Significance Of Today
Today is International Parity at Work Day. Sadly, despite many decades of activism toward workplace equality, workers continue to experience pay inequality in workplaces all over the world today. No matter what their skin colour, race, nation of origin, religion, or gender, it is only right and reasonable for people to be paid fairly and equally for performing the same jobs for their employers.
