Guest column: Fred Meyer should close its pay gap
The Bend Bulletin
BY GENA GOODMAN-CAMPBELL
Today women only earn 79 cents for every dollar made by men, and for women of color the gap is even bigger. It can be hard to understand how the gender wage gap persists even as states such as Oregon have pursued additional legislative solutions to pay inequity. That’s why I appreciated The Bulletin’s recent coverage of how Oregon grocery workers have found women are being shortchanged by a large local employer, Fred Meyer.
