Editorial: Stop Asking Women What They Make

March 9, 2017

Women usually make less than men – beginning with their first job and throughout their careers. It’s wrong that employers often offer women lower wages.

By simply taking the question "What are you making now?" off the application, women could come closer to earning what men do for the same jobs. I am proud to stand with my colleagues in support of House Bill 5210.

It’s time to level the playing field and make sure women are paid the same as men for doing the same work.
