The Springfield Business & Professional Women’s Club (BPW) hosted an Unhappy Hour at Mordecai’s Restaurant on Tuesday, April 23.
This was in recognition of National Equal Pay Day.
April represents the month that a woman must continue working through in order to earn what a man makes by the end of the previous year.
Nationally, women are paid 77.4 cents for every dollar men earn. The wage gap remained statistically unchanged for 2012.
Women wear red traditionally at the unhappy hour to show women’s wages are still in the red!
Members and guest enjoyed complimentary appetizers and drink specials. Drawings for door prizes were held.
