Here in the United States, women make of influence 80% of all consumer spending decisions.

In time for Equal Pay Day, a national organization has released an analysis that again names Wyoming as the state with the largest gender wage gap in the country.

"It's not just about the pay check inequality but it's the access to other assets that allow you to be able to thrive".

The call for action came on Equal Pay Day, a symbolic daycreated in 1996 by the National Committee on Pay Equity. "Paychecks for women continue to lag, and it is past time to fix the inequity - that is why I am co-sponsoring the Paycheck Fairness Act", said Tampa Congresswoman Kathy Castor.

"The Bill entails that companies and institutions of a certain size, 25 or more employees, undertake a certification of their equal-pay programmes", said Thorsteinn Viglundsson, Minister of Social Affairs and Equality. The wage gap spikes for women of color; in Florida Hispanic women earn an estimated 68 percent and black women earn 70 percent of of white males in Florida earn, according to one estimate. Black women in IN make just 66 cents for every dollar a white man makes, compared to the national average of 63 cents on the dollar. This Pew Research data shows there's an 83 percent average for all workers ages 16 and older. She suggests that raising the minimum wage and businesses conducting pay audits by gender and race could both help make society more equal.

That circumstance became clear for Democrats this year when they were largely unable to block any of Trump's cabinet appointments. That's known as a "cloture vote" and with at least 41 Democrats voting no, the motion to proceed to a final vote will fail.

Most women make an average of $430,480 less than her male counterparts over the course of a 40-year career.

"The projection right now is if we go at the rate that we're going it'll take another 100 years for women to be paid the same as men", Duba said.

"We still have a massive pay gap", said San Francisco Supervisor Mark Farrell, who introduced the "pay parity" ordinance to the board. "I am proud to work towards this goal alongside my father and in support of the administration's commitment to women and families".

Richard says equal pay isn't just about more money for women. Among the highest-paid roles, only three of them employ more women than men - all within human resource roles.

They are also hoping to ramp up lobbying behind federal legislation to strengthen the Equal Pay Act, a 1963 law prohibiting wage disparity based on gender.
