April 25, 2006 Equal Pay Day

Each year, the National Committee on Pay Equity (NCPE) organizes the national observance of Equal Pay Day to raise awareness about unfair pay for women. It is observed in April to indicate how far into each year a woman must work to earn as much as a man earned in the previous year.

Librarians, a predominantly female occupation, earn less than other professionals with similar qualifications, experience and responsibility who work in fields that are predominantly male. This is certainly the case for all library workers.
