    One Day After Announcing Wage Gap Plan, Report Shows Men Are Paid More Than Women in Kamala Harris' Office

    Senator Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) may have wanted to check the books in her own office before announcing her strict plan to end the “wage gap” if she becomes president.

    As IJR reported on Monday, Harris announced a strict plan that aims to close the wage gap in the United States. The senator’s presidential proposal would require that businesses provide their payroll to the federal government. Employees in the same position must be paid the same unless the company can prove significant differences in seniority or merit.

    If a company can’t meet the threshold of justification for their wage differences, they will face massive fines — a point Harris bragged about repeatedly.

    That is fine, but if her staff is still using plastic straws she should publicly apologize and exit the liberal road race to elections.

    "significant differences in seniority or merit."
    In most companies this shows in different titles. Senior Principle Engineer > Principle Engineer > Senior Engineer.
    Where this will be ignored is when women with only a 4 year engineering degree and no experience are started at a higher salary than a man with a master's in engineering and 4 years of total internship experience.
    It is a fact that the average pay for a single women with a 4 year degree, regardless the degree, is higher than a single man with a 4 year degree.

    She's gonna be the candidate. This is gonna be great. Joltin Joe can't be the candidate because you can't complain about Trump talking about wimmins if your candidate regularly touches them in public. Lizzy won't be because you can't call him a liar and a hypocrite if you're a liar and a hypocrite. Bernie is old and white. Spartacus just has too much baggage.

    No. The person they want is a woman (to go after him for being anti-women) and minority (ditto).

    But she is as dumb as a box of rocks. She will be a footnote. The Geraldine Ferraro of her generation. (50% of NES says, "Geraldine who?")

    Is this irony, or hypocrisy? Which fits better?

    Two peoblems:

    1. Tracking the hundreds of thousands of corporations would create a mess. It will be very inefficient.

    2. I dont want to defend her, but the article didnt mention the pay gap was on the same job, only the pay gap between men and women. You cant compare the CEO of a company to a secretary. Same with the people in her campaign.

    Anyway, anything thet makes that POS look bad is good.

    This stuff is going to bite them in the a$$.

    "SAN FRANCISCO — When Google conducted a study recently to determine whether the company was underpaying women and members of minority groups, it found, to the surprise of just about everyone, that men were paid less money than women for doing similar work."

    The first rule of being a liberal is being a hypocrite.

    You are missing the point. When it does not work, the gubmint will admit that it needs to hire MORE people to implement this scheme.
