Shirley Lin Calls for Pay Equity in Rebuilding the Economy after Pandemic

Shirley Lin (’11), Acting Assistant Professor at NYU School of Law, was quoted by Bloomberg Law’s Daily Labor Report discussing the need for equal-pay laws as the pandemic’s disproportionate impact on women and workers of color exacerbates the pay gap (“Pandemic, Racial Protests Driving New Wave of Pay Equity Bills,” Feb. 16). “It’s clear that the pandemic may erase the gains that women, particularly women of color, have made in recent decades, so stronger equal-pay laws would send a clear message that employers cannot take advantage of the hardships they face in the market.”
