Relying on women's previous salaries to determine their incomes at new jobs perpetuates longstanding disparities in the wages of men and women and is illegal when it results in higher pay for men, a federal appeals court ruled on Monday, April 9, 2018, in a novel opinion that aims to address the "financial exploitation of working women."
