Redundant "Fair Pay" Bill Being Considered in Annapolis

Date: February 25, 2016 Last Edit: March 02, 2016

SB481/HB1003, legislation
to close the so called “wage gap” in Maryland is being considered by
the General Assembly. This legislation will force small businesses to devalue
important factors such as training, education, and skill that most employers
use to establish wages. It
would also impose burdens and risks on employers by expanding the federal Lilly
Ledbetter Act, opening businesses up to lawsuits.
