Thanks for your note to FEMINIST.COM.
Just about two weeks ago President
Clinton proposed spending $27
millon on trying to close the
wage gap. This plan would commit
$10 million to the Equal Employment
Opportunity Commission to train
inspectors and educate employers
on the equal pay laws. It would
commit an additional $17 million
to the Department of Labor for
programs to train women in jobs
where they have been underrepresented
such as high tech.
You can learn more about this
effort and others from White
House Office on Women.
Specific to pay equity you
can also contact the EEOC
and the Department
of Labor. Also try: Understanding
the Issue, and the National
Committee on Pay Equity.
