Gov. Cuomo is proposing legislation that would prohibit employers from asking job seekers about their salary history.
The idea is to make sure women aren't discriminated against.
Lt, Gov. Kathy Hochul is serving as co-chair for the state's review of the gender wage gap.
She says it could help reduce discrimination.
Local and state officials spoke at an "Equal Pay Day" event, including union members, who say they've faced a wage gap in the past.
