Shocking but true, we are still seeking pay equity for women in Massachusetts in 2015! A hearing on H.1733/S.983, a bill establishing pay equity, is scheduled by the Joint Committee on Labor and Workforce Development for Tuesday, July 21, at 1 p.m. in hearing room A2 at the State House.
The coalition supporting this bill is planning a rally and press conference to make the point to legislators at noon at the Grand Staircase in the State House.
Come to the State House July 21 to make your voice heard and to support the League of Women Voters of Massachusetts (LWVMA) testimony on pay equity. That hearing will also cover H.1769, a bill defining rights for pregnant workers, which we support.
