Día de la Igualdad Salarial

Pay Equality Guaranteed in a Union Carpenter Career  

Pay equality remains a sticking point in most industries. Women are still typically paid 84 cents for every dollar men make in the same professions. The growing concern that women’s earnings still haven’t kept pace with men’s pay rates hasn’t been met with the appropriate actions on a grand scale, but strides are being made to overcome the gender pay gap. One way to ensure equitable pay is through a Union occupation.  

Union construction workers offer the same wages for the same work, regardless of gender. Wage rates and scheduled pay increases match skill level—something not found across the board in every industry. 

Union positions offer more than pay equality for women, they also offer job security, career advancement, and excellent benefits like fair pensions and family medical insurance. Union wages often set industry pay rate standards, and it is a great reassurance to see all people being compensated equally for the same skill sets.
