A bill by Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson (D-Santa Barbara) to close the wage gap that women face at work cleared its final hurdle in the Legislature today, passing off the Senate floor on a bipartisan, unanimous, 40-0 vote. The bill now heads to Governor Jerry Brown’s desk just a few days after his office took the unusual step of announcing the Governor’s support for the bill on Twitter.
