thesharkboy's faith in the market will not be shaken by facts!
As usual, the question is this. If women are so poorly paid, why wouldn’t everyone with an opening hire a woman over an equally qualified man and save money?Hmmm, it's almost as if the demand for women isn't as high as it is for men...how cold that be? Dilbert San Diego knows there's a law, so problem solved!
The Equal Pay Act of 1963 bans discrimination in pay between men and women in the same jobs. So, if Obama really thinks that there is a major problem with women not being paid on a par with men in the workplace, he and Eric Holder already have laws and legal actions on their side, to pursue lawsuits, and any other remedies, that they feel are necessary. Since this “discrimination” which Obama bemoans is already against the law, and if he really feels this is a major problem, then why doesn’t he direct the Justice Department to do something about this problem???Chode seems a happy sort:
everybody when offered a job is ALSO offered a wage, if you accept it, sit down, shut the hell up, and DO YOUR DAMN JOB!!!Repeat Offender knows men are oppressed, so it's only fair to pay women less:
hopefully in the spirit of equality he mentioned men are going to be given equal bearing in custody battles and abortion decisions right? Right? Anybody?MrB knows when Obama means equal pay, he means Communism:
equal “pay”, regardless of time in the workforce, experience, effort, number of days you show up per year, or your contribution to the revenue of the employer. That’s what he means. Yes, he IS a Marxist.JustSayNoToNannies would need a citation anywhere else, but here...
Among young professionals, women are paid more than men. Facts are stubborn things.
