Democrats Introduce Equal Pay Bill

Oct 21, 2013

Some Democrats at the Ohio Statehouse have introduced a bill that would require women and men earn equal salaries for equal work.

Democratic State Representative Sandra Williams says it's long overdue when you consider women are the heads of households in many Ohio families.

The Democrats say their legislation would bring Ohio in line with the federal Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act. They say it would close state loopholes that allow employers to engage in discriminatory and unfair gender-based pay practices.
