JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - The City of Jackson wants to make sure women are receiving the same pay as men.

Tuesday, Councilman De’Keither Stamps introduced the ordinance called the Compensation of Personal and Application Content for Employment.

He hopes to stop hiring practices on the local level that he says economically disadvantage women in the application process.

"As a body have to just pause for second and think about the trials. Sometimes, you have to just pause for second and just listen.>

Stamps says the full city council will vote on the measure within two weeks.
