Why are men paid more than women for the same job role? To find out, read The Simple Truth about the Gender Pay Gap Fall 2016 edition. This addresses the gender pay gap issues in the United States for all ages, races, and education levels and also proposes solutions on what you can do to close it.
#3 -To Help End the Pay Gap, Stop Asking New Hires for Salary Histories
Earlier this year, Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker (R) signed a bipartisan pay equity bill, which prohibits employers from requiring salary history information before receiving a formal job offer.
Other states have followed suit in diminishing this harmful practice. Governor of California, Jerry Brown (D), signed into law a bill saying that salary history can’t be the only reason to point to if a wage discrepancy exists. Legislators in Maryland, Delaware, Utah, and Nebraska also passed equal pay bills in 2016. Red, blue, and purple states are realizing that the pay gap is real and are taking steps to close it.
AAUW empowers all women and girls to reach their highest potential.
