"In the year 2004, full-time workingwomen were paid only about 76 cents for every dollar paid to men. The wage gap is even wider for women of color – African-American women are paid only 66 cents and Latinas only 54 cents for a dollar paid to a white man."
What? 54 cents?
And it gets worse …
"Since 1963, the wage gap has narrowed by only one-third of a penny per year. At the current rate of change, the wage gap will not be eliminated until 2039."
I don’t know about you, but I think that is ludicrous. Us women really need to get together and make this change happen faster. We work too damn hard to not get equal pay for equal work.
Being my own boss is my answer to controlling my own financial destiny. What other suggestions do you have?
