The gender pay gap is real. Most women across the U.S. earn, on average, 79 cents to every dollar men make. And for non-white women, it can be even worse — African American women, on average, earn 60 cents compared to every dollar men make, and Latina women earn approximately 55 cents.
As we recognize Equal Pay Day — the date that symbolizes how far into the year white women must work to earn what men earned in the previous year — we wanted to give a special shout-out to the employers that have eliminated their wage gap and are paying men and women of all races the same amount. Equal pay for equal work.
Here are the handful of companies that have reported 99 to 100 percent pay equity in their employee ranks. If you’re passionate about the #PayMeToo movement and want to get paid fairly, consider applying for one of the thousands of open roles at these companies which have eliminiated the gender pay gap.
