In the news this morning, Americans recognized Equal Pay Day yesterday across the country.  Equal Pay Day was originated by the National Committee on Pay Equity in 1996 as a public awareness event to illustrate the gap between men's and women's wages.  Here in Maine, women on average earn 81 cents for every dollar a man earns for equal work.  The wage gap is even greater for most women of color.
