NDP will work to close the gender pay gap, increase funding for gender-based supports

A re-elected NDP government will continue to work to make Manitoba a fairer, more progressive province by strengthening the mandate of the Manitoba Status of Women to include an increased focus on pay equity, NDP Candidate for Kirkfield Park Sharon Blady announced today in advance of International Women’s Day.

“Manitobans should get equal pay for equal work, regardless of their gender,” said Blady. “That’s why we will empower the Status of Women office to work with business, labour, and community groups and the public to take concrete steps to close the gender pay gap in Manitoba.”
