women vote for obama, pretty overwhelmingly. one thing they really like is to do is grill candidates about equal pay fr equal work. this leads me to a couple questions: male pornstars make significantly less. is this legal? same with male models. the WNBA players make significantly less money than the nba players. is this illegal? they are doing the exact same jobs? short people make significantly less than tall people, perhaps to an even larger extent than women. should this be illegal? can i for instance, hire 5 dudes, then realize i can hire another dude, but i cant afford to pay him as much, can i hire that dude if he is willing to work, and he cant sue me, unless she is a chick? because this dude or chick will not make as much as the others. but he/she still will take the job. ledbetter sued because she found that men working with her had made far more. why didnt she just negotiate a better salary or work somewhere else if she was worth more? why did her company even let her know what the men were making? if the case goes to court, shouldnt the company just be able to tell everyone to fuck off and that their salary information is private? why is the government controlling prices yet again? if i buy an item on ebay, and a women buys the same item for less, can i sue? can i sue because i have to pay to get into a bar and ladies do not on ladies night? why not? the fact is that salaries are contracts are private matters, none of anyone elses business. if you sign a contract, thats your own stupidity if you get paid less. you sue when you sign a contract and the other party doesnt honor it. also the equal pay acts have not worked at all, obviously, women still get paid way less. this is another issue that stupid people use against political candidates. if you are a candidate the smart choice is just to not answer, because people are morons and honesty only hurts you.
