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?!

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 ?

NATO announced Wednesday that it is enhancing its military footprint on its eastern flank, and the alliance’s top military commander in Europe hinted that in light of Russia’s recent aggression, it is “important that we take a pause and determine what is appropriate for [the size of] U.S. forces in Europe.” The number of U.S. troops in Europe has dropped dramatically since the Soviet Union collapsed. More recently, the Obama administration has touted its “pivot” to Asia. Supreme Allied Commander Europe Gen. Philip Breedlove, a U.S. Air Force general, was asked if the number of U.S. forces stationed in Europe should

With total student loans exceeding $1 trillion, one must ask “is the tassel worth the financial hassle” when it comes to spending for prestigious colleges. Here’s my rough rule of thumb for taking on student loan debt: “Think long and hard about taking on more in total student loans than you expect to earn, on average, in your first 10 years after graduating.” That’s a mouthful so let me put some numbers on it. If you expect your average annual income over the first 10 years you are out of school to be $50,000, be really, really careful about taking

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Vice President Joe Biden really did get ahead of President Barack Obama on accepting gay marriage in 2012 — and the White House really wasn’t happy about it, despite the two leaders’ many attempts to claim otherwise. That’s the story laid out in Jo Becker’s new book, “Forcing the Spring,” which documents the past few years of successful efforts to expand the legalization of gay marriage, according to an advance copy obtained by POLITICO. Speculation that Biden’s comments on “Meet the Press” in May 2012 were meant as a trial balloon, Becker writes, came from people “not privy to the

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

President Obama said Wednesday that Russia realizes the U.S. military is “significantly superior” to its own and does not want war with the United States. Asked in an interview with CBS News about a Russian fighter buzzing a U.S. Navy ship in the Black Sea on Saturday, Obama said, “They’re not interested in any kind of military confrontation with us, understanding that our conventional forces are significantly superior to the Russians.” Obama accused Russian President Vladimir Putin of being behind uprisings in Ukraine in which government buildings have been taken over.

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively
