1. Equal Pay
It's no secret that women are paid less than men for doing the same job. Women have been protesting for higher wages for decades and despite the fact that it has gotten slightly better, the wage gap is still a problem.
Since April 2018 the government in Ontario is taking steps to emliminate this problem by enstating the Pay Equity Act and the Employment Standards Act, 2000. These acts state that women and men must be paid equally for doing "equal work." In this fact sheet about the wage gap, they state that a couple ways to fix the wage gap are to help women get into STEM careers and to "Recognize gender stereotypes that reinforce notions of 'appropriate' work for men and women." The Ontario Equal Pay Coalition says that the first step to close the wage gap is to "treat closing the gap as a human rights priority."
Companies would also benefit from closing the wage gap in other ways. Women make up half of the talent pool. They are more willing to work for places that don't have as much of a wage gap, if any at all. Also stated in the fact sheet, closing the wage gap would boost the economy. More people could start working if the wages were more fair which would increase the revenue from taxes and could also help clear national debt.
