Ruben Kihuen on Jobs
It is unacceptable that if a woman and a man do the same job, on average, the woman will make 30% less. That's why I sponsored and passed legislation to crack down on employers knowingly paying women less than men in Nevada.
In 2015, I presented the bill in the Nevada legislature to raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour. Unfortunately, the reckless Republicans who controlled the legislature killed the bill. I will continue to fight for an increase at the Federal level in Congress.
