Paycheck Fairness Signed by the Governor

Statement of New Hampshire AFL-CIO President Mark S. MacKenzie on the signing of the Paycheck Fairness Act, July 22, 2014



Thank you Governor Hassan for your leadership on this important issue. And thanks to Senator Larsen, Speaker Norelli and all of the legislators that supported this fight to ensure pay equality and end this form of gender discrimination for the working women of our state.

This is not just a victory for women in the workforce, it is a victory for all working people and their families here in the granite state. When women are denied equal pay for equal work, New Hampshire’s families are put at a disadvantage. The lost wages are not there to provide food, clothing and other necessities that we all work to provide for our children.

The New Hampshire Paycheck Fairness Act provides protection for employers by clarifying the conditions when wage disparities between men and women performing the same work are allowable. This new law also strengthens the protections of current equal pay laws by prohibiting employers from adopting workplace policies that bar employees from voluntarily disclosing earnings information, and by prohibiting retaliation against employees who choose to share information about their wages, salaries, and benefits with co-workers.

The NH AFL-CIO is proud of the work we have done to support the passage of this historic legislation. It is one more step toward rebuilding a strong middle class, which has always been the foundation for a strong and vibrant economy that works for all granite staters.

Thanks again to everyone who helped promote and pass this legislation which the governor has signed into law today.
