— Law banning salary history will be life-changing for workers The law, signed today by Gov. J.B. Pritzker, is a tool to fight the wage gap, and to lift the entire economy up in the process. – CHERITA ELLENS and WENDY POLLACK (DIERSEN: If I had not been denied my 7th Amendment rights in Diersen v. GAO, I would presented a jury with many examples in which GAO paid its female employees more than it paid its male employees who had more job-related work experience, more job-related education, more job-related professional certifications, and/or more job-related professional licenses. GAO was under tremendous pressure from Democrat politicians to hire, to retain, and to promote young Democrat minorities and young Democrat females.)
https://www.chicagobusiness.com/opinion/law-banning-salary-history-will-be-life-changing-workers
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Questions about salary history are extremely common. A recent survey showed that of 15,000 people currently evaluating job offers, 43 percent had been asked for salary history during the interview process. Imagine the cumulative effects of being asked about previous wages when considering a new job over the course of a career. Salary history questions are a major contributing factor in both racial and gender wage gaps. And this is exacerbated for women of color, who, because of the realities of intersectionality, often face both. Black women working in the U.S. make just 61 cents to a white man’s dollar. For Native American women, it’s 58 cents. For Latinas, 53 cents. And when a potential employer asks for past wages, it allows that pay inequity to continue, impacting future wages and earning potential. Over a career, a woman of color can lose over $1 million to the wage gap, further widening the wealth gap. This loss of income has an impact on opportunities afforded to their families, support for their communities and the economy at large.)

If appointed to the board, Powell will replace Jennifer Villarreal, who unexpectedly resigned in June. Amrich initially had suggested appointing former trustees Mark Beeson or John Burke to the post, but board members objected to those nominations last month and delayed votes.)

DAILY HERALD
— Ives seeks ‘more freedom’ for 6th District in campaign to unseat Casten – Marie Wilson
https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20190722/ives-seeks-more-freedom-for-6th-district-in-campaign-to-unseat-casten
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Marty Keller, chairman of the DuPage County Republicans, said he hopes finding the best person to defeat Casten, a clean energy entrepreneur who unseated longtime Republican Rep. Peter Roskam last year, will be the true focus of the 2020 primary. But he doesn’t look forward to the anticipated conflicts between Sanguinetti and Ives. “They’re going to bump heads and spend money,” Keller said about the intraparty foes. “I don’t think you’ll find a primary that made the party stronger afterward.” Ives, 54, said she won’t overlook the primary and knows Sanguinetti has her supporters. But she said she isn’t worried about conflict within the Republican Party. “What Republican Party?” she said. “The Republican Party is pretty divided already.” Her primary run against Rauner is one illustration, and not an example she shies away from. Ives said that challenge shows she’s able to call out — or work with — people of any party when policy or the public good calls for it. “Nobody’s been more independent from both parties than Jeanne Ives,” she said. But in her campaign launch speech Sunday, Ives aligned herself with Roskam, touting the endorsement she has received from the former congressman and his wife, Elizabeth.)
