    Just ridiculous. Unequal pay for equal work is one of the biggest problems facing this country.

    Maybe...of course almost anything proposed by Obama seems to come down to a strict party vote.

    At the end of the day it's just bad politics in my opinion by Republicans. They could easily say "yup...this supports competitive market ideals, let information fix any imbalances" and kill the issue for Dems. Instead they are voting against the bill for whatever reason.

    That's supposedly what this bill is about - discrimination in pay (BECAUSE of gender/race).

    wrong-most of the supposed inequality is bogus

    the classic example is a fourth year female associate and Biggs, Bucks and Moore being paid less than a guy who was in her same law class and was hired at the same time.

    sounds unequal until you find out that the female associate took 6 months off for pregnancy and her billable hours over that 4 year period were 1000 less than his

    Title VII provides an adequate remedy for this

    to prevail the plaintiff has to show that

    1) she is female
    2) qualified for the job
    3) was treated differently than a SIMILARLY situated male employee
    4) and the employer does not have a valid non-discriminatory reason for the different treatment

    so they should screw over employers to take the issue away from the deems

    good thinking there
