Today, Governor Phil Murphy signed his first executive order to support equal pay for women by barring managers in state government from asking job applicants about their previous salary. 

“There’s no reason a women in New Jersey should be making 82 cents to the dollar to a male counterpart for the same work,” said Murphy.

The order is in support of equal pay for women and stretches across all public jobs, Murphy said. The Democrat argued the measure will help close the pay gap between men and women in the state.

"I am honored beyond words to take this step today," Murphy said, with his wife, First Lady Tammy Murphy, by his side.

Murphy added he "would make it state law" if lawmakers in the Democratic-controlled state Legislature sends a bill to his desk that would extend the rule to private businesses. "We don't have to wait to make our economy stronger and fairer, to attack income inequality, and to protect and grow our middle class," Murphy said in his inaugural address.

This is important for the progression towards equal pay across the U.S.  The U.S. is still facing a pay gap that needs to be fixed.  Health Insurance is fair to all.  Regardless of sex or gender, health care is available to all and prices are competitive.
