• https://www.zerohedge.com

One European country just made it illegal to pay men more than women.

Thanks to a new law, Icelandic firms that employ more than 25 people must obtain a government certificate demonstrating pay equality, under new rules that came into effect on Jan. 1.

Those who fail to prove pay equality will face penalties, including fines, according to the Mirror.

The law was announced on International Women's Day 2017 – which took place on March 8 - as part of the Nordic country's drive to eradicate the gender pay gap by 2022.
