The Gender Pay Gap for State Workers is Unacceptable!
Send a Message to CalHR Director Richard Gillihan


While California leads the nation in laws aimed at reducing gender pay inequity – the state has a very real gender wage gap.

Our union is predominately women (66% female, 34% male).

Yet we are paid 19% less than the average for all rank-and-file state employees.

The state has made deals with male-dominated state worker groups that include wages 43% higher than our average pay.

Take Action!
