"Women's wages" might have been removed from Awards back in 1969, but that doesn't mean we all get the pay we deserve. The pay gap between men and women has still hovered around 15% to 20% for the last 20 years - and women too often get the jobs that don't pay well. It's worse if you're a migrant woman, a woman of colour, a trans woman, an LGBTQIA+ woman, an Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander woman, a woman who couldn't afford to go to University, a woman with unpaid caring responsibilities at home... What women really want is a pay rise.
Look, what we're trying to say is: we can do it. Join us as we host four amazing activists from the Australian Nursing & Midwifery Federation, United Voice, the Big Steps campaign, and the National Union of Workers. They'll share their stories of fighting for fair pay in their workplaces and what lessons they think we all need to learn as we continue to work to close the gender pay gap for all of us.
