Tip Of The Week: Mikie Sherrill And Equal Pay


55 years after the Equal Pay Act was signed into law, the gender pay gap is alive and well, especially for women of color. Black women earn $.63 for every dollar earned by their white male counterparts; Native American women $.57; Latina women $.54; and white and Asian women $.79 and $.87, respectively.

Responding to her opponent’s vote against equal pay for equal work, Mikie Sherrill said, β€œIn 2018 it is hard to believe that any legislator would vote against ensuring women get equal pay for equal work...I am deeply disappointed that... Webber chose to vote...against legislation that would give the women of New Jersey a well-deserved raise.”

Sherrill has distinguished herself in traditionally male-dominated fields, as a navy fighter pilot and federal prosecutor.
