Take the Workplace Equity Survey
Why is it important to take the survey? Because women earn about 77% of what men earn, across all professions and distinctions. And this wage gap has not made progress since 2001.
Take the survey now!
The survey will help us find out why the wage gap exists and what we can do about it. The survey is for both men and women. It is anonymous. It will take less than 10 minutes. And it will greatly benefit our knowledge of the wage inequalities in Rochester.
The survey was developed by the Susan B. Anthony Center at the University of Rochester.
Rochester NOW members are fighting for Equal Pay for women. In New York State, women earn only 86% of what men earn, and this wage gap is even larger for women of color. African-American women earn only 66% and Hispanic women earn only 54% of what men earn. Overall, the gap between full-time working women and men in New York State is more than $8,000 annually, or what could be the equivalent of several months of rent or mortgage payments, critical savings toward the purchase of a home or a child's education, or even a full year of grocery bills.
