Obama´s "77 Cents on the Dollar" Debunked
American Spectator, by Natalie deMacedo

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 1/30/2014 5:40:10 AM

Obama won’t give it up. If you also suffered through the State of the Union address, you heard him praise Obamacare, claim he would slash bureaucracy, and of course, fight for income equality. Obama pandered to the ladies, his tone becoming more passionate with every overly emotional word: Today, women make up about half our workforce. But they still make 77 cents for every dollar a man earns. That is wrong, and in 2014, it’s an embarrassment. A woman deserves equal pay for equal work. You have probably heard that statistic—77 cents on the dollar. Speech after speech from the left side of town

Another example of a liberal myth that never dies,no matter how much they recycle it even after it´s been debunked. Last year they were on a rampage about interns getting paid until they figured out they were the worst offenders.

Seems like after every election we hear something about women staffers being paid less than men.

There´s no way a woman first starting a job should get paid the same as a male who´s been at the company 20 years. The left´s big on seniority but that means nothing in this dubious charge.

I´ve shed a tear or two over this discrepancy. It´s usually about the time a female employee or coworker ducks out of work early again ´because my kid went home ill from school.´

Another rarely mentioned reason for any disparity between the pay for men and women has to do with the jobs themselves. Men overwhelmingly work in the most dangerous jobs. In 2010, 92.2% of workplace fatalities were men. Men are the ones working in construction, logging, mining, farming, fishing, etc. All are physically demanding and dangerous which surely commands a higher wage.
But then what´s one more lie from the lying liars.

If facts debunking this myth are so readily available, why do liberals persist on repeating this? However spurious , the claim is another tool in the ´Republican war on women´ meme. It will succeed because LoFos will never bother to look under the surface.

Since women who stay at home with children ARE figured in as earning nothing when doing statistics on women’s pay vs. that of men, and therefore make the difference bigger, I wonder why those who have dropped out of the workforce “because there are no jobs” are NOT counted in the unemployed number?

The ´77 cents on the dollar´ myth persists because it´s part of the way Liberal relativists have defined their world. Global warming has become part of it, too; and though both have been shown over and over to be fraudulent and incorrect, both retain almost religious-tenet status with the MSM and the rest of the Left.

If the Dems were really interested, they could start by paying the women on their OWN STAFFS the same money.

Of course that would mean that they mean anything except their own power.

I´m on the job hunt and in scouring career and interviewing sites, the ones that are more geared toward women indicate that women often fail to negotiate strongly enough for salary and benefits. One example from a hiring manager was that at the $50+k level, women routinely leave $10-15 thousand on the table compared to men in package negotiation leading to wage disparity for a man and woman in the equivalent positions. If that´s accurate, it´s 20-30% less right there.

I have worked at several big companies where women are paid "equal" for the same engineering job. In most cases they were paid more due to the female affirmative type action craze. Throughout my whole career, except for two women, they never work late, didn´t really understand how to do the job, don´t care to learn, one of the males has to give the females step by step instructions, and they never care to remember the instructions the next time the need to use them, what they learned at college/engineering school was totally forgotten, they frequently become the master of one of the easy but boring tasks and never leave that cubby hole for any other more complicated work assignment, and if they get one they pass all of it off to the men. The two exceptions were excellent and deserved equal pay and got it. All the rest dropped hardware engineering and moved into one of the easier aspects of computer programming. And if a tricky bit of code needed to be written - once again the men had to step in.

The other thing that happened often was that after one baby, they never came back to work. A decision which I fully support morally. But the reality was, it was a decision that,(except for one time) led to an improvement in our work force.

The 77% statistic comes from comparing all men´s earnings to all women´s earnings. This is not even an hour to hour comparison. Nor is it and equal skilled or equal work comparison. It is a yearly total compensation comparison.

So this means they are comparing a male lawyer who works 60 hours per week to a female waitress who works part time.

Politicians love to make sweeping, simplified statements out of complex issues in order to further their agenda. This (as well as most economic issues) is a perfect example. They say what they want and to the average low information citizen, this stuff makes sense. People who do not understand the complex issues and the many variables that need to be taken into account are easily swayed by these propagandizing politicians and pundits. This is why so many people think socialism makes sense. This is why so many people believe the right is racist, misogynist, and homophobic. This is why so many people believe all the lies told to them after years of indoctrination through the school system, institutions and the destruction of the nuclear family unit, as well as the removal of God from our society. In a high-tech, mass media, mass-information (overwhelming), instant-gratification society as we have built, it is so easy to persuade people with simplistic sound bites that seem to make perfect sense. Our society is doomed precisely because there is both too much information and not enough information and absolutely NO incentive for people to look for the truth. The ONLY way we can save our country and society is for every single one of us to put ourselves out there and educate the public one person at a time, if need be. It is incumbent upon each and every one of us to teach others about history, economics and critical, rational thinking. We cannot afford to wait for someone else to do it for us. We cannot afford to wait to be saved--it won´t happen

My oldest sister has been an engineer in the oil industry in Alaska, Colorado and Texas. So has her husband.

She has always made exactly what everyone else in her pay grade makes, male or female. Her husband works for the same company, and save for a promotion she would get prior to him moving up, and vice-versa, they pretty much made the same amount for the last TWENTY YEARS. Whenever I ask her about this "income equality"--she in a job that is 95% male, she laughs and says, "I know alot of women that simply would not work as hard as the people on my team, so they don´t make as much!"

My other sister has her own business, has 40 people working for her, and does not pay her female employees any less than the males. They are all consultants and all get paid the same. How many women-owned or managed businesses are there now? They would ALL have to be "in on it" to be paying women a generally lower salary. How could that be.

Liberals. They all need a stamp on the forehead that reads "stupid". Then we would all know.

The fact that there are any men employed is enough evidence to debunk this myth. If a company can get equal work for 33% less in wages, they would hire the less expensive worker.

Washington -- Louisiana Democrat Sen. Mary Landrieu is in the middle of a storm.

WASHINGTON — The case of Farrah Fawcett’s missing portrait is getting a redo.

Fawcett was 62 when she died of cancer in 2009 and she bequeathed all her artwork, including her own creations, to the University of Texas at Austin, where she studied art in the1960s.

Obama program aims to reduce

President Barack Obama is attempting to lower the rate of “births” — and separately, pregnancies — among blacks and Latinos. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention lists reducing “births” as one of the top goals of Obama’s “Teen Pregnancy Prevention Initiative.” The language on the CDC’s website makes clear that the program seeks to reduce the rate of both pregnancies and “births” among minorities. Specifically, the CDC says the “purpose of this program is to demonstrate the effectiveness of innovative, multicomponent, communitywide initiatives in reducing rates of teen pregnancy and births in communities with the highest rates, with a focus on reaching

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

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

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem.

David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

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

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast
