The Women's Equality Agenda would help the 10 million women of New York and their families by simply updating our laws to reflect the reality of women's lives in the year 2013. LIKE if you agree it's time for an #UpgradeNY http://youtu.be/zqXnqtIjKjQ
Our equal pay laws were signed 50 years ago. It is time for an upgrade! To secure equal pay, we need stronger laws, which Gov. Cuomo's equal pay plank of WEA will provide. The new law would (a) protect workers if they talk about their salaries by outlawing wage secrecy policies, (b) close a loophole in New York's equal pay law that allows employers to justify paying female employees less, and (c) discourage discrimination by increasing damages available to employees.
