Re: McCain opposes equal pay bill in Senate
We already have sex discrimination laws in the workplace, for sex, race, religion,
This is just another trial lawyer pushed bill to allow for more lawsuits.
Women sue for this now, if they wish to.
It happens all the time now, didn't they have a big lawsuit against
Walmart w/that last year? Which the women won.
Good for McCain.
When does the free marketplace ever get to be a free marketplace?
Women make up over half the workforce now don't they?
Which is why it is being held up so Obama and Hillary can use it as a campaign
platform. When neither could bother to vote on other issues, that the Congress
has held up, or just skipped over. Like NSA legislation. Pelosi used tricks to
put that vote aside indefinitely, until after the election. So, neither Hillary
or Obama would have to put a vote on the record for it again.
Women make less than men - in most cases - because they do take more time off
for children, to have children, to care for family. Also, many go in and out
of the workforce. As well as most women do not enter into all male oriented
fields as much. Though, that is changing.
I think that deters many employers from hiring a woman over a man in the first
place....will she leave to have children after we train and employ her for 2 or
3 years...and then she's off 1 year or so..... That does deter women moving up,
in my view, in some cases.
The legal field shows how women do make money, more than anything else, where women make up the
majority of law students. In time, they will make more money overall. Ditto for teaching,
where most administration positions are held by the women, not the men.
McCain is right to not support it.
It's for show, and trial lawyers.
We already have laws in place for this.
