Women hold more leadership roles than ever but there’s still a gender pay gap. Here’s why.


Is the wage gap real? We have Kamala as our vice president and more female CEOs than ever before, but women of all races are making less than men.

WASHINGTON – In 2021, pay disparities and discrimination still exist between men and women, and Rep. Carolyn Maloney, D-N.Y., wants people to know that Equal Pay Day is not one of celebration.

"This day marks the extra time it takes an average woman in the United States to earn the same pay that their male counterparts made the previous calendar year," Maloney, chairwoman for the House Oversight Committee, told USA TODAY.

Maloney held a hearing on Wednesday – Equal Pay Day – to examine the pay gap, the disproportionate inequalities women of color face, discuss several pieces of "feminist legislation," and hear from witnesses like U.S. Women's National Team soccer star Megan Rapinoe.

  1. In this case we are definitely at the time of the end! Tribulation is about to start if this is true now!

  2. Speaking of pay gap, consider also this following copy and paste from my files:

    Consider also, the US Fed has a target of 2% inflation every year. But that is also 2% on top of all the 2%’s that came before it, which turns out to be a lot of inflation over time.

    Now first, if people’s wages, benefits and even saving’s account interest do not keep up with the true cost of inflation, they fall behind in buying power, and zero income is still zero income. But with economic inflation people would have a higher economic mountain to climb. They eventually could become economic slaves to the larger economy. And slavery was supposed to be done away with at least here in the USA. It seems it has been replaced by a system of ‘economic slavery’.

    Second, space travel, the ONLY thing that might save any species from this Earth, has gotten more expensive just in my lifetime. What is space travel going to cost in the next 100, 1000, 1 million years from now? Economic inflation just might be a contributing factor to the demise of all life from this planet Earth. And we did it to ourselves. Or more correctly the US Fed did it to us all, including themselves.

    Instead of talk like doing away with the penny, they should actually be trying to bring back and maintain the value of the penny. And then have a target of 0% inflation annually. Otherwise, we all eventually die one day from something and go extinct, which is probably going to occur anyway, but without economic inflation, we would have a better chance of surviving. With economic inflation, less so.

    What good is life if there is no entity left to live it? What good is money if there are no entities left to spend it?

    Survive beyond this Earth, solar system and galaxy, OR die and go extinct. Those are the choices, (if we even actually have a choice). Currently, no exceptions.

  3. That silly law enacted in 1964 regarding equal pay means exactly that, equal. But don’t let facts get in the way.

  4. 16 Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee. (Genesis 3:16)
    you better believe it

    1. USA today has turned into a liberal echo chamber. A man will put in more work and that’s a fact. They want equal pay but put in half of what men put in.

    2. @BiG MiKe I have seen women that can do more then some men. It depends on the person. Also it doesn’t matter what you are you do the job you get paid. If you can’t do the job then you’re fired.

  5. You guys need to be more specific on your stats.

    Because this isn’t true for most areas or job work forces.

  6. That’s just America. Race has nothing to do with it. This is the most disgusting country on earth. We just point the finger at eacjother rather than ourselves it’s down right GROSS

  7. Great spotlight on a easily unnoticed problematic issue. Whether there’s a small or large change we need to fix it to be equal
