Bill Supports Equal Pay for Equal Work




It's not exactly LGBT-specific news, but supporters of equality should note that a Tennessee House Employee Affairs subcommittee is set to discuss an "equal pay for equal work" bill on Wednesday, February 10th.

The bill, sponsored by Rep. Mike Turner (D-Nashville), increases penalties for denying equal pay for equal work based on gender. The Tennessee Transgender Political Coalition strongly supports the bill.

Rep. Mark White, a Republican from Memphis, sits on the committee.
