PubliCalendar: Discuss the Wage Gap, Fix up Greenways, and Help Feed Homeless Youth by Watching Top Chef
Today's picks for civic nerds
Wage Gap Panel
77 cents on the dollar—that's how much women make in comparison to men, right? Yes and no.
The wage gap varies from place to place: in 2012 in Wyoming women made 64 percent of their counterpart's salaries, while in Washington, D.C. in 2012, women made 90 percent. It also varies among different groups—Hispanic women make 53 percent of what white men make.
Radical Women Seattle and the Freedom Socialist Party are sponsoring a panel on the wage gap. Discussing race and gender discrimination, the panel will also touch on Seattle and its affordability for underpaid workers.
Wage Gap Panel, Thu, Apr 17, 7pm (doors open at 6:30 for snacks), New Freeway Hall, 5018 Rainier Ave S, $3.
Change is coming to the Seattle waterfront, and the groups behind the effort to revamp the area into a public promenade replete with parks, plazas, and a fresh batch of piers are looking for your input.
Attend the televised panel—featuring Seattle City Planning Director Marshall Foster, Central Waterfront Committee Co-Chair Maggie Walker, and Ivar's President Bob Donegan, among others—to hear discussion of the potential plans.
You can also voice your opinions without suffering through the barrage of expert analysis and advice by completing an online survey.
Wade into the Waterfront, Tue, Apr 29, 6:30–8pm, Downstairs at Town Hall, 1119 8th Ave, free.
