    Oh, and if both parties agree than it is fair pay.

It shall not be an unlawful employment practice under this subchapter for any employer to differentiate upon the basis of sex in determining the amount of the wages or compensation paid or to be paid to employees of such employer if such differentiation is authorized by the provisions of section 206(d) of Title 29 [section 6(d) of the Labor Standards Act of 1938, as amended].
    Sorry, but you're dead wrong. Title VII EXPLICITLY addresses compensation. This whole issue is about people selectively applying statistics to try to create an issue where none exists. Corporations simply don't give a rat's ass about whether you're male or female, they care about how much money you make them. Make them a lot and they will pay you well (as a general rule).

    I don't have a problem with an employer firing someone for discussing wages.

    "and require employers to show that wage differentials between men and women in the same jobs are for a reason other than sex."

    Compensation does not equate salary.

    There are already laws on the books to make the opportunity of equal pay a right of any woman.

    Pay should be based on performance, productivity, and contribution to the bottom line. If a man does a job better, he should be paid more. If a woman does a job better, she should be paid more. The government should stop trying to equalize the sexes and just stick with equalizing the opportunity for anyone in this country to get compensated for his or her work, and leave the "sex" part out of it.
