Women do get paid less than men in general -
100 years ago, Women got paid 5 times less than men on average for doing the same job.
Today I believe it is near 30%
It is my opinion that if women could magically make as much as men overnight, our
economy would be better off. They would have more to spend, which would increase
sales and a need for more employees, etc. I think women should be paid the same if
their performance merits it and in many cases I think that is the case.
Women are beautiful and hard working just like the rest of us, I like women
These stats always baffle me. Nowhere I have worked do women get paid less than men for the same job and performance. Maybe it is only in tiny companies where this happens. For 20 years in the workforce, nearly every job is on structured salary, with raises based on performance ratings, or commissions. I seriously would like to know where this pay inequality happens.

Seabag, you don't expect liberals to live by the laws and rules they dictate, do you?
We have pay disparity between the sexes. Okay for them, but if you do it, you're a hater.
We have the gun issues (it's okay for their bodyguards, but your family should get shot!)
Food, cars, homes, carbon footprints, taxes, drug testing, interns, . . . . . .
Hypocrisy, thy name is democrat.

Out of sheer curiosity...how would you know how much everyone gets paid. I work in an office of four people and have no clue how much anyone gets paid. It is against most companies policies and a general rule of etiquette to not talk about salary. Unless you were in payroll, how did you gain all this information at every place you ever worked at?

Listen to this fool try to change the subject and deflect it back on his accuser. A tactic taught to lefties straight out of Saul alinsky's Rules for Radicals.
I think you fail to realize Seabag's response. This is important but not the most critical. If you try to fix this the house of cards starts to tumble. I understand women deserve equal pay for the same work and some do get it. However, no one is holding her to a job. She can leave for more pay like any man does. If he or she is comfortable than it is their issue. Let the law makers focus on the more critical issues like security and commerce. We as a people are not paying attention to the signs of a failing systems. You are too wrapped up on your agendas or sheeple being sent to the slaughter. Focus on the major things and allow stuff like this to work itself out is all i see.
