Pay Equity Day

Jamestown Mayor Dwaine Heinrich proclaimed March 31, 2020 as Equal Pay Day in Jamestown. Equal Pay Day is the day that symbolizes when the typical woman working full time in the United States catches up to what a man was paid the previous year.

According to the most recent U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, ND women working full time, year-round in 2018 typically earned 73.9 percent of what men earned, indicating little change or progress in pay equity in the past 50 years.   That ranks North Dakota as 47th in the nation as having the largest pay gap for women.

Please consider celebrating Jamestown’s Equal Pay Day by taking the free online Work Smart course at and continue to urge your legislators to make improvements to ND equal pay laws so that fair pay is an accessible reality for everyone.
