As our industry continues to pave the way for transparency in recruiting, issues surrounding pay remain at the forefront. A recent article from Vox does an excellent job highlighting the pay disparity issues that plague our industry, along with their thoughts on potential solutions.
Their suggested solutions include:
- Requiring companies to publicly report pay gap data
- Raising the minimum wage
- Affordable, high-quality childcare
- Making it easier to unionize
This author thinks it’s time we took it a step further. Full transparency is the only path to eliminating pay disparities. It’s been sixty years since congress passed the Equal Pay for Equal Work Law, but we’re still not where we need to be.
Looking at recent legislation in California and NYC – it appears that we’re finally striking an important nerve in the call for transparency. Here at CXR, we’re continuing to bring together industry leaders to lobby for a reasonable baseline that establishes fair and equitable practices.
