Janus impact on women of color, gender pay gap in Democrats' spotlight

Marking Black Women Equal Pay Day earlier this week, Rep. Morgan Cephas (D-Philadelphia) hosted a hearing in Philadelphia to discuss the impact on women of color of the Supreme Court’s ruling in Janus v. AFSCME.

The date, August 7, represents how long it takes for women of color to make the same amount of money than their white male counterparts by the end of the previous year.
 
“On average, black women are paid 38 cents [per dollar] less than white men,” Cephas said. “They face double discrimination based on gender and racial biases.”
