LANSING - It was 51 years ago today, June 10, when the Equal Pay Act of 1963 was signed. Despite the decades of progress on demanding equal pay for equal work, women still make 77 cents for every dollar that men earn at the same job.
Democratic activists are rallying for a day of action, today, by holding a bake sale where women will be charged 75 cents while men will be charged $1.00. Proceeds will go to a local charity.
It is called a Day of Action on Equal Pay: (Not)Equal Pay Bake Sale, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Amici's Gourmet Pizza and Living Room, 3249 12 Mile Road, Berkley.
