Employment- EEOC Asks for Teen Advice to Solve the Wage Gap

Here is an interesting idea!

According to a Press Release (dated 4/23/12), on April 26, 2012, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (the “EEOC”) will recognize the 20th anniversary of Take Your Child to Work Day by inviting teenagers to its Denver Field Office to participate in a dialogue for solutions on how to bridge the gender wage gap in America (this gap is the difference in amounts paid to men and women). Suggestions from this forum will be sent to the National Equal Pay Enforcement Task Force in Washington, D.C. EEOC Chair Jacqueline Berrien is a member of that body, which is headed by Vice President Joe Biden.

I think something good and constructive will come out of this.
