Event Details:

Councilmember Nick Komives and Councilwoman Yvonne Harper will introduce the Pay Equity Act on April 9, 2019. The ordinance will help to close the pay gap that exists due to discriminatory business practices. Through barring employers from requesting salary history of potential employees, employers will only be able to offer equal pay for equal work.

Think about this: A young woman in Ohio beginning a full-time job today will lose $507,440 over a 40-year career compared to her male counterpart. If she is a woman of color, the disparity increases. An African American woman stands to lose $718,000 and Latinas lose $791,400 compared to white males.

The time is now to close the gap!

We invite you to attend a press conference outside of Toledo City Council Chambers at 1pm on April 9, 2019. We will be joined by a large coalition of organizations. We look forward to seeing you there.
