Today, A Better Balance has exciting news to deliver on equal pay!
To mark Equal Pay Day, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo introduced legislation that would prevent employers in the State from relying on or inquiring about a job applicant’s salary history, a practice that disadvantages women and people of color who historically earn lower wages.
- Thank you @NYGovCuomo for introducing the “salary history” bill that will help to close the wage gap & promote equality in NY. #equalpay #bansalaryhistory
- Women shouldn’t need to work 15 months to be paid what men receive in 12. It is time for #EqualPay! #EqualPayDay
- Increasingly, women are heads of household. Paycheck unfairness hurts America’s working families #EqualPayDay #EqualPayNow
