Decent Work

As economic inequality gapes ever wider in the United States, shareholder proponents have turned their attention to fair pay as well as the working conditions provided by companies. Women and people of color continue to earn less than their white male counterparts and the campaign to rectify these differences continues in 2019. (Workplace diversity is covered separately in this report, p. 45.) So far, proponents have filed 37 proposals. As in the last several years (see graph, page 42), most ask for more data on pay disparities. Seven from the New York City pension funds and the trade union consortium Change to Win take up the new issue of the inequitable impact of non-disclosure agreements, while HollyFrontier faces a question about accident prevention.
