as someone that has employed men and women i have never had a man say "that's not part of my job description" over half of the women that i employed have said that. in order for a company to do it's job it sometime requires going the extra few steps. the whole problem is the one's that aren't willing to do it have the biggest mouths when it come to complaining. that's not getting into how often women call in due to sick kids or having their period (yes some call in for that), the men still work, which makes them have more value to the company.
gacpl, my mother would love having you as a son-in-law! According to "MOM" It's the men that are suppose to rule the world, not women. PS... I don't always agree with my mom.
sheran, im not saying it's all women. but it's more of them then you would think. i don't believe men should rule the world either, my head manager in Hinesville was a woman.
There are many variables why men have a slight edge in pay when comparing apples with apples, but can anyone articulate on why Obama continues to lie and tear this nations integrity to pieces while the people who support him and his his policies will hardly criticize him.
USATODAY addressed this issue yesterday in an interesting opinion piece by Glenn Harlan Reynolds titled "Obama's War On White House Women." Read it here:
The opinion piece points out that even Democrats and their allies aren't buying their own party line:
"One clue is that even the Washington Post's Ruth Marcus, generally a reliable Democratic ally, isn't buying the Democrats' "revolting equal-pay demagoguery." Marcus writes:
The level of hyperbole — actually, of demagoguery — that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting. It's entirely understandable, of course: The Senate is up for grabs. Women account for a majority of voters. They tend to favor Democrats. To the extent that women — and in particular, single women — can be motivated to turn out in a midterm election, waving the bloody shirt of unequal pay is smart politics. Fairness is another matter. Since President John F. Kennedy signed the Equal Pay Act in 1963, it has been illegal for employers to pay women less than men for the same work."
The article also quotes a recent Washington Post expose' which reveals "vulnerable Democrats" for their hypocrisy on the issue because they themselves have a gender pay gap in their organizations:
"Sen. Mark Udall of Colorado pays women workers 85 cents for every dollar he pays men.
Sen. Mary Landrieu of Louisiana pays women 88 cents on the dollar.
Sen. Mark Warner of Virginia pays women 75 cents for every dollar he pays a man.
Rep. Gary Peters pays women 67 cents for every dollar that a man makes.
And Sen. Mark Begich of Alaska pays women in his office 82 cents for every dollar that a man makes."
And as the USATODAY article points out:
"The problem is that comparing what all men and all women earn is deceptive. Men tend to choose more jobs that require long hours, or that are dangerous — hence the much higher rate of vocational death among men than women — but that also pay more. Women tend to prefer jobs that offer flexible or shorter hours, and clean indoor conditions.
On this issue - the Dems are grasping at straws, and throwing any potential mud on the wall against the GOP hoping that SOMETHING sticks. The problem is that unless something dramatically GOOD happens between now and November, the Dems are going to take a shellacking at the ballot box. They are desperate.
An Obama lie is the truth to diehard followers of the least transparent Presidential administration in my lifetime.
