Need a break from the heat? Join SFWPC at our June Happy Hour in honor of the Equal Pay Act, which was signed by President John F. Kennedy on June 10, 1963. This groundbreaking legislation amended the Fair Labor Standards Act to "prohibit discrimination on account of sex in the payment of wages by employers.
Drinks will be discounted at 22% for women and those who identify as female to represent the gender wage gap that persists today: $0.78 for every dollar men earn. Importantly, the gap is even wider for women of color and LGBT women.
We are excited to host our special guest District 2 Supervisor and DCCC Member Mark Farrell, who is sponsoring the event to make these subsidies possible! He will discuss his legislation to fight for gender parity through equal pay and equal representation in our public spaces.
