    The FACTS show that STATISTICALLY...men work longer hours, more weekend hours, and more overtime hours. SHOW ME the actual case in question and if all things are equal, I will join in your outrage.
    The question is rate of pay, not nominal earnings. I'm am not required to post anything for you.....SINCE YOU ALREADY REJECTED ANY LEGISLATIVE REMEDY.

    Why do you require having the same point answered over and over?

    I see...so...I dont agree with you about forcing legislation on the people that create industry and jobs so there is obviously nothing more to talk about. I mean...other than the fact that you are clinging to ginned up outrage over an admittedly false newspaper headline and misquoted comment.

    Where in the legislation is there a "reporting" requirement?

    And who is talking about castrated sheep/goats?

    Wait, let me get this...you are asking me to decide for you that since you don't believe in legislative remedy whether you should continue to "stand by me"...or even talk to me about it?

    What is it.....you cannot decide for yourself?

    Or do you think it is up to me to convince you to change your opinion GENERALLY on legislative remedy?





    I mean...other than the fact that you are clinging to ginned up outrage over an admittedly false newspaper headline and misquoted comment.
    ??

    When I state his words and actions.....where were they "false"?
    Is this a new waste of my time?

    You know that old line "if your friends jumped off a bridge would you do it to?" No...I wont join you in a foolish act to combat what may or may not be a problem. I certainly wont join you in ginned up mock outrage over a deliberately false headline that lied about the actual spoken words of an individual.

    Articles i've read on the topic have indicated that companies will have a reporting requirement. Even if not, though, once an individual that feels she was paid unfairly due to sexism files a complaint, you don't think there will be burdens placed on the company to prove otherwise? For a problem that barely exists... again.. for a potential 5 cent pay difference that may not even be due to sexism.

    Even the democrats admit that there were only a couple of comlaints filed under their equal pay law (that they already have on the books in NH) and they were all dismissed due to it not being discrimanatory.

    You start from a position using false data, you compound by not understanding the legislation.....and now you believe that in fighting job discrimination charges a business should not have to defend itself.

    All I can say is wow.

    The Daily Beast article did not even touch on rates of pay, and business don't have to defend themselves over discrimination....they can default to to the court's mercy.

    Or maybe you are trying to argue that this will create more unwarranted charges? Another rabbit hole for you to explore.

    Even the democrats admit that there were only a couple of comlaints (sic) filed under their equal pay law (that they already have on the books in NH) and they were all dismissed due to it not being discrimanatory. (sic)
    Of course, I totally believe that this is true.

    No, democrats are the ones to start from a position of false data. The 77 cent figure that democrats use has been proven false again and again. Yet, Obama and the governor of NH (and many others) still continue to use oit to proclaim that equal pay laws are needed.

    Of course, I totally believe that this is true.
    No, I don't suspect that you will.. So, let's provide a cite, then you can claim some other excuse for why it's not accurate.

    State House Memo: Equal Pay Law works in New Hampshire but we can make it clearer | Concord Monitor

    New Hampshire has required equal pay since 1947,
    In fact, there have been no convictions I can find under our state equal pay statute over the last 20 years. But that doesn’t mean I think we have all the data we need to ensure our commitment to pay fairness.
    The Labor Department knows of only three investigations in the past 20 years, all of which were dismissed when employers showed legitimate reasons for a disparity in pay between employees.
    Here, allow me to help you with your excuse making:
    Oh, it's so awful, they just don't keep good records... Of course there have been hundreds of companies in NH that have been found guilty. We all know it to be true. After all, it's 77 cents on the dollar.. It has to be illegal.

    Regardless of anything else, what the legislator in the op stated was accurate. What you and other left leaning organizations are attempting to do is to fan the flams of "republican's war on woman" by completely misrepresenting what he stated. You're being hoodwinked.
