Councilman Callahan’s wage equality proposal discussed in committee tomorrow

“The premise of this ordinance is that salary offers should be based upon the specific job responsibilities of a position, and not based upon an applicant’s prior wage history, so as to avoid the perpetuation of gender wage inequalities.”

Councilman Callahan’s Wage Equality ordinance proposal will be considered at the Human Relations committee meeting 6PM, Tuesday, February 25, Town Hall.

Councilman Callahan talked about this proposal at a meeting of the Bethlehem Democrats a while back. Gadfly probably won’t be able to attend Tuesday night and report on the discussion, so he urges you to hear the Councilman talk about his idea.
