside the Ministry of Labour (400 University Avenue) for this outreach blitz.
