This was the first year the 9to5 Action Network participated in a national action for Equal Pay Day. The action for equal pay was a project to get members to finish the quote “Equal Pay=” with their own words, write it down on a sheet of paper and take a picture of themselves holding the quote. Members in 15 states participated in the action and submitted over 100 photos and quotes.
Here is what some of our members had to say:
“Equal pay = financial stability for my family.”
“Equal pay = more opportunity.”
“Equal pay = means an equal opportunity to start a business.”
It’s not too late to share what equal pay means to you! Submit your own quote or picture here. Check out our Facebook page and Flickr account to see more pictures from Equal Pay Day.
