This briefing paper analysed U.S. population data from 2014-2016 in order to examine how equal pay could affect rates of poverty. Findings include: providing equal pay to women would cut women’s poverty rate in half, equal pay would benefit 25.8 million children of underpaid women, and equal pay would produce an extra 512.6 billion to the U.S. GDP.
