Inside St. Pete’s push for equal pay

A recent study highlighted how St. Petersburg’s gender wage gap is well below the national average and has decreased by nearly 6% over the past four years.

However, 60 years after President John F. Kennedy signed the Equal Pay Act, female workers still make less than their male counterparts to perform the same jobs. That fact, and several other harrowing statistics, was part of Mayor Ken Welch's proclamation recognizing March 14 as Equal Pay Day in St. Petersburg.

The Catalyst interview: Avett Brother Bob Crawford

North Carolina’s Seth and Scott Avett have been at or very near the top rung of Americana music for two decades. They are genre-defying multi-instrumentalists who raised the bar for acoustic music with chill-inducing harmony vocals, country-flavored rock ‘n’ roll and every variation of the above, known and unknown. Great singers, great songwriters.

By the siblings’ side since the earliest days has been Bob Crawford, from New Jersey, who plays upright and electric bass, and violin, and sings. Then there’s cellist Joe Kwon, born in South Korea and brought up not far from the brothers Avett in the Carolinas.
