Narrowing The Wage Gap: Some States And Cities Are

series: Pbs Newshour Weekend

air date: 1/06/18 6:30 PM

Even though Congress passed an equal wage law back in the 1960s, women in the U.S. still only earn on average about 80 cents for every dollar that men earn. And last summer, the Trump administration rolled back an Obama-era equal pay rule that would require large employers to report wage information about women and minorities. As this and other equal pay efforts have stalled at the federal level, states and cities are looking at ways to narrow the wage gap between men and women, with Boston and Massachusetts leading the way. NewsHour Weekend's Megan Thompson reports.
