WI Equal Pay Nixed - 'Money Is More Important For Men'

As Jessica Pieklo reported yesterday, the Governor of Wisconsin, with little notice or discussion, repealed the state’s Equal Pay law. For Scott Walker, it was no doubt the most logical step in his ongoing war on women and the working class, as the Equal Pay Law protected not just women but any protected class.

But for the Republican who was most enthusiastic about rescinding the law, it was really about fairness. After all, according to him, money is more “important” for men.

Over at the Daily Beast, Michelle Goldberg writes a detailed account of the repeal and the effect it will have in the state. Goldberg also interviews Republican state senator Glenn Grothman, who was an enthusiastic fan of repealing the law. According to Grothman, not only is there no actual pay gap between the sexes, if there was one it wouldn’t matter anyway. After all, men need money more than women do, since they have families to support. “You could argue that money is more important for men,” he told Goldberg. “I think a guy in their first job, maybe because they expect to be a breadwinner someday, may be a little more money-conscious. To attribute everything to a so-called bias in the workplace is just not true.”

They just need to man up, grow a pair and quit whining like little girls. coffeetime.gif



chuckle.gif Sorry, of course that's not the way I feel, but couldn't resist. That's actually some REAL discrimination. Maybe they can have a sex war instead of a race war. bored.gif

The sex war has been going on since the birth of feminism but it might be time to escalate things. War on all fronts. Then everybody can fight everybody hmm.gif

Sorta funny eh? When I was doing a 'man's job' a union job, I was making between $60k and $100k/year. Now I'm doing a 'woman's job' cashier at the beer store, and making ~$12k/year. I'm working a ğck of a lot harder as a cashier than I ever did as a silviculturist or scaler. There's no status, you bust your ass for 9 hours and get min wage for 8, you have to be honest, smart, suck up to the customers whether they're assholes or not, money smart, and you never sit down. The physical jobs I've had (tree spacer comes to mind) were duck soup compared to this because not only do you bust your ass, you have to be thinking every moment. Each day I throw around at least 100 24 packs of beer, thursday it'll be 360 of them. That's physical. The women I work with could work most men to a standstill.

It's true, the lowest paying jobs are sometimes the most demanding. Did my share of gruntwork, most thankless bunch of psychopaths aside from those in government are grunt supervisors.
