The Lower Columbia Diversity Project invites the public to a panel discussion on wage inequality from 7 to 9 p.m. Tuesday at the Judge Guy Boyington Building, 857 Commercial St.
Nationally, on average, a woman holding a full-time, full-year job is paid $37,118 per year, while a man is paid $48,202. This means that, overall, women are paid 77 cents for every dollar paid to men, amounting to a yearly wage gap of $11,084 between full-time working men and women.
The panelists will be: Brad Avakian, Oregon Commissioner of Labor; Susan Denight, Clatsop County Womens Resource Center economic stabilization specialist; Marlene Howell, instructor for Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at Portland State University; and Corinna Spencer-Scheurich, directing attorney of the Northwest Workers Justice Project.
