Subject: A Message from Your Employee


As you may know, women in Massachusetts earn 83 cents for every dollar earned by men. This ratio can be even worse for many women of color: 85 cents for Asian women, 62 cents for Native women, 58 cents for Black women, and 50 cents for Latina women.

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 website,, and download the Employer Toolkit to get started on closing the gender wage gap.

Thank you,
Your Employee
