Governor Wolf Takes Action on Equal Pay for Women

Harrisburg, PA – With Pennsylvania women still paid significantly less than men for the same work, Governor Tom Wolf today took action to address the gender pay gap that hurts women, families, and businesses.

Joined by First Lady Frances Wolf, Sens. Christine Tartaglione and Judy Schwank, Reps. Maria Donatucci and Brian Sims, as well as the Pennsylvania Commission for Women and other advocates, Governor Wolf signed an executive order ending the practice of state agencies requiring a job applicant to provide their salary history during the hiring process and called on the General Assembly to pass similar protections for all working women in Pennsylvania.

“The gender wage gap is wrong,” said Governor Wolf. “It’s wrong for women, wrong for families, wrong for business, and wrong for the economy of Pennsylvania. This executive order begins to end this discriminatory practice, so that women hired by the commonwealth are paid what they deserve, and the wage gap does not follow them to a state job.

“All women deserve this same protection, but with federal inaction, the state must take steps to close the gap. Working together, we can ensure that equal pay for equal work is a reality in Pennsylvania.”

Executive Order 2018-18-03, Equal Pay for Employees of the Commonwealth, directs state agencies under the governor’s jurisdiction to:

No longer ask job applicants their salary history during the hiring process;
Base salaries on job responsibilities, position pay range, and the applicant’s job knowledge and skills;
Clearly explain the pay range on job postings.

The Executive Order, which applies to management-level positions, takes effect in 90 days. Read More...

This is ridiculous. If there was really a large pay gap between men and women, wouldn't logic dictate that more women would be employed than men since it would be cheaper for those doing the hiring?
