President Clinton Jan. 24 detailed a multi-million dollar initiative to address continued pay disparities between men and women in the U.S. workforce. Clinton’s Equal Pay Initiative, part of the White House FY 2001 budget, includes $10 million for the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and $17 million for the Labor Department to combat the pay gap between men and women. Clinton’s plan is subject to congressional approval.

EEOC funding under the proposal would be earmarked for agency staff training in identifying and responding to wage discrimination, development of public service announcements aimed at educating employers and employees on their rights and responsibilities under equal pay law, and employer training and technical assistance on how to comply with equal pay requirements.
