Warren Proposes Executive Action On Women Of Color Pay Gap


Elizabeth Warren proposes executive orders to address race and gender pay gap.

Warren says if she’s elected president she would sign executive orders aimed at addressing the wage and employment leadership gap for women of color, punishing companies and contractors with historically poor records on diversity and equality by denying them contracts with the federal government.

“Our economy should be working just as hard for women of color as women of color work for our economy and their families. For decades, the government has helped perpetuate the systemic discrimination that has denied women of color equal opportunities. It’s time for the government to try to right those wrongs and boost our economy in the process.”

U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren, a 2020 Democratic presidential candidate, on Friday proposed a plan to help women of color get better wages and a path to the leadership positions they have been denied.

Warren announced executive actions she would take on Day One of her presidency if she were elected, the latest plan in the progressive candidate’s policy-heavy campaign that has centered on fair wages, workers’ rights and access to healthcare.

“Employers tilt the playing field against women of color at every stage of employment,” Warren said, beginning with using salary histories that lock women of color into lower wages.

The pay gap issue is part of a larger discussion on income inequality among the 25 candidates who want to challenge U.S. President Donald Trump in the November 2020 election.

In May, U.S. Senator Kamala Harris, herself a woman of color, proposed closing the gender pay gap by requiring companies to disclose pay data and secure an “equal pay certification” or be fined. More

There are a multitude of factors that determine someone’s wages. Trying to say that it’s based heavily on gender or race is ignorant. There is a federal law called the Equal Pay Act. Equal pay for equal work is already the law of the land.

The pay gap between men and women has been debunked over and over again. If Oprah can rise to the levels she has, then other women of color can do the same thing. It’s called hard work and finding an industry that you can succeed in.
