Equal Pay Day 

Standard

Today is equal pay day, which is ironic because 45 just revoked more protections for women.  Further misleading,  is that 21% pay gap for women… Which is misleading because that number is an average for white women only.  Black women earn 33% less than white men, and Hispanic women earn a shocking 40 to 50% less than white men. 

Now, whatever you earn, think about paying your bills with 21% to 50% less money.  Then, consider that women typically also pay higher interest for credit of any kind and higher costs in repairs. 

With about 40% of women being the bread winners, one can more easily understand why a woman’s dollar takes longer to earn and spends much faster for less. Equality anyone?
