The 2020 Census report highlights the costs of the pandemic and benefits of early policy safety net measures.
Key takeaways:
- median household income down
- full time earnings up
- stimulus payments and UI very effective at reducing poverty for millions
epi.org/blog/the-2020-…
The Census report on income, poverty, and health insurance for 2020 provide insights into the effects of the pandemic on earnings and incomes as well as the vital measures put in place to reduce economic insecurity during the steep economic downturn.
census.gov/content/dam/Ce…
Median household income fell 2.9% as millions lost their jobs and poverty rose by 1.0 percentage point. The losses to income and increases in poverty would have been far worse if not for the rapid and large boosts to vital safety net programs legislated by Congress in 2020.

A few days ago #LFGthemovie was released. This movie shows us the process of the #EqualPay lawsuit that the @USWNT encounter against @ussoccer
It explains how much it takes to do something like this.
Here s a #Thread to explain what happened
In March 2019 During the #USWNT camps the captains did do a secret meeting with the team and they proposed to make a lawsuit against their federation for Equalpay. That's how it started and on the 8th of March 2019 they released a statement.
They are asking for #EqualPay and also
Equal opportunities with better marketing,more training resources etc.
And the facts are surreal:
So the #USWNT get paid 0$ for advancing in the #WorldCup even if they make it to the Semi finals
They don't take any charters and the hostels are nothing compared to the men.

Erfolg für die #Entgeltgleichheit! Das @ZDF musste in unserem #EqualPay Verfahren nun eine Gehaltsauskunft vorlegen. Die zeigt: Männer verdienen im Median deutlich mehr als die Klägerin und erhalten Leistungszuschläge. freiheitsrechte.org/pm-equal-pay-e…
Das @ZDF hat nun endlich für das Jahr 2017 den Median der männlichen Vergleichsgehälter offengelegt. Jetzt ist klar: Männer haben 2017 im Schnitt rund 800 Euro mehr im MONAT verdient als ihre Kollegin. #EqualPay
Hinzu kommt: Aufgrund der ungleichen Einordnung in das tarifliche Stufensystem steigen Männer früher auf. Im Jahr 2018 dürften Männer im Mittel sogar 1.200 Euro und 2019 1.500 Euro monatlich mehr verdient haben. Obendrein gab es für Männer Leistungszulagen.

A few months ago, I hired an equally qualified woman for less money than I offered a man for the same position.

This is a story about unconscious bias.

#sktech #womenintech #womeninstem #EqualPayDay #cdnpoli #skpoli
#Equalpay for equal labour continues to plague every economy and corporation around the world, with the median pay for women remaining stubbornly 15-20% lower than men, even in countries working hard to do better with legislation, education, and systemic interventions.
Women are perceived as less technical during hiring interviews, they have to prove competence more often than men to justify rewards, including promotions, and they are more likely to take on or be assigned “office housework”.

Hier ist er: Der spektakuläre #EqualPay-Vorschlag der EU – damit Frauen sich endlich „zur Wehr setzen können und das bekommen, was ihnen zusteht“, wenn ihre Arbeitgeber sie unfair behandeln, so @vonderleyen. ec.europa.eu/commission/pre… (1/8)
Firmen >250 MA müssen internen Gender Pay Gap für vergleichbare Jobs veröffentlichen. Schon das geht weit über das deutsche Entgelttransparenzgesetz hinaus. Besser noch: Liegt die interne Lohnlücke >5%, müssen das Arbeitgeber mit Arbeitnehmervertreter*innen (er-)klären. (2/8)
Mitarbeiter*innen erhalten EU-weit das Recht, ein durchschnittliches Männergehalt zu erfahren – vermutl. ähnlich wie in D. Ist das höher, muss der Arbeitgeber im Konfliktfall beweisen, dass es dafür sachliche Gründe gibt – ein entscheidender prozessualer Vorteil für Frauen. (3/8)

Revolution, Baby! Frauen: Ihr glaubt, Ihr verdient weniger als vergleichbare männliche Kollegen? Dann könnt Ihr Euch jetzt wirksam dagegen wehren. Denn heute hat das BAG aus dem verkorksten Entgelttransparenzgesetz ein wirksames Gesetz gemacht. is.gd/q2MdBS (1/6)
So geht´s: Ihr stellt eine Anfrage nach Entgelttransparenzgesetz, direkt beim Arbeitgeber, oder über den Betriebsrat, das ist egal. Das dürfen übrigens auch arbeitnehmerähnliche, also viele freie Mitarbeiterinnen. (2/6)
Ihr bekommt nun einen Mittelwert, den sog. Median, der männlichen Gehälter. Ist der höher, muss Euer Arbeitgeber beweisen, dass es dafür sachliche Gründe gibt, zB mehr Berufserfahrung. Der Unterschied zu früher? (3/6)

Gute Nachrichten: selten. Satiriker, die gute Nachrichten überbringen? Noch seltener! Aber, hier ist eine: #dieanstalt hat ein Gerichtsverfahren mitangestoßen, das womöglich Lohndumping bei der #Leiharbeit beendet. Neugierig? #satirewirkt Ein Thread. 1/13
Hintergrund: knapp eine Million Leiharbeiter*innen gab es zuletzt in Deutschland. In der Coronakrise werden immer mehr Stammbeschäftigte verdrängt: 1/3 aller offenen Stellen sind aktuell Jobs in der Zeitarbeit. spiegel.de/wirtschaft/soz… 2/13
Leiharbeit lohnt sich. Für Unternehmen. Nicht für Zeitarbeiter*innen. Die kriegen oft deutlich weniger als regulär Beschäftigte. Für dieselbe Tätigkeit. Dabei verlangt das Gesetz eigentlich #EqualPay = gleiche Bezahlung für Leiharbeiter und Stammbelegschaft. Eigentlich... 3/13

Das #Bundesarbeitsgericht hat die Urteilsbegründung im #EqualPay-Verfahren gegen das #ZDF veröffentlicht – und es ist ein bedeutender Schritt für mehr #Lohngleichheit in #Deutschland! Warum? Ein Thread – der Link zum Urteil hier 👉 bit.ly/32XqwS5 1/
Erstmals stellt das oberste #Arbeitsgericht klar, was wir von Anfang an argumentiert haben: In Sachen #EqualPay gilt #Europarecht. Dabei hätte die #Bundesrepublik das europäische Verbot der #Entgeltdiskriminierung schon seit 1976 (!) umsetzen müssen (Rn. 50 ff), rügt das BAG. 2/
Erst 2017 schloss das #Entgelttransparenzgesetz diese Lücke – warf aber auch viele Fragen auf. Das oberste deutsche #Arbeitsgericht sorgt nun dafür, dass es effektiv nutzbar ist. Das erleichtert Frauen – und Männern – die auf #EqualPay klagen wollen, das Verfahren in Zukunft. 3/

#Democrats will fight to guarantee equal rights for women, including by ratifying the Equal Rights Amendment and at long last enshrining gender equality in the U.S. Constitution. 2/8 #DemPartyPlatform #ERA #ERANOW
#Democrats will take aggressive action to end pay inequality, including by increasing penalties against companies that discriminate against women and passing the Paycheck Fairness Act. 3/8 #DemPartyPlatform #EqualPay

#equalpayday today. Full time working women in Australia earn 14% less than full time working men.
There’s a lot we can do about the #genderpaygap. Here’s a start. 1. Better value the work done in highly feminised occupations. Workers in the health and care professions perform enormously skilled and economically important work. They are underpaid. #paythemmore 1/
2. Organisation leaders should undertake a gender pay #audit to diagnose #genderpaygap drivers. @wgea has great resources for this. Because this is such a pervasive problem, there will be issues, be open to that and #actonthedata 2/

It’s that time again! Time to acquaint ourselves with the #DemPartyPlatform for 2020. A platform is guiding principles of a party..goals, vision, mission, promise. Only one party has a platform for the next four years..Here is the #DemFuture vision for the next four years..1/12
The last 3.5 years has revealed , at tragic economic and human cost, the emptiness of the Republican Party’s “America First” foreign policy. Under President Trump, America stands alone. 2/12 #DemPartyPlatform
Friends and foes alike neither admire nor fear President Trump’s leadership—they dismiss and ridicule it. The Republican Party under President Trump has made America small—when we are a people called to do the greatest things.3/12 #DemPartyPlatform #DemocraticLeadership

11:41 p.m. ET, and away we go.

First up, #USWNT players opposition to U.S. Soccer's motion for summary judgement.
First section has six points of rebuttal — including ones against the equal work concept, and also FIFA prize money determining #equalpay. #USWNT
It's a lot of the same arguments we've already seen before — especially in the February filings asking for summary judgments, just tweaked as a response, which makes sense.

Pushing back here against the concept that the #USWNT and #USMNT are "operationally distinct."

Equal Pay is a Sex-based Right

We still live in sexist times. BBC presenters paid less than their male equals. Female youth squad footballers thousands less per hour than their male counterparts.

#EqualPay
#ThinkAboutIt Image
You can only sue for equal pay if you are paid less than someone of the opposite sex and you are doing equal work.

The Equality Act tells us it’s based on sex. Not on fairness, not on gender and not on a “glint in the eye”

#LetsTalkAboutSex Image
What happens to a sex-based right if your comparator transitions and is now the same legal sex as you?

Your claim has gone in a puff of smoke

#Thread: After @EliseStefanik’s national meltdown many of you joined #TeamTedra, because you know that her partisan theatrics are bad for the country.

But today I want to tell you about the things Stefanik has done to hurt #NY21 families.
Despite her campaign promises to improve #healthcare for Northern New Yorkers; @EliseStefanik voted to kick 64,000 of us (my family included) off their insurance.

She voted to gut protections for people with pre-existing conditions.

She voted to make RX drugs more expensive.
.@EliseStefanik voted to cut hundreds of billions of dollars from Medicare and Social Security.

In 2012 she chaired the @GOP platform committee and wrote the plan to privatize #SocialSecurity and turn #Medicare into a voucher program.

Welcome to the Member of Congress Tracking Report for the week ending November 10, 2019. With Congress on recess this week, we are going to do things a bit differently this week. We are going to take a dive into #McConnellsGraveyard.

#GOP keeps trotting out their tired talking point about the “do-nothing-Dems” and all we can concentrate on is #Impeachment.

NOT TRUE.

What you’ll find below are 30 bills of the 300+ that #McConnell has stalled in the Senate.

Samira Ahmed’s #equalpay tribunal against the BBC starts today. Astonishingly Jeremy Vine was paid 6 times more than Samira for “doing the same job”. This is discrimination; we have had Equal Pay legislation since 1970. So why was @SamiraAhmedUK paid less? @WomensBudgetGrp
@SamiraAhmedUK @WomensBudgetGrp Important to distinguish btwn equal pay issue from gender pay gap issue. They’re not exactly the same although unequal pay contributes to gender pay gap, and has long term financial consequences on women incl less pension & poverty @mariellaf1 theguardian.com/world/2019/oct…
@SamiraAhmedUK @WomensBudgetGrp @mariellaf1 The details of @SamiraAhmedUK's #EqualPay case against the BBC are shocking. Not only was her white male counterpart (Jeremy Vine) paid 6x more than Samira 4 doing the same work, in a similar show, but Samira's show reached a larger audience than Vine's show. h/t @pressgazette Image

A new colleague just stopped by my desk to inquire about these awesome signs @postguild made for the #equalpay campaign and what men like him could do to help. I was so taken aback I just stared at him for a minute.

No man has EVER asked me that. EVER.
Being aware of the challenges women and people of color face when it comes to #equalpay is a huge first step. But if you want to be as awesome as @EricMGarcia and need some advice, here’s mine:
1 - Share your salary! Being transparent with your own salary can really help women know where they fall on the pay scale. And including extra details, like previous experience, advance degrees, years in the company, etc., help us to calculate our own salary.

NC may just become the 38th state to ratify the #ERA this year!

NC State Senator @EricaforUSSen20 made NC history Thursday filing a discharge petition to free ERA bill S184 from committee to force a floor vote this session! 1/

@EricaforUSSen20 @ratifyeraOrg @EricaforUSSen20 employed the same Discharge Petition process first used by US Rep. Martha Griffiths in 1970 to force Congress to vote on the #ERA. Introduced in 1923, the #ERA bill was ignored for 47 years! That is 'til Rep. Griffith got fed up! 2/
@EricaforUSSen20 @ratifyeraOrg US Rep. Griffiths initiated a Discharge Petition, a method lawmakers use to free a bill intentionally buried in committee.

For too long, #HERstory has been relegated to the sidelines. So, I'm taking matters into my own hands & as we continue our fight for a #WomensHistoryMuseum will be sharing stories of incredible American women so that we can all be #InspiredByHer - I hope you'll share yours, too. Image
For our first #InspiredByHer feature, we are inspired by our 9/11 first responders. Brenda Berkman was part of the first class of female firefighters in the @FDNY, a 9/11 first responder & is a founder of the United Women’s Firefighters (@unitedwomenffs). 📸: @womensmediacenter Image
For our next #InspiredbyHer feature; a true American intellectual & artist, #ZoraNealeHurston. Though too many of her accomplishments went unrecognized until after her death, she was a groundbreaking force in American literature - notably writing Their Eyes Were Watching God. Image

#Resistance family: I pretty much dropped off of twitter for a couple weeks, dealing with personal shit and trying to check my rage and restlessness with the status quo. And, of course, everything is worse now, and in a couple more weeks, it will be even more worse. 1/

Here is the video that was deleted of US women's soccer player behaving like a complete and total trash individual.

#USWNTParade
Feminsts will try and say these women are being wrongly persecuted because they are women. WRONG! If a men's National team behaved this way, they would get harshly criticized also.
Warriors forward Draymond Green is a trash talker of the highest order and he got drunk at all the parades after they won a championship but he never behaved this way . But that is a local team not a team that reprents the entire country. This behavior is disgusting. PERIOD!
