The Oregon Equal Pay Act
This morning, Governor Brown signed HB 2005, the Oregon Equal Pay Act of 2017. The bill protects workers from pay discrimination based on gender, sexual orientation, race, or other protected class status. It’s an exciting step forward in our effort to improve equality in the workplace. It was an honor to work with so many great colleagues in this effort to improve economic fairness in Oregon, and I was proud to stand beside them and Governor Brown as she signed the bill into law. The Oregon Equal Pay Act is going to make a real difference for people and families across our state!
