Closing the wage gap between genders
Canadian women are being shortchanged on job opportunities and pay and it's making income inequality worse. Women get paid 79 cents for every dollar a man makes for the same job/equal work. The gender wage gap is sexist and unfair. Closing the gender wage gap benefits both employees and employers in helping to recruit and retain the best talent. It also helps promote equality and creates more opportunities for women who currently dont have as many as men. The gender wage gap is an ongoing problem for women with the same jobs as men because it makes it harder for women to have a sustainable life when they are getting paid significantly less. By signing this petition you will help to support equal pay for equal work regardless of gender. So, please sign!
