Lansing Equal Pay Day. The Michigan Equal Pay Day Coalition invites the public to recognize Equal Pay Day, a national day of recognition that, even after more than 53 years of federal law banning sex-based wage discrimination, there is still a significant pay gap between women's and men's wages. The Michigan Equal Pay Day event will occur on the Capitol steps in Lansing. Similar events are occurring across the nation.

Equal Pay Day symbolizes how far into the year women must work to earn what men earned the previous year. Tuesday is the day of the week on which women's wages catch up to men's wages from the previous week. For more information, click here
