Earlier today, Gov. Cuomo announced that New York State Pay Equity Study, which is co-chaired by Lt. Governor Kathy Hochul and State Labor Commissioner Roberta Reardon, will hold a series of hearings on the state’s gender pay gap. The hearings will focus on “the causes, scope, and economic impact of the gender pay gap,” and will be held in New York City (June 26), Syracuse (July 11) and Buffalo (July 19).

Gov. Cuomo said:

“New York is the progressive leader of the nation, and we are committed to ensuring equal pay for equal work.  These hearings will help us identify strategies to close the wage gap in New York and support our efforts to make New York a more just and equal state for all.”
