(You get the point!)
I just wanted to make sure. Besides, I don’t need a bunch of left-wingers reading your post and taking off on some pointless tangent (as if this won’t get bulldogged into something about Iraq anyway).
In all honesty, there should not be a logical person on earth against equal pay for equal work. There had to be something in the wording, or in the details that gave McCain pause.
I don’t think women should be paid the same as men in jobs where they are nothing but EEOC babies such as firefighters.
I know I’m going to piss off a lot of bleeding hearts out there, but women are not as strong as men, and in jobs where strength is sometimes the difference between the life and death of an innocent person - I want the best qualified person on the job - regardless of which bathroom they frequent.
I know there are some strong women on this sight, and I am not talking about them. I think that if a woman wants equal pay - she should perform at the minimum standard that the men are required to.
No discounts for push ups, pull ups, and running unless the pay is downwardly adjusted right along with the standards.
But in the business world, there is no difference between males and females, so there need not be any difference in compensation.
Now let the gnashing and waling begin. [/quote]
I agree 100% with one caveat:
Men ask for raises more often, and are more aggressive about pursuing pay raises. If you don’t have the balls to ask for a raise, you don’t get one, that’s just that. Nothing to do with your gender, just your resolve.
So if you’re doing the same work for less pay, why exactly aren’t you asking for more money then?
Otherwise: Good post.
