For more than a quarter-century, the United States has recognized Equal Pay Day: the day that marks how far into the new year the average woman must work to match what her male counterparts made the year before.
Union Women Equal Pay Day comes a full month earlier than Equal Pay Day for all women. Being represented by a union reduces women’s wage gap by nearly 40 percent compared to the pay gap experienced by non-union women. This means hundreds of thousands of additional dollars in union women’s pockets over the course of their careers.

Today, Equal Pay Day arrives earlier than it has in its 26-year history.

Overall, women earn .83 cents for every dollar that men make, according to the most recent US Census data.
This means that in 2020, the average woman working full-time, year-round, made 83 cents to a typical man’s dollar — up one cent from the previous year.

By race, the numbers tell a different story.
Here's a list of what women by other racial groups make compared to white men.
• Asian American, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander Women’s Equal Pay Day is May 3. Asian American and Pacific Islander women are paid 75 cents for every dollar paid to white men.
• Black Women’s Equal Pay Day is September 21. Black women are paid 58 cents for every dollar paid to white men.
• Native Women’s Equal Pay Day is November 30. Native women are paid 50 cents for every dollar paid to white men.
• Latina’s Equal Pay Day is December 8. Latinas are paid 49 cents for every dollar paid to white men.

The good news is that the overall gender wage gap is closing.

But while we should celebrate the progress, we have made we should not be satisfied until Equal Pay Day is no longer necessary at all.
If women made what they deserve equal to what their male counterparts are making, the economy would be doing much better. We need to get serious about making sure that women are earning the money that they deserve.
We need to make sure that we're making our voices heard at the ballot box.

Clara Day battled both race and gender stereotypes on her way to attaining leadership positions with Teamsters Local 743 in Chicago and in the community.

She joined Teamsters Local 743 in 1955 after successfully helping to organizing more than 3,000 employees. In 1976 she was elected to the Local 743 Executive Board and served as Trustee and Recording Secretary for more than 20 years.

Day was a powerful voice in support of the civil rights movement and served as a founding member of the Coalition of Labor Union Women in 1974. She led a delegation of her union members in the historic March on Washington in the company of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in 1963.

Day was very active in the battle to pass the Equal Rights Amendment for women and was a founding member of the Teamsters National Black Caucus in 1976.

I AM A PROUD TEAMSTERS WOMAN AT LOCAL 743
On this day in labor history, the year was 1934. That was the day that came to be known as Bloody Friday. Minneapolis Teamsters had been on strike for three days in their third strike of the year. The trucking bosses had reneged on their May settlement. They refused to recognize union organization of inside workers. In the period between strikes, the union had documented hundreds of cases of discrimination. Now, 7,000 Teamsters effectively shut down trucking throughout the city. Local 574 leaders established a daily strike bulletin. The Organizer, as it was called, would serve to guide strikers to victory. In his book, Revolutionary Teamsters, historian Bryan Palmer notes that the first few days of the strike had been quiet. Then on this day, police attempted to break the picket lines by running what seemed to be a lone scab truck through the lines. It was later discovered the truck was moving no merchandise, but was used to draw strikers into a confrontation. When flying pickets moved to stop the truck, they were ambushed. Police opened fire on unarmed pickets and then sprayed those who attempted to escape with buckshot. At least 48 were wounded. Striker Henry Ness and Unemployed Council supporter John Belor were killed. Palmer notes that Ness had been shot point blank in the chest. Doctors pulled 38 slugs from his body. “His death bed injunction repeated word of mouth among the strikers: “Tell the boys not to fail me now.” More than 40,000 turned out to pay their respects to the World War I veteran and father of four. Palmer adds that, “Bloody Friday had lasted a matter of minutes. But its meaning would leave a mark on the very fabric of Minneapolis socio-economic relations…” From 2015: I love Labor History in 2:00 | July 20 No Newspaper Today, let's play it! http://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-dnbpi-57748b From 2016: I love Labor History in 2:00 | July 20 Delivering Respect, let's play it! http://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-k5sf8-6136a9
