Equal Pay for Equal Work – HB 2462

Women deserve equal pay for equal work, and I will do everything in my power to end barriers to discrimination for working-class women. But in Illinois, women working full time are typically paid just 79 percent of what men are paid for doing the same job, and for women of color, this wage gap is even larger. That is why I voted for House Bill 2462, which would decrease opportunities for employers to not pay women equal pay for equal work by restricting them from asking applicants for prior wage or salary history.
