PECOM -- Minnesota 2010 Session Begins

Pay Equity Friends,

We're gearing up for another legislative session.

PECOM's 2010 initiatives:

1. Defend current pay equity laws. Monitor appropriate committee activity and be ready should attempts to weaken current laws surface.

2. Educate Minnesota legislators and the public on the current pay equity statutes.

3. Act as consultant to state and municipalities around the country who look to Minnesota as leaders in pay equity.

4. Monitor any initiatives that affect women's economic well being such as paid sick days and job creation incentives. Additionally, encourage any new jobs created in our state be in compliance with current pay equity statutes.

We appreciate our volunteers and hope you will continue to support us. Additionally, in order to execute our initiatives we are undertaking the fee based services of policy consultants.

If you or your organization can help us monetarily please send a check to our fiscal agent:

The Minnesota Women's Consortium,
