NY State Passes New "Equal Pay" Law

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo Holds Media Briefing

On Wednesday New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed updated legislation aimed at eliminating the gender wage gap ✊🏻✊🏽✊🏿 in which employers can longer pay person lower wages based on their gender identity, sexual orientation or race.

Cuomo:
#BREAKING just signed new pay equity legislation at the #USWNTParade. The women's soccer team plays the same game that the men’s soccer players play β€” only better. If anything, the men should get paid less. Thank you @USWNT for helping lead this movement for change!

I love NY and I'm proud all the progressive and inclusive laws our officials put into place.
