What is equal pay worth to you?
Is it worth $10,784 - the amount that women in the U.S. are paid less than men?  Or what about $431,000 -  the amount that the typical woman working full time will lose over the course of her career due to the gender pay gap?
Pay discrimination is a real and persistent problem that continues to shortchange working women and their families across the country. 
When women and their families lose thousands of dollars in critical income each year, they have less money to spend on food, gas, rent and other basic necessities, and our economy suffers as a result.
What if you knew that you could help secure equal pay for women around the country?  Is equal pay worth $20?  
When you become a member of 9to5 at the special rate of $20, you are directly contributing to 9to5's efforts to guarantee equal pay for equal work.   
Your membership will help 9to5's work to pass the Paycheck Fairness Act.  This national legislation will eliminate loopholes that have undermined the effectiveness of the Equal Pay Act of 1963, and will protect workers who share wage information with each other.
April 8th is Equal Pay Day, the day that represents how far into 2014 women must work to earn what men earned in 2013.  Join or renew your membership with 9to5 today and help put an end to gender pay discrimination.
Isn't that worth $20?

In Solidarity,

Linda Meric, National Executive Director
