Subject: A Message from Your Employee
As you may know, women in Massachusetts earn 82 cents for every dollar earned by men. This ratio is even worse for African American women who earn 61 cents, and Latina women who earn 50 cents.
Many businesses and organizations do not know that they have a gender wage gap. This is not just a women’s issue; it is a family issue that affects the economic security and well-being of our state. In fact, research shows that the wage gap can affect the profitability of an organization.
As one of your employees, I thought you might be interested in learning more about this important issue and how you can ensure equal pay within our organization.
Please visit the Massachusetts State Treasury’s new website, EqualPayMA.com, and download the “Employer Tool Kit” to get started on closing the gender wage gap.
