Chicago alderman pushes for employers to include salary ranges in job postings
CHICAGO - Chicago could soon require employers to include salary ranges in job postings.
The ordinance was introduced by 36th Ward Alderman Giblert Villegas, who says the goal is to combat gender-based pay disparities.
According to Census data, in Illinois, men make nearly $13,000 more than women, which is one of the highest pay gaps in the nation and the biggest in the Midwest.
