Starbucks Is Partnering with 25 Employers to Close the U.S. Gender Pay Gap
Posted June 18, 2019
On Equal Pay Day, April 2, Starbucks and 25 other U.S. employers in the Employers for Pay Equity consortium have joined to agree to a shared set of Pay Equity Principles to help eliminate the gender pay gap.
While many agree on the idea of equal pay, the hard work is putting it into practice.
The Employers for Pay Equity is committed to identifying and promoting best practices to ensure fundamental fairness for all workers with U.S. employers.
“The Pay Equity Principles we signed onto today – Equal Footing, Transparency and Accountability – were created not only to help us but also other organizations and businesses seeking to eradicate the pay gap,” said Kevin Johnson, chief executive officer of Starbucks. “While the signatories to the Pay Equity Principles represent different industries facing different challenges to achieving pay equity, we all agree that by working together we can accelerate the elimination of the national pay gap.”
