Welcome: 

 

Here in Montana, women are earning only 69 percent of what men earn, putting Montana at 29 th in the nation for pay equity. I’d match the Montana work ethic up against any other state in the nation, and 29 th place is unacceptable.

I believe ALL Montanans deserve a fair day’s wage for a fair day’s work. That’s why I established the Equal Pay for Equal Work Task Force to meet this challenge head on and make Montana the first state to achieve gender pay equity.

Equal pay for equal work is about putting more money in the pockets of Montana families. When both the bread winners of a household earn more money, that money is dispersed throughout the entire Montana economy—creating better jobs and economic opportunity. Equal pay for equal work will ensure that our state continues to have a strong and fair economy for all Montanans.


Sincerely,

STEVE BULLOCK
Governor

Studies show that both men and women are uncomfortable with wage negotiation, but women are far more uncomfortable, often resulting in significantly lower pay. Find resources to help you navigate through the workforce in ways that are efficient, effective, and beneficial.
