“Addressing pay inequities that have long impacted our diverse communities and workforce is critical to both our economy and gender and racial justice. As the Salary Transparency Law (Local Law 32) takes effect today, New York City is demonstrating the importance of salary transparency for job seekers and employees alike as a pivotal step towards pay equity. We must narrow stubborn gender and racial pay gaps, especially for Black, Latina, indigenous and Asian women. The Council will continue to monitor the impact of Local Law 32’s implementation, while pursuing additional efforts to achieve pay equity for all New Yorkers.”
