“Be you, have a strong support group and continue to passionately advocate for yourself and to be your own best advocate.” -Samantha M. Parisi
How can WOC use anti pay discrimination laws to advocate for themselves in the workplace? Lawyer and Pay Equity Coalition advocate Samantha Parisi joins me to discuss last year’s Latina Equal Pay Day rally and key pay equity bills the Coalition helped fight to get signed into law in NY state. We also discuss her experiences witnessing pay inequity and workplace discrimination firsthand, and how this has influenced her law career.
