The Canadian Labour Congress will renew its efforts to work against wage discrimination against women this March 8 and CUPE will be there.
The campaign - Equality Once and For All - will kick off with 30 teach-ins across the country and a website launch.
The 25 years of slow progress women have made to close the wage gap with men is being reversed. The congress will be releasing new research that shows women make 70.5% of the wages men make.
For Aboriginal women, women workers of colour, and women with disabilities, the economic discrimination is even greater.
The campaign will run for an entire year with ongoing activities designed to raise awareness and promote strategies to address women’s economic equality.
