There are few certainties in life, but when it comes to anything to do with equal pay for women, one can bet the Republican party will take a strong stand in favor of fairness. Of course, when Republicans mention the word, “fairness,” they mean we should be fair to those who run corporations. Democrats in the US Senate introduced a bill that called for fairness in pay and “lost”because they were only to persuade 52 to vote for it while 40 opposed. The proposed law would prevent corporations from paying women less than men when both were doing the same job. Rushing to the rescue of women from this horrible idea was Senator Mitch McConnell. He is terribly concerned for women, and once they can earn as much as men, there is only one outcome–they will lose their jobs!
Let the wise man speak: “At the time when the Obama economy is already hurting women so much, this legislation would double down on the problem while lining the pockets of trial lawyers.” If women have the right to sue to obtain equal pay this means the law only benefits trial lawyers. If there is one group Republicans hate it is trial lawyers. Of course, they love trial lawyers who ensure that businessmen never pay high taxes.
