What’s a disgrace is Sen Sanders. I used to think he was sincere but naive, now I’m not so sure. Is he just uninformed or just another political opportunist who seeks power through creating division in America?
Hey Bernie, it’s been illegal to pay men more than women in the US for fifty-five years. 🤪
What does equal pay actually mean and why is there no such thing in reality. Try this post for some ideas.
President Kennedy signed the Equal Pay Act in 1963. It made it illegal to pay a woman less than a man while doing the same job. Sanders data above has little to do with discrimination but rather many complicated factors that are not going to change by laws. Surely even Sanders does not propose equal pay without regard to experience, skill, results, etc. Or does he? He certainly appears to ignore facts that don’t fit his ideology. Promoting this misleading information is dangerous‼️
Here is what the Equal Pay Act says. It appears Iceland is 55 years behind the US.
SEC. 206. [Section 6]
(d) Prohibition of sex discrimination
(1) No employer having employees subject to any provisions of this section shall discriminate, within any establishment in which such employees are employed, between employees on the basis of sex by paying wages to employees in such establishment at a rate less than the rate at which he pays wages to employees of the opposite sex in such establishment for equal work on jobs the performance of which requires equal skill, effort, and responsibility, and which are performed under similar working conditions, except where such payment is made pursuant to (i) a seniority system; (ii) a merit system; (iii) a system which measures earnings by quantity or quality of production; or (iv) a differential based on any other factor other than sex: Provided, That an employer who is paying a wage rate differential in violation of this subsection shall not, in order to comply with the provisions of this subsection, reduce the wage rate of any employee.
Hey Senator Sanders, could this have anything to do with it?<a href=”https://statisticalatlas.com/United-States/Educational-Attainment”>
