Reid says Democrats will
continue fight for equal
pay for women

The Hill [Washington DC], by Ramsey Cox

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 1/29/2013 5:58:14 PM

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said Tuesday that fair pay for women will continue to be a top priority for Senate Democrats during this Congress. “Women make up nearly half of the American workforce,” Reid said on the Senate floor Tuesday. “Yet women bring home 77 cent for every dollar their male colleagues earn. ... It’s unfair.” Reid highlighted the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, which was the first bill President Obama signed into law nearly four years ago, but added that it isn’t enough because women are still not earning the same wages as men.

Why are the women in the Obama White House paid less than men?

Suggestion for Reid: Put Sen Menendez in charge of that.

Yes, #1, And why are the republican senators not asking Reid that question?

The democrats never fail to raise issues that they know will make them look like they care, and the republicans sit silent.

News media will joyfully announce that the democrats are the party fighting for women.

I don´t know a single business owner who doesn´t pay top wages to top producers.

I don´t know a single business owner who forces employees to continue employment with them if they are dissatisfied with their wages or working conditions.

I don´t know a single male or female producer who isn´t highly recruited for top wages or cannot leave company A for a higher wage in company B.

The result in this latest outrage - as with ALL liberal policy is that it is going to hurt more women than help as business owners come to terms that hiring a woman is more liability than reward. You may be able to force large corporations into quotas - but the other 70% of small business owners with jobs to offer might realize (if they haven´t already) that even before they step foot into court they already stand guilty of sexual harassment and wage discrimination and burden of proof is all theirs.

This is one of those outrageous narratives pushed by liberals that is completely false. There is virtually no place of employment where equally qualified males and females doing the same work draw different salaries. What is true is that more women choose lower paying occupations, and that is their right. Dems know they can´t change that, but they can continue to demagogue the issue.

Reid should start with the White House and then move on to the media. Does ABC, NBC, CBS and the New York Times pay women equally? I will bet not.

Isn´t this the same argument that Dems made in the 1970s? The only area where there may be some distinction are with CEOs, CFOs, and other highly skilled, almost celebrity level business people (Trump vs. Ivana). This is a Trojan horse by the Dems to invent stuff to make women angry. At this point, people are just happy to have a job.

Another bogus crisis to whip up discontent at the republicans for not accepting a "feel good" bill that will do nothing but level more expenses on companies, a new bill to hang new redistribution goodies from and show the "stupid, low information" women, how much democrats care.

#8, funny thing is people like to hear that you´re "fighting for them", which is why Dems are always saying it.

They are still playing "little ball" and working the margins which is where they´ll pick up pockets of groups of constituents.

Republicans think there´s a time to stop campaigning, and govern.
Democrats just keep on campaigning.

1) As mentioned several times above: check out 0bama´s pay scales.

2) In all the decades of "women earn $.77 for every $1 men earn," I have never seen a list of company names and the names of the woman and man who are working the same job at disparate wages.

What I have seen over the years is 1) a "comparison" of women clerks earning less than men dockworkers or truck drivers 2) comparing longevity of a man working 50 hours a week with a woman who took maternity leave or working 35 hours a week to be home after school. Apples and oranges.

As poster 5 so ably stated, business owners aren´t stupid, they pay for the productivity of each employee...or the employee--male or female--moves on to another employer who will pay more.

If employers only had to pay women 77% of what they pay men, than the male unemployment rate would be double the female unemployment rate.

RIGHT, DINGY HARRY?!

Good point, #22. Seriously, shouldn´t those doing, heavy, nasty, dangerous jobs get paid more than someone in a nice, clean office doing clerical work? How many women want to do heavy, nasty, dangerous jobs?

Hairy, focus. You haven´t passed a budget in years.

Does this mean that if women get equal pay they will no longer get the perks of minorities ? What happened to the Lily Ledbetter Act ? All talk and no action ? Another failed Zippy policy ?

Last year employees at the federal office in charge of implementing Obamacare were given raises despite the massive failures of the rollout of the president´s takeover of our healthcare system. A recent Freedom of Information Act request made by the Washington Examiner discovered that employees of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) were paid substantially more in 2013 compared to their 2012 salaries. The CMS is Obama´s "ground zero in launching and managing Obamacare." The Examiner found that the payroll total for 2013 was $76 million, up from $69 million the previous year.

Given the current state of the USA, Republicans should be winning every election from Seattle to Key West. The economy hasn’t moved for years with the labor participation rate at record lows — people have given up – and bankruptcy over entitlements looming. The international situation is in free fall with China becoming the global power, Iran making a mockery of faux negotiations and Putin on the way to reconstituting the Soviet Union. Al Qaeda is not only alive, it’s growing. (GM is dead.) Optimism about our country is in the proverbial toilet. More Americans feel threatened by their own

The age 21 rule sets the United States apart from all advanced Western nations, and it has pushed kids toward pills and other anti-social behavior. The National Minimum Drinking Age Act, passed by Congress 30 years ago this July, is a gross violation of civil liberties and must be repealed. It is absurd and unjust that young Americans can vote, marry, enter contracts, and serve in the military at 18 but cannot buy an alcoholic drink in a bar or restaurant. The age 21 rule sets the United States apart from all advanced Western nations and lumps it with small

Public Trust: Sixty-one percent polled say President Obama lies "some of the time" or "most of the time" on matters of national importance. Americans have to ask: Why do we let him get away with it? It´s no surprise that a Fox News poll of 1,012 registered voters last week found immense distrust of a president whose main domestic initiative was based on a lie. The shock is that the same poll found his disapproval level down to its lowest since last fall. Asked, "How often do you think Barack Obama lies to the country on important matters?" 37% replied "most of

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning
