    Updated On: Apr 10, 2018

    Join CLUW as we participate with a host of allies for a twitter storm at 2 PM ET on February 22nd.
    Some sample tweets follow:

    • AAPI women work 2 extra months to earn what a white man earns in a year. But on #AAPIEqualPay Day, we know there is more to the story. #NotYourModelMinority
    • AAPI women comprise 2.4% of the American workforce, but 4.4% of the low-wage workforce. They need #AAPIEqualPay and are #NotYourModelMinority
    • 58 percent of Asian American women and 63 percent of Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander women are mothers with children under the age of 19. They need #AAPIEqualPay now.
    • We support comprehensive equal pay policies on the state and federal level, including the Paycheck Fairness Act. #AAPIEqualPay
    • Southeast Asian American & Pacific Islander women have some of the highest wage disparities. We need #AAPIEqualPay. #NotYourModelMinority
    • Bhutanese and Marshallese women need to work more than 2 years to earn equivalent of a white man’s 1 year salary. That’s why we need #AAPIEqualPay. #NotYourModelMinority 
    • How can we close the pay gap? Unionize! Union women earn $231 more than women without a union voice. #AAPIEqualPay #1uAAPI
    For more information please check out The National Women's Law Center fact sheet with new and updated data on AAPI women and the wage gap here.
