Kamala Harris Releases Proposal to Tackle Gender Pay Gaps

Kamala Harris Releases Proposal to Tackle Gender Pay Gaps Harris is taking an aggressive stand on preventing pay inequality in the workplace.

According to recent studies, women are paid 80 cents for every dollar men are paid, with those numbers dipping even lower for women of racial minorities.

Under her new policy, companies would be required to obtain ‘Equal Pay Certification.’ They'd also be fined if they are unable to prove their pay gaps are solely based on merit, performance and seniority.

The proceeds from the fines, estimated to be as much as $180 million, will go towards universal paid family and medical leave.

Her proposal also calls for an overhaul of anti-discrimination laws and the expansion of discrimination based investigations.

If Congress does not enact these policy changes, Harris pledged to take executive action to apply the standards to large federal contractors.

Federal contracts that fail to obtain an ‘Equal Pay Certification’ within two years would be barred from competing for contracts of $500,000 or more.
