    This already passed their Senate, he is a Republican.

    I'm surprised to see you taking this position.
    Why? I don't have a political party and I've never understood why people care about what some random stupid state senator says. Most state legislators are too stuck up their own ass to realize how pathetic it is they are stuck up their own ass. And what he said wasn't incorrect, just how he said. There is more societal pressure on men to provide financially for their families and men are more likely to take jobs which take them from their family. We can argue all day whether it's right or not, but it won't change the truth of the matter.

    I'm not agreeing with his interpretations nor his vote. I'm simply saying that what he said, while said in an offensive manner, wasn't incorrect.

    If you are referring to his argument on the floor, that is part of his position.

    Why? I don't have a political party and I've never understood why people care about what some random stupid state senator says.
    He is a GOP NH House member, if you don't care....why are you here?

    It is completely incorrect in the CONTEXT OF THE LEGISLATION HE IS DEBATING. Again, it is stupid to argue that equal pay for equal work is not needed....be cause men do "more risky work", or because women are not as motivated.

    Re: GOP lawmaker: 'Men are more motivated' than women

    Funny how the actual words make a difference.

    "men are more motivated by money than women are"

    What do the actual Bureau of Labor and Statistics figures indicate re working hours, weekend work, overtime work, etc.?

    Agreed.

    He made a buck ****ing stupid statement.
    “Now it is not good for the Christian’s health to hustle the Aryan brown,
    For the Christian riles, and the Aryan smiles and he weareth the Christian down;
    And the end of the fight is a tombstone white with the name of the late deceased,
    And the epitaph drear: “A Fool lies here who tried to hustle the East.”

    It is funny, isn't it?

    I'm trying to find that data for NH and I'm not sure where to find it so that it's broken down.

    Funny enough, this is getting virtually no attention here. Nothing on WMUR which is our NH-based ABC affiliate so far. They have been reporting on all of the fires here yesterday from the wind, and talking about the Bruins, an attempted abduction, where you can find the best chicken parm in the state, the new law passed requiring horse owners to pick up horse poop, and fake bibs at the Boston Marathon, but not this. I know some on the left have their undies in a bunch over this, but it isn't even making news right here in our own state.

    It CANT be because of circumstances like career choice, hours dedicated to the career vs the honorable and necessary pursuits of family and motherhood, and any of a number of other factors...right? It must be because the Obama administration discriminates against women.

    ....therefore, when working at the same job, with the same skills and training.....women should not be guaranteed the same rate of pay.

    Meh...its so routine anymore its funny. People have to have something to soil themselves over. And get used to it. This will be Hilliary's campaign cause. Of course...it will be the same Hilary that called women that dared to complain about senator Packwood whiny bitches and that has routinely trashed women her husband ****ed, ****ed over, raped, sexually assaulted, poked, and probed.

    "Cause" is relative to ideation and political bent. And neither side has the market cornered on that front. Both do it. This is just AN example of it.

    In that NYT article, it was shown that women in the same position earn the same as men, the difference is that more women occupy lower level positions, skewing the "average" nominal income levels.

    I know this because I commented in that article.
