Calling pay equity not a women's issue but a family issue, President Obama today signed a new bill seeking to end decades-long pay disparities between men and women.

It's about time. The same bill was introduced under Bush's administration and it was turned down.

It was not the same bill. Remember, that people add things to bills to propogate propaganda, and Yes, I am a Democrate who things Bush was as wrong as a car made of pumpkin. But still, you need to understand that bills never are quite the same, when they go through congress, and are rarely clean bills meaning that is the only concern written in them.
The issue may have come to Bush, but the Bill is not the same one, trust me.

I would like a bill signed that says minorities will be paid the wages as non minorities for doing the same job and having the same qualifications. This has been a decades long issue that they will not touch or address. Is there something in the bill that mentions that?

I saw a fairly in depth research paper that actually showed women get paid more than men when you account for the same job title.

Why don't you try not addressing my question if you don't have an answer.

I did answer your question. Just because it wasn't the answer you wanted doesn't mean I didn't answer it.

Are you saying that equal pay for equal work doesn't include everyone?

Why would we need ANOTHER bill to say minorities need to earn the same as non minorities?

"Calling pay equity not a women's issue but a family issue, President Obama today signed a new bill seeking to end decades-long pay disparities between men and women."

It has been long noted that minorities are not paid equal wages compared to non minorities. I stopped reading after the first sentence of the article because obviously it is only addressing men and women and not the disparities that come after gender is noted.

But I won't get into it because obviously two people in this thread have chips on their shoulders and their head in the clouds when it comes to the inequities of this world.

Good day now it's back to work
