Chet Culver on Jobs

Democrat

  
 


No wage discrimination due to gender, race, or orientation

An act providing that wage discrimination is an unfair employment practice: It shall be an unfair or discriminatory practice for any employer to discriminate against any employee because of the age, race, creed, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, religion, or disability of such employee by paying wages to such employee at a rate less than the rate paid to other employees who are employed within the same establishment for equal work on jobs.
    The practice of discriminating does all of the following:
  1. Unjustly discriminates against the person receiving the lesser rate.
  2. Leads to low employee morale, high turnover, and frequent labor unrest.
  3. Discourages employees paid at lesser wage rates from training for higher level jobs.
  4. Prevents optimum utilization of the state's available labor resources.
