Ben Jealous Endorsed by the Maryland National Organization of Women

   

October 16, 2018 –  Ben Jealous received an endorsement from the Maryland chapter of NOW.  He has released a new plan to ensure equal pay for women in Maryland, who right now are paid 84 cents for every dollar paid to men.

     

  • That means Maryland women make over $10,000 less than their male counterparts, the equivalent of 79 more weeks of food, five more months of mortgage and utility payments, nearly 8 more months of rent, or more than 12 additional months of child care. 
  • The gap widens when you look at just women of color: Black women are paid 69 cents on the dollar, Latinas 47 cents on the dollar and Asian women 83 cents on the dollar. In Maryland, the study continues, women lose a combined total of more than $18.2 billion annually due to the pay gap.
  • As governor, Jealous will work with the legislature to pass legislation to create inspectors in the Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing, and Regulation that will request pay information from companies and conduct reviews if it appears systemic pay discrimination is occurring. These inspectors will ensure compliance and enforcement with all equal pay legislation in Maryland.

His platform includes various other proposals to address issues that disproportionately undermine women’s economic opportunities, including raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour and universal full-day pre-k to help with rising childcare costs. He has also released a proposal to ensure that a majority of his cabinet are women.
