Illinois Will Finally Close the Gender Wage Gap… In 2065

At an Equal Pay Day rally at the Daley Plaza yesterday, female leaders across the city highlighted the persistence of the gender wage gap in the United States. “Today is not a celebration. It’s a reminder of the work we still have to do to guarantee equal pay,” said Barbara Yong, founder of Equal Pay Day Chicago, to attendees in the packed lobby. Yong, a partner at the law firm Golan Christie Taglia, started the rally eight years ago to raise awareness about pay equality.
