This proposal, which specifies measures to try to guarantee this non-existent right even in various countries of the world, was approved with 325 votes in favor and 36 against and must be endorsed in the Senate.

According to the official note from the Chamber of Deputies, the approved text modifies the Consolidation of Labor Laws (CLT) to define that equal pay will be mandatory in Brazil.

"To do this, it establishes the transparency and remuneration mechanisms that companies must follow, determines the increase in inspection and provides for the application of administrative sanctions," the publication points out.

In this sense, the president of the nation Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva appreciated that “the Chamber has just approved, by an absolute majority, the equality of salaries between women and men. An important victory so that, once and for all, we have equal pay for equal work”.

On March 8, when the project was presented by the Government, the president acknowledged that many people want to pay equal wages, "but for that the Justice has to work."

In the same way, he insisted "that when we accept that women earn less than men in the same role, we are perpetuating historical violence."

"Although the approved text innovates by creating the obligation of documentary verification of salary equality, the other rules that define the situations in which inequality can be claimed by the worker continue to be the same as those defined by the labor reform of the Government of Temer ”, limited the note presented by the Chamber of Deputies.
