New Jersey Wage Discrimination Act.

New Jersey Anti-Wage Discrimination Act, 1952
Source, Laws of New Jersey, 1952, Chapter 34, Section 11, 56

This act prohibited discrimination “in any way in the rate or method of payment of wages to any employee because of his or her sex.”  A major step forward, the act sought to correct wage discrepancies between female and male workers.  It did not cover many female workers, however, because it did not apply to farm workers or women working in hotels or domestic services. Republican Assemblywoman Florence Dwyer of Elizabeth sponsored the act.
