House Minority Floor Leader introduces three bills targeting worker equality

WYOMING – Democratic Representative Cathy Connolly (HD-13) has introduced three new pieces of legislation designed to decrease the gender wage gap and increase wage transparency.

House Bills 71, 72, and 84 address equal-pay penalties, wage transparency, and wage equality for Wyoming workers, and will go before the House Labor, Health, and Social Services Committee Monday afternoon.

“Wyoming consistently has one of the worst gender wage gaps, and we can do better,” Connolly said. “I’m thrilled to introduce these bills to not only address that gap, but also to protect workers and hold companies accountable for treating all employees equally.”

HB71 adjusts equal-pay violation penalties to a maximum of $500, an increase from the current fine scale of $25-$200.
