Equal pay for women is a joke. It's a complete non-issue
Every politicial babbles on about how women should receive equal pay. Fact is it is nothing more than a bunch of hot air.
For one thing women DO get paid the same as men do. Check it out some time. Where can you say that women are not paid at least the same amount that men are for similar work?
In many cases I see some of the women need help that they don't seem to give their male counterparts.
Fortunately most of the women I see are fairly competent and actually deserve the equality. However this is not always the case.
Still, as far as I can see on a day to day basis it is no longer an issue. It's a bunch of thin smoke and dull mirrors.
Politicians that say they'll fight for equal pay for equal work sound like they are saying they'll fight for the right to buy milk in gallon containers. Or that they'll support allowing us to buy bread by the loaf or eggs by the dozen.
In short, who are they kidding?
Actually I believe that this is pretty true as far as all minorities go. I don't really see a whole lot of employers not hiring someone hiring on the basis of minority status. Virtually all employers generally hire on the basis of the person's individual skills.
In fact, when you get down to it, most employers would rather hire a minority than a white because it makes the company look good.
I wish this particular issue would simply go away because it is nothing more or less than a problem that was solved years ago.
The only reason is actually still exists is to give politicians an issue to put in front of the general public that really isn't paying attention to begin with.
It looks to me that the only people that gripe about it are the people that don't have any skills to begin with.
Then again I support allowing employers to pay any wage to anyone that they want and for that matter hiring who they want. While you're at it doing business with who they want. It's called liberty and sometimes it's a bitch.
