    There is a small disparity in pay

    Approx 92 cents when comparing job for job, and experience for experience

    All of that can be attributed to women not negotiating starting pay like men do

    But this law went too far....training them to negotiate is fine

    But this law would be an open invitation to lawsuit after lawsuit

    That business doesn't need

    Calling me dishonest, which even GOP Senators don't agree with, doesn't change the FACT that women are paid less than men for the same job .
    Do you understand what I meant when I said people are interpreting the data dishonestly? Looking at the total amount paid and ignoring all the factors that go into someones pay to determine that women are paid less is dishonest and frankly stupid.

    Perhaps this is news to you, but it is the female that bears children. Often the woman acts as mother to the child and removes herself from the workforce for an extended time. That tends to lessen her experience when compared to the male who didn't leave the workforce. That that said, there are places that intentionally pay women less like the leftist New York Times or the Obama Administration.

    He doesn't care. He is desperate to trot out any garbage that might help his pathetic party cling to power. It will only get worse in the next 50 days. The left still has to do something to get their blacks all worked up and out to the polls. So the 'republicans want to return to slave days' mantra cant be too far off.
