Utah has one of the largest gender wage gaps in the nation. On average, women make 30 percent less than their male counterparts. To address this disparity, the Utah Legislature has authorized the Women in the Economy Commission, comprised of elected officials, academics and business leaders. Nick welcomes Commission co-chairs, outgoing House Speaker Becky Lockhart and outgoing House minority leader Rep. Jen Seelig. They discuss challenges and solutions to closing the wage gap and providing opportunity for all Utahns.
