State of the State Recap; Addressing Pay Equity in Maryland

Feb 4, 2016

In his second State of the State address yesterday, Governor Hogan struck a tone of bipartisanship. But Democratic leaders say the governor’s rhetoric doesn’t match his budget. WYPR reporter Rachel Baye joins us to recap what we’ve seen so far in the 2016 assembly. Plus, are one man’s burdensome regulations, a woman’s inalienable protections? We look at one of the bills from the proposed "Women’s Economic Security Agenda," which includes equal pay, paid sick leave, and fair scheduling- all on this year’s legislative agenda. We’ll get a preview of the pay equity debate from Charly Carter of the non-profit Maryland Working Families, and Mike O’Hallaron of the National Federation of Independent Business.
