Manley backs equal pay legislation

Romeoville - State Rep. Natalie Manley, D-Joliet, is again sponsoring legislation that would prohibit employers from asking job applicants about their salary history. "The fact that women and minorities do not receive equal pay for equal work continues to negatively impact those individuals and their families," Manley said. "When potential employers ask someone about salary history, it continues the cycle of paying women and minorities less for performing the same duties as other employees. This legislation will help to get at some of the root causes of salary inequality."
