Ways You Can Help Close the Wage Gap

1. Send donations to the Pay Equity Coalition to:
550 Rise St., Saint Paul, MN 55103

2. The coalition is looking for a private sector business to act as the subject of a pay equity analysis. The purpose of the study is to determine if the effectiveness of the pay equity tools used by MN public sector employees is transferable to private sector businesses. The identity of the business participating in the study will be anonymous. Please send any business subject suggestions to

3. Ask candidates in your area if they are familiar with the wage gap between men and women? Do they support legislation, such as Minnesota's Local Government Pay Equity Act to ensure women are paid fairly?

4. Check out the Fair Pay Act , The Paycheck Fairness Act, the Fair Pay Restoration Act and make sure your elected officials in Washington support them.
