Idaho House Concurrent Resolution 23 was one of those votes that really was a no-brainer. The resolution established Equal Pay Day on April 28, the day that represents how far into the year the average woman has to work in a new year in order to catch up to what her male counterparts earned the previous calendar year. Lost? In other words, ladies, on average, you work for free until April 28 every year. Here in Best of Boise, we applaud the national recognition that women deserve to make as much as their XY chromosomal counterparts. And we applaud the fact that not one member of Idaho's Legislature disagrees. At least not on record.
