Commissioners Respond To The Crisis

Each week learn more about how one Commissioner is responding to the COVID19 crisis in her community. 

Every year, women in California lose 78.6 billion dollars to the pay gap. In 2016, California passed the strongest equal pay laws in the country – but passing a law is only the first step.

That’s why the Office of the First PartnerThe CA Commission on the Status of Women and Girls, and TIME’S UP have joined forces to spread the word to both employers and employees about how to close the pay gap.
