Boston’s Wage Gap Initiative

Boston Globe reports: Boston has the best-educated women of any major US city, and now Mayor Thomas M. Menino is trying to make it a better place for them to earn a living. The goal: to make Boston the first city to eliminate the wage gap between men and women.

Menino plans to announce this ambitious initiative on Thursday when he rolls out a compact signed by 38 employers that have committed to ending pay disparities. Nationally, women earn 77 cents for every dollar men make. In Boston, it’s 83 cents to the dollar — a difference of almost $10,000 a year, or about $400,000 over a career, according to a report by the city’s newly formed Women’s Workforce Council.

Paycheck Fairness Act moves forward in Senate

JUST IN: By a vote of 73-25, the Senate has agreed to move on to a full debate on the Paycheck Fairness Act for the first time. (This bill is the model for the NYS Women’s Equality Act pay equity provisions.)

Finally, Americans will get a hearing on the Senate floor about the issue. The next big vote will be the one to end debate which needs 60 votes before the bill can have an up or down vote. Then a simple majority is needed to pass the bill.

While it is still an uphill battle to get this passed, and there’s a rough road ahead for the cloture vote needed to end debate, this is the farthest the bill has gone. The issue will have visibility and anything can happen in an election year.

Nov 14 – Noon to 1:00 – Twitter Focus on Young Women

Thanks, AAUWNY for leading Twitter Power Lunch on Thursday 11/14 at Noon and supplying us with the following:

The needs and challenges facing New York’s young women are many. They have paid a high cost for their education, they are coming to maturity in the midst of an economic downturn, the work world is still filled with discriminatory practices which limit their options, and they suffer the same pay inequity their mothers and grandmothers faced, in too many cases.

The Women’s Equality Agenda is a package of legislation addresses employment discrimination by ending sexual harassment on the job, enforcing equal pay laws, and provide expanded access to legal justice. WEA will ensure young women get a good start on their work careers and get the economic security, justice, and freedom from violence that are essential to women’s equality for all of NY’s 10 million women. We need laws as strong as NY’s women.
