Philadelphia will soon ban employers from asking job applicants for their salary history.
Supporters have argued such questions perpetuate pay discrimination against women and minorities.
Councilman Bill Greenlee, a Democrat who sponsored the legislation, told The Philadelphia Inquirer "it's about fairness."
He said employers should base the salary offer on what the job is worth and what experience the applicant brings.
A spokesman for Mayor Jim Kenney said he will sign it into law.
