Equal Pay Action Day Equal Pay Day did not happen in April due to Covid19; however, a new and improved online version will be held virtually with Lilly Ledbetter as the scheduled main speaker.
Lilly’s unsuccessful court battle over sex-based wage discrimination between men and women in the same workplace doing basically the same job resulted in the 2009 Act named for her that bans such discrimination. Governor Whitmer, Attorney General Nessel, and others will also appear.
The date is Wednesday, September 16, from Noon-1:30 p.m.
Please join us as we “meet” a historic fighter for pay equity.
