Pay equity is one of the great subjects of our time. After centuries of inequality, women are finally taken into account and have realized that men are paid much more than women, and this, in employment and equivalent position. A big problem for the female cause, but also for companies, which after years of blindness, want to give themselves a good conscience to repair this damage.
Apple is one of those companies that want to get things done. The apple brand is also one of the first 13 signatories to a campaign led by the California state to reduce the gender pay gap. Named ” CA Equal Pay Pledge “, This program is supported by the Time’s Up collective and the California Commission on the Status of Women. The participating companies undertake to carry out an annual analysis of the compensation of its employees, by gender.
Airbnb, AT&T and Ike Robotics are also part of this support. ” California has the strictest equal pay laws in the country – but there is still a long way to go “Said Siebel Newsom, an American director. ” This is why I congratulate these Californian companies for their commitment to pay equity and that I am delighted to collaborate with the California Commission on the Status of Women and Women and with TIME’S UP to continue working to reduce the pay gap. Together we can raise Californian women to ensure a fairer future for all ” An entire program !
