ACVISTA-MTCC- Equal Pay For Equal Work Task Force
This position may begin FEBRUARY 18, 2020. In Montana, the Equal Pay for Equal Work Task Force has hosted wage negotiation training's for women. However, the Montana community – especially veterans, Native Americans, and under-served groups – need consistent access to a program built and customized to the geography, scheduling needs, and circumstances of Montanans who have a critical need for tools and techniques to advocate for their pay and change the course of their financial futures. This community need was identified through an analysis of current programming, or rather the lack of programming, available for under-served Montanans. The need was also identified through current and previous feedback from trainings in which this need was not only identified, but requested. More than 150,000 individuals in Montana are estimated to live in poverty, with nearly 40% of those being Native American. Montana ranks in the top ten states nationally of largest Native American populations. Montana is home to nearly a dozen tribal communities that due to geographical isolation and historic poverty rates are in a position to benefit from this capacity building and community empowerment project. Montana ranks a devastating 45th in the nation for median pay disparity. Montana also ranks 4th nationally in the number of veterans returning from service. Veterans in particular face acute challenges returning to the civilian workforce and would benefit from community empowerment through creation and implementation of wage negotiation trainings. This project, therefore, is specifically targeted at underserved women. This includes wage negotiation capacity building for women who are veteran, Native Americans, single parents, first generation college students, or those working to integrate back into the community following incarceration or addiction.
