Rep. Briggs King and several of her colleagues attended a press event recently to show their support for equal pay for women in our state. In Delaware, according to the American Association of University Women (AAUW), women who work fulltime were typically paid 83% to every dollar paid to men working fulltime. On March 24th at Legislative Hall, lawmakers, staff and guests wore red to symbolize that women's pay remains "in the red" when compared to our male counterparts.
