Governor Steve Bullock kicked off a five-city tour across the state today to highlight new actions taken to advance equal pay in Montana to support hard-working Montanans, their families and grow the economy. The actions include an Executive Order incentivizing best equal pay practices for businesses that do business with the State, an Equal Pay Hotline, and a statewide "Equal Pay MT" sticker and pledge campaign https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/MTWage ... tBRIHjlI%3d to raise community awareness about equal pay.

I was not excited by the pledge campaign. don't get me wrong as a woman, of course I support closing the gender gap. The pledge campaign felt like here are ways you can help the "woman" when we should be focused on gender equality. Recognize the women on your staff by giving them a raise if they do the same work men do equally as well. Support their time off for family or aging parents. I know many women who work full time, care for their children, run a household, volunteer and tend to aging parents. Why don't men fill these same roles and then we would have gender equality.
