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.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: A relatively new Island Lake transplant has been nominated to fill a vacancy on the village board. Dan Powell, who moved to Island Lake less than three years ago, could be appointed to the seat during Thursday night’s board meeting. He’s been nominated by Mayor Charles Amrich, but it’s up to the trustees to approve the nomination. 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.)

— Diersen seeks input on important issues that Wheaton needs to address and how those issues should be addressed – Dave Diersen
http://www.gopillinois.com
(THE ARTICLE: I will be seeking appointment to fill the Wheaton West District City Council vacancy. The application deadline is 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, August 6, 2019. Applicants are asked to identify the three most important issues that Wheaton needs to address in the next 2 years and how those issues should be addressed. I would greatly appreciate your input. Please email me at [email protected] or phone me at 630-653-0462. At its two most recent meetings, I urged Wheaton’s City Council to be the first city in Illinois to ban the sale of pot. I served on the Wheaton Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Committee 2003-2011. My wife and I have lived in Wheaton since 1978 and in its West District since 1984. I have served as the Republican Precinct Committeeman for Precinct 9 since 1999. Since 2000, as the GOPUSA Illinois Editor, I have put GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails together and sent them out. Since 2004, those emails have gone out each and every morning, since 2015, they have gone out each and every evening too, and they have included links to more than 341,500 articles and information on many upcoming events. I worked for GAO for almost 18 years, the last 11 years of which at the GS-13 Step 1-10 levels, currently $98,198-$127,654. I served on the Association of Government Accountants Chicago Chapter Executive Committee for 13 years. I worked for IRS for almost 9 years, the last 5 1/2 years of which at the GS-12 Step 1-5 levels, currently $82,579-$93,592. I have a master’s degree in financial markets and trading from IIT, a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul, an MBA from Loyola, and a bachelor’s degree in management from NIU. I am a Forensic Accountant, Certified Financial Services Auditor, Certified Government Financial Manager, Certified Fraud Examiner, Licensed CPA, and Certified Internal Auditor (CIA). I passed the CPA and CIA examinations on my first attempt.)
