California Senate Raises Employees’ Pay to Ease Gender Gap
SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — The California Senate is giving raises to 71 employees to reduce a pay gap between male and female employees. Anthony Reyes, a spokesman for Democrats who control the chamber, said Tuesday that the 10 percent raises will cost about $602,000 annually. The increases were given late last year to 58 women and 13 men.
