(WASHINGTON, D.C.) — Equal Pay Day marks the date when the average woman’s wage finally catches up to the average men’s wage made in the previous year. On average, women working full-time, year-round still earn only 80 cents for every dollar earned by men. According to the National Women’s Law Center, Maryland women who are employed full-time will lose $398,240 over the course of their careers due to the gender pay gap.
