August 27, 2020

Governor Bullock renewed his equal pay executive order and extended the Equal Pay for Equal Work Task Force through 2022 to continue its work to narrow the wage gap.

“Every person in Montana has a stake in ensuring women and men are paid a fair day’s wage for a fair day’s work,” Bullock said. “The actions and advocacy of the Task Force continue to move the needle toward progress and an economy that works for all Montanans.

Just as Women’s Equality Day recognizes tremendous progress, we also know our work isn’t yet done.”
