Teachable Moments: Close the Gap!
“Employment equity and pay equity needs to go in tandem…for women we talk about a ‘glass ceiling,’ for a lot of Aboriginal workers, workers with disabilities, and workers of colour, it’s a steel case.”
Although pay equity is the law in Ontario, women, on average, earn 31% less than men. This pay gap affects women of all ages and education levels.
