How can there be such a disparity between what women and men are paid for the same job? One reason -- employers give the same jobs different titles and slightly different job descriptions. Another? Workers who identify wage discrimination or even share salary information remain vulnerable to retaliation.
|Tell Sen. Bonacic to get this bill passed!|
The bill is currently in the Senate Finance Committee once again. Senator Bonacic, who represents many of us, is a member of the Finance Committee.
Please take action. Call or write to Senator Bonacic asking him to support this bill to reduce wage disparity based on the centuries old bias against “women’s work.” Passing this Act will ensure that equivalent jobs are paid fairly despite the gender and/or race of those performing the work.
