Making Sure our Tax Dollars go towards Pro-Women Companies – HB 3539
Unfortunately, even today, women make roughly 79 cents on the dollar for every dollar a man makes. Employers should not let that wage gap persist, especially the large corporations that make billions in profits every year. That is why I voted for legislation that would require companies to prove they are paying women and men equally if they want to contract with the state. We have a long path to go towards true pay equity, but House Bill 3539 is an important step forward.
