At the same time that the gender wage gap increased, Visier found women were more likely to outperform their male colleagues in performance ratings.
A woman working full time in Florida is typically paid 87 cents for every dollar paid to a man - a yearly difference of $5,474, according to the annual "Equal Pay Day" report by the nonprofit National Partnership for Women & Families. African American women make 63 cents to every dollar and Latina women make 58 cents.
The UAE Cabinet has approved the issuance of legislation to ensure equal pay for men and women working in the country.
The majority (63%) of the time in the US, men are offered higher salaries than women for the same role at the same company, according to wage gap data and survey responses compiled by Hired.

To highlight the disparity between white men's earnings and those of black women, there is a separate day specifically for black women each year called Black Women's Equal Pay Day, which was held on July 31 last year.

University of MA sociology professor Michelle Budig found women's earnings slip 4 percent for each child they have. Institutions and work structures that perpetuate these the same systems, such as reliance on previous salaries to negotiate pay rates, keep the wage gap alive.
But in addition to the lack of awareness there is another problem perpetuating pay inequity: Women have been gaslighted into believing that it's an obstacle they have to surmount on their own in order to get a fair salary. The one thing that has not changed is this expectation that when couples have children, it is the women who are going to step back and take care of them. Equal Pay Day is a reminder of how far we still have to go to achieve real equality.
