Eliminate the gender pay gap


Equal Pay Day highlights the gender pay gap

Around the world "Equal pay Day" signifies the additional time from the end of the previous financial year that women must work to earn the same as their male counterparts, due to the gender pay gap. In Australia, the Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA) supports the day by leading a national campaign aimed at raising awareness and encouraging positive action.
