As Texas prepares to elect a new governor there is one issue that seems to overshadow the election. The issue is the gender wage gap and why males in the workplace still outearn females even when they are doing the same job. Both Wendy Davis and Gregg Abbott are committed to improve the paychecks of women, however in different ways. Abbott believes that the laws already provide for equal pay. While, Davis believes that there should be new laws and that the governor shouldn’t be afraid to fight for equal pay no matter a person’s race or gender.
