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.
