Equal pay (for women) now. Is it starting to gain traction?

Posted on November 11, 2015 at 4:30 PM

Equal pay for women has been a rallying cry for decades; the National Women's Law Center has fought for this for over 40 years.

President Obama's White House has been pounding on this issue. There's even a hashtag, #equalpaynow from the Department of Labor and yet women only earn 78 cents to a male worker's one dollar. And the higher you rise in the executive levels, the more inequitable the gender gap becomes.


Ultimately, what it takes will be companies stepping up and doing the right thing. Salesforce is doing just that. Kudos to Salesforce's CEO, Mr. Marc Benioff for reviewing every employee's salary and paying men and women the same money for the same job.
