California lawmakers on Tuesday passed legislation requiring all employers based or hiring in the state to post salary ranges on all job listings. The law will also require California-based companies with more than 100 employees to show their median gender and racial pay gaps — a first for a U.S. state.

The bill will head to Gov. Gavin Newsom, who has until Sept. 30 to sign or veto it. He hasn’t yet expressed a position and didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment. If he signs it, the law would affect some of the biggest U.S. companies, including Meta Platforms Inc., Alphabet Inc. and Walt Disney Co.

In recent years, more states have adopted an array of transparency laws to fight the stubborn gender and racial pay gaps.

Women who work full time earn about 83% of what men do, according to U.S. Census Bureau data — a figure that hasn’t budged much in recent years. Black women and Latinas earn less, on average, than their white counterparts.

I like transparency laws. Whatever data this will reveal, it will be good for the employees

    I am reorganizing the site I know nobody will notice but I am not done quite yet but the main forums order has been changed and there is a new news category in Other News which is all the remaining headline news stuff not categorized - Headline News is just the stuff that shows on the main page now and the news archive is off the main forums page
  • The Helper The Helper:
    and the real archive lives off of headline news
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Happy Monday!
