In news from Europe, around 20,000 people marched in the Swiss capital of Bern on Saturday demanding equal pay for women and protesting against discrimination. The protest came as the Swiss parliament is considering legislation to require all companies with more than 100 workers to analyze pay rates to ensure there is no discrimination between the salaries of men and women. Swiss protesters vowed more demonstrations if salary inequality continues.
Jacqueline Ricciardi Werlen: “I think the message is pretty clear. As long as we don’t have salary equality, as long as no sanctions are being taken or no control made regarding salary equality, we will go out on the streets.”
