Organizations have made huge strides toward pay equality in the workplace, but there’s still a lot of work to be done.

This persistent problem has a host of negative effects on women, minorities, their families, and even their employers.  Every worker has the right to expect equal pay for equal work. Federal and State legislation have been passed to prevent wage discrimination, but even with these laws in place, wage gaps persist. Part of the issue is that pay equity itself is complicated and often misunderstood.
