Often, women don’t even know they’re being paid less than their male counterparts for doing the exact same job, and when they do find out, it’s typically by accident. Nearly 58 years have passed since the Equal Pay Act went into law and we are still seeing a drastic pay disparity between men and women. It can be overwhelming for women in this situation to think about how to even begin to advocate for themselves. Enter Jessica Stender.
In this week’s episode, host Sarah Nichols sits down with Equal Rights Advocates’ Senior Counsel for Workplace Justice & Public Policy, Jessica Stender. Join us as the two cover topics from the current gender wage gap to employment law and workers protections. Jessica also discusses the process behind passing a bill in California and her current advocacy work.
