Pay Gap Claptrap


It would seem that Nancy Pelosi wants to fix the pay gap “problem”

On Wednesday, Speaker of the House Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) spoke about the alleged “wage gap” while delivering a speech on the floor of the House of Representatives regarding the “Paycheck Fairness Act.”

“Now, we’re proud to pass this bill before “Equal Pay Day,” which is on April 2, next week … which symbolizes when women’s wages catch up to a man’s earnings from the previous year. So, in other words, for the first three months of the year, most women are working for free compared to what a man will make in the overall year…”

CNBC reports that the bill would force companies to justify to the Department of Labor any disparities between salaries paid to male and female employees.

Of course, around these parts, we all know the real story.  A whole host of legitimate factors often work together to make women’s pay less, be it less seniority, desire for less or more convenient hours, etc.  Apparently, reality doesn’t matter to these people.

Fortunately this bill doesn’t have a chance to become law at this time, as the Senate and President are in the way.  But what if it did become law?  How might things play out?

Employers would be under the gun to publish statistics that show no disparity. If one does not want to fake the statistics, then one needs to make sure that there isn’t a disparity.  This is not looking good, is it?  Women with less seniority/skills/experience would be paid more than perviously; they might receive what is effectively free overtime, and so on.  Basically, any way to boost their pay artificially for the sake of stats will happen.

How might the fellas react to all of this?  Probably not well.  Already, women get lots of goodies at the workplace, now there is more.  A natural reaction is to withdraw, work less, engage less; go home and do your own thing irrespective of the BS at work.

If one wants to add to the disincentives for men to work hard, it is difficult to imagine how this scheme could be improved upon.

    No what they want is to pay women the same amount for doing less work. It’s not about equality at all but propping up the fact that women don’t work as much or as hard or as dangerous jobs as men…because they are not made to be all about having a career.

    “The cornerstone (or foundation stone or setting stone) is the first stone set in the construction of a masonry foundation, important since all other stones will be set in reference to this stone, thus determining the position of the entire structure.” (wikipedia)

    everything has a cornerstone that determines the course of the rest of that thing. Easter is such a big deal because it represents the cornerstone of Christianity. Jesus came to earth through the virgin, Mary, conceived by God, Himself. He was fully human and fully God. He lived a perfect life – never once doing anything wrong. Then He offered Himself as the sacrifice for all the sins of the world forever. If He would have stayed dead, there would be no Christianity because God would not be real. But He didn’t stay dead. He rose from death, from the grave, walked the earth once again, and then ascended into heaven and yet remains fully accessible through the Holy Spirit.

    “He is alive” means Jesus, who was fully God, is alive. so therefore God is alive. He is not and never has been a dead God or a temporary God or someone who wandered the earth for a period of time and left behind wisdom to pass on. those who not only believe (for even the demons believe in Jesus) but also choose to follow Jesus with their whole heart and soul become Christians, Christ-followers, disciples of Christ. in our humanity we still screw up, a lot, and still need a lot of forgiveness. but we no longer live for ourselves; we life for our Leader, our God. Easter celebrates the time that Jesus rose from death, from the grave, proving that death has no hold on God and God is bigger than even death.

    thought i’d share why easter is such a big deal for those who may not know … thank you for indulging me 🙂

    Yes, it is. But you see that guys typically work more overtime, don’t take years off to raise kids (losing seniority), work harder to get promoted, etc.

    We have to compensate for all of that. “Even stuff out” if you will.

    Farm Boy – define ‘obviously bad’ … already we have our cities being overrun by immigrants who bring no benefit or anything positive to our country … they are a drain on our resources … they invade the space of legal citizens … they bring in criminals who have done terrible, terrible things to our citizens … and that’s just what we have been informed about publicly.

    … Nancy Pelosi spoke about the alleged “wage gap” …

    There is no wage gap. There is an earnings gap.

    As has been referenced already, there are already laws on the books requiring equal pay for equal work (Equal Pay Act of 1963). Examining compliance with those laws would perhaps reveal a wage gap in those organizations that disregard the laws. But the orgnization would soon be punished and that discrepancy would disappear at that organization, for a time anyway.

    But what the surveys measure are average earnings. I don’t finish high school and work at a gas station. You get all the way through medical school and work at self-employed as a doctor. Ya think there will be any difference in our earnings? Ya think we should pass laws that require our earnings to be equal? If such a law passed, ya think we would soon have too many gas station attendants and not enough doctors?

    Except that such a situation will not develop. Comparable worth studies, or equal pay for equal worth analysis, would never conclude that the worth of a gas station attendant is the same as the worth of a doctor, and so they should be paid the same.

    And that will be the flaw of any bill such as Pelosi’s, if one should ever pass. The scrutiny required by such a bill would soon uncover the truth of my last paragraph above, and put the lie to the idea that there is a wage gap. And if such a thing happened, discovering there is an earnings gap rather than a wage gap, how could politicians use that as an issue to get folks to vote for them?

    Nancy is pandering to the uninformed, rather than educating them to the truth. And that is pretty much at the top of things I dislike. I prefer to help the uninformed become better informed. Not so the politicians. For how can they lead people who can lead themselves?

Says senior staff are bonused on demographic breakdowns of their staffs, based on this discrimination, not the actual productivity of staff.

    It will be interesting to watch what happens to her after she’s outed by a mob and accused of creating a hostile environment — accused of bigotry for opposing bigotry. It appears she even touched the third rail that got the guy (James Damore) fired from Google: that there simply aren’t enough qualified engineers that also qualify for the intersectional Olympics, and this is a function of female preference.

    “Does Microsoft have any plans to end the current policy that financially incentivizes discriminatory hiring practices?

Because it’s a fairly mediocre place with a shrinking student body, faculty are completely cowed and no one is complaining or suggesting that there are other ways to save money that don’t attack the very foundation of the educational mission.

    Yale has an 80,000 volume sub-library at one of the residential colleges, and they just announced they were cutting in half. Students protested that one, so now they’re going to cut it by 25%. Yale’s endowment is $29.5 billion, and the after-tax cost for four years there is $300K.

    NEW YORK, NY—A protester yelling into a megaphone on International Women’s Day suddenly realized she was reinforcing the “oppressive and harmful” social construct of gender by promoting a day that implies gender is inherently meaningful, sources confirmed Wednesday.

    Midway through screaming the phrase “Down with the patriarchy!” into the loudspeaker, the woman suddenly stopped and thought about how her presence at the protest suggested that the concept of womanhood represented something more significant than an arbitrary social construct foisted upon females.

    “Wait a minute, think about what we’re suggesting here,” the woman said to her fellow demonstrators as she lowered her megaphone, according to witnesses. “By participating in this protest, aren’t we suggesting that ‘man’ and ‘woman’ are ideals that transcend culture and subjectivity?”

    “What have we done?!” she added.

    The woman then called for the protest to be paused in order to rationally discuss the perceived inconsistency in the protesters’ deep-seated beliefs, but was quickly shouted down with her own megaphone, according to sources.

    Unfortunately, we write you this morning to inform you about a similar incident that was discovered over the weekend. On Saturday evening, a student contacted the Northwestern Police Department to say he observed a second sticker that read “It’s Okay to Be White,” this time in a bathroom stall in the Main Library. The student told police he removed the sticker and threw it away, but forwarded a picture of the sticker to investigators. The restroom is located along the northwest corridor leading to the arts collection in Deering Library.

    Officers searched nearby common areas of the Main, Deering and Mudd libraries and did not find any similar stickers. However, given that we have discovered two such stickers this month, it’s possible additional stickers could be placed on our campus in the days and weeks to come, and community members could find them.

    As stated in the Friday email to campus, University leadership — and the Northwestern community — will not tolerate such acts of hate occurring at Northwestern and causing any members of our community to feel unsafe or singled out for discrimination.

    Let us be absolutely clear: Northwestern University does not discriminate or permit discrimination or harassment by any member of its community against any individual on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, pregnancy, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, parental status, marital status, age, disability, citizenship status, veteran status, genetic information or any other classification protected by law in the matters of admissions, employment, housing, services or in educational programs or activities we operate.

    You can read the University’s full Policy on Discrimination and Harassment, as well as Northwestern’s Title IX Statement.

    Any such discrimination simply will not be tolerated. Northwestern Police continue to investigate this incident, along with the previous acts reported to the community on Friday. If we find that University policies have been violated, appropriate processes and action will be taken. Northwestern University would hold an individual or individuals responsible and accountable for every policy violated, including harassment, discrimination, damage to property or any other.

    “It’s OK to be white”, is considered hate speech at Northwokestern University. They call out the cops to do a build-by-building search to look for more deplorable stickers, as if someone had called in a fucking bomb threat… W….T….F…?

    On the surface, the “Equality” Act is supposed to protect LGBT folks from discrimination by adding the categories of sexual orientation and gender identity to all federal civil rights laws, including the 1964 Civil Rights Act. It would make claims of discrimination related to these characteristics legally actionable in the way racism is, and aapplying to virtually every area of life: the workplace, education, banking, jury service, federal funding, housing, medicine and psychiatry, and all public facilities.

    It is a power grab in the guise of anti-discrimination. A bait-and-switch. It’s another attempt by a ruling micro-clique to exert mega-control over everyone else’s lives, including those it purports to protect. It allows the Mass State to maximize bureaucracy and social engineering, especially by its huge regulation of speech and expression. It erodes individual rights while claiming to uphold them.

    Court Ruling: Most Gibson’s Claims Will Go To Trial

    The lawsuit has been hard fought, at least according to the court docket which has 12 pages of entries. Much of this litigation was whether Gibson’s would survive “summary judgment” — the process by which a defendant can get a case dismissed if there are no material disputed issues of fact and the defendant is entitled to judgment as a matter of law. In defamation and other tort cases, defendants often have a good shot at dismissal because of the high legal standards to get to trial.

    But Gibson’s will get its trial on most of its claims, as the Court just ruled against Oberlin College’s motion for summary judgment as to most counts.

    Gibson’s is a modest small town bakery, multi-generational, and quasi-convenience store across the street from the College. It was messy and somewhat rundown when I was there. It still is. They were held in high regard and the older Gibson we simply referred to as Mr. Gibson.

    The incident that launched all this was three underage black kids walked in one morning and at least one walked out with a bottle of wine under his jacket. The Gibson who was at the register tried to stop him. The punk tried to take the phone from the clerk, as he was calling police. The bottle broke on the sidewalk and then the shoplifter and his girlfriend put Gibson on the ground and started beating the shit out of him, the girl kicking him in the head, saying thiings like “kill him.” This was deemed by the College to be profiling and racist by the guy being assaulted for trying to stop the shoplifting.

    Oberlin is isolated from the surrounding Lorain County because there is a massive class divide, and all the intersectional noise and drama alienates them. This was not true when the Navy sent my Dad there in WWII; it was not really true when I went there (I spent summers there, doing things like painting houses or driving a fork lift or working at the steel mill in Lorain.) By the time my daughter graduated the college and town were completely estranged, as you can imagine when a single year’s fees are now over $70,000 half the county is on welfare or scuffling by (the steel mill, Ford plant and shipyard all closed).

    For the above reason Oberlin College is worried about a jury trial in Lorain County and they should be. Well, tough titty. Gibson’s is revered by locals and Oberlin is often reviled.

    The three hoodlums who shoplifted pleaded down from felony assault.

    The professor who was defending Gibson’s and who was targeted by the Dean (“weaponize the student body”) was my theatre professor.

    I wonder why this potential hate crime isn’t getting any national media coverage?

    From CBS Denver:
    An Aurora man has been arrested in connection to a hit-and-run collision which took place on April 5. Oghaleoghene Atuno, 21, was arrested on suspicion of using his vehicle to run over two boys, ages 11 and 12.

    One boy was so badly injured, his skull was fractured.

    Law enforcement said security footage from the area showed Atuno circling the cul-de-sac several times before allegedly hitting the boys. The boys were walking on the sidewalk.

    I’m sure they do. They caught him pretty quickly.
    Folks on the jury will probably see it, doubt it will ever go public though.

  73. On the topic of sports…

    Meanwhile, what Rush calls the “chickification” of sport proceeds apace, and not just in America. If you’re a rugby fan, you’ll know that Israel Folau is a spectacular player of extraordinary gifts. I believe he’s the most capped of current Wallabies, and he holds the record for most tries in a single season, and is the fourth highest Australian scorer of all time. Unfortunately, he is also a believing Christian, so the other day he published on Instagram a graphic naming various classes of sinner – and where they’re headed:

    WARNING
    Drunks
    Homosexuals
    Adulterers
    Liars
    Fornicators
    Thieves
    Atheists
    Idolaters
    HELL AWAITS YOU

    Those are very broad categories, encompassing (from my personal observation) almost everyone in Australia. But Mr Folau advised that Jesus loves you and one can always repent, and then signed off with Galatians 5:19-21, which confirms that his Instagram post enjoys benefit of scriptural authority.

    The drunks and fornicators and so forth apparently took a relaxed view of their looming rendezvous with Satan’s roasting spit, and thus, predictably enough, it was the “homophobia” that did for Mr Folau:

    Who, what, when, where, why. All are subordinate to the Narrative — or Official Lie. All day yesterday and into today, if you had glanced at the telly, switched on the radio or surfed the big news sites of the Internet, you would have thought the Tamil Tigers were back “with a vengeance”, as The Economist put it — even though with one exception (the 1990 police massacre) the death toll was higher than any individual attack the Tigers had ever pulled off. Meanwhile, back in that fast shrinking space known as the real world, from the very first hours the headline of this story was completely straightforward:

    “Islamic Suicide Bombers Slaughter Three Hundred on Easter Morning”

    But apparently that can no longer be said.

    “Attorneys Mark Geragos and Tina Glandian, through their continued false statements and hateful rhetoric, have only deepened the damage that was cause by the very first out of 16 counts of lies that were told to the police that started this whole situation,” said Gloria Schmidt, attorney for the Osundairo brothers.

    The lawsuit alleges that, “Smollett directed every aspect of the attack, including the location and the noose” and that his attorneys defamed the brothers in statements to the media.

    By the time Task Force Ranger had been launched, Aidid’s network of drug-addled, Khat-dealing gun runners had taken over Mogadishu and were doing everything they could to oppress any and rival clans, including that of Omar, the Majeerteen. In other words, we were sent halfway across the world to help protect people just like Omar and her family. Nineteen incredible men gave their lives defending her country while serving ours. They deserve to be lauded for their service, not attacked for it.

We’re going to aim for maximum disruption,” the “Stop Trump Coalition” said in a statement to the outlet. “I’d really hope his visit will become a magnet for all those who want radical climate action to be undertaken, because Trump, after all, is a symbol of climate change denial globally—one of the reasons we see him as one of the most dangerous men in the world at this time.”
