Pay Equity

The New Brunswick Coalition for Pay Equity is asking each political party to take a stance on implementing pay equity legislation for the private sector. Minister Responsible for the Status of Women Mary Schryer reviewed the liberals actions towards pay equity in a speech, but did not specify the party's position concerning legislation. Opposition M-L-A Margaret Ann Blaney says her party would present its position on the issue in it's electoral platform, and NDP member Julie Michaud says her party is completely in favour of enacting pay equity legislation. The new leader of the provincial Green Party Jack MacDougall says he is in favour of pay equity in all sectors, but needs to consult his party before making an official commitment.
