BPW members to highlight pay inequality by handing out information, PayDay candybars

CAMBRIDGE, Ohio -- Members of the Guernsey-Noble Business and Professional Women on Tuesday will highlight national Equal Pay Day in downtown Cambridge.

Long-time BPW member Betty Duche tells AVC News that in Ohio, women are paid, on average, 73 cents for every dollar that a man would make doing the same job. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, women in the United States are paid 77 percent of what a man might make. Over the course of a lifetime, that means women are paid hundreds of thousands of dollars less than men to do similar or the same work.

Duche also highlighted a recent report that says that, at the current rate of progress, the pay gap will remain until 2040.

Guernsey-Noble BPW members will recognize Equal Pay Day on Tuesday by handing out flyers and PayDay candy bars from noon to 1 p.m. on Wheeling Avenue.

The Guernsey-Noble BPW assists women in the community through educational, career, social, and legislative opportunities. The organization makes annual donations to the Haven of Hope and awards a yearly scholarship to a selected recipient active in pursuing her education and volunteering in the community.
