house Bill H.R. 7

Should the Equal Pay Act Be Strengthened to Reduce the Wage Gap?

Argument in favor

Women should receive equal pay for equal work, but in too many cases they get paid significantly less than their male peers do in the same role. The federal government needs to crack down on employers who pay women less.

And while you’re at it, pass the ERA. Why are you guys so afraid of women? We’ve only been at this since the 60’s.

Argument opposed

There are plenty of reasons that one employee might make more money than another — including education, experience, and training. Wage disparities are often the result of differences in people’s abilities, not gender discrimination.

👎🏻 HOUSE Bill H.R. 7 AKA the “Paycheck Fairness Act” 👎🏻 “EQUAL PAY FOR EQUAL WORK PERFORMED” House Bill H.R. 7 AKA the “Paycheck Fairness Act” which would revise existing enforcement mechanisms to prevent wage discrimination based on gender. Exceptions in laws that prohibit wage differences between men and women would be limited to bona fide factors — like education, training, or experience. PAY should based on performance and qualifications of the employee and Not based on gender. If a female employee out-performs that of fellow ale employees, then of course, she should be compensated accordingly. If both a female and male employee perform at the same level of competence, they should both be paid accordingly equal. There are plenty of reasons that one employee might make more money than another — including education, experience, and training. Wage disparities are often the result of differences in people’s abilities, not gender discrimination. SneakyPete......... 👎🏻HR-7👎🏻. 3*24*19..........

It has been proven time and again that there is no substantial evidence supporting the gender wage gap. If you have any doubt, watch the video about the Wage Gap by PrageU on YouTube.

Taking into account hours worked/time off, years of work & experience, I’ve seen that the “wage gap” is like 3 or 4 cents. You can’t just say “this is what men make & this is what women make”-that is dumb “research” & don’t you think if women could be hired for less that people would only hire women so they could pay them less? Use your brain cell.

    No shit Sherlock! I'm praying to be able to retire in 6 years, that means I will have been working for over 51 years. The past two years I have worked 7 days a week and been on call 24 hours a day. I havent come close to earning the $241,000 Congress gets in one year with God Only Knows How Many Vacations! I have had NONE. WE DAMN WELL DESERVE MORE THAN EQUAL PAY AFTER ALL THIS TIME WAITING! WE THE WOMEN OF THESE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA ARE NOT NOW, NOR HAVE WE EVER BEEN SECOND CLASS CITIZENS

    It’s amazing that we still have to debate something like this in 2019. If there is a difference in pay between two people of different genders and there’s no difference in education, training, or experience then it is gender discrimination, plain and simple!

    Absolutely. Mounting Evidence from numerous studies shows that even JUST OUT OF COLLEGE, men are offered 20-25% more than a woman for the same job with same degree. Other more advanced countries have tackled this issue successfully - Iceland, for example. Let’s stop enforcing the misconception that men are better than women and take a page from Iceland’s playbook. It’s called doing the right thing which, for some reason, seems to be ignored by male politicians.

    Studies show that there is no actual wage difference. Women who stop to raise families, then go back to school and get and/or get a job later in life start later and are not paid as much because of lack of experience as and/or training on the job market. Those women who stayed in the job market are equal to or more than men are paid.

    Yes. Remove the wage gap. Do something the Founding Father’s would be proud of when they said “All men are created equal”.

    That sounds good but Trump won’t sign it and the Republican senate won’t go for it. What are the republicans actually good for other than nothing? I suppose Trump and his comrads are calling equal rights socialism.

    This is already in place- in 2019 the wage gap is becoming non existent. This is more DNC socialism.

    The bill closes loopholes in the Equal Pay act from 1963, such as prohibiting employers from using salary history in setting new hire pay and banning retaliation from employers for discussing salary with fellow employees. We need to have this bill passed!!

    The current laws are sufficient. Equal pay for equal work and abilities. Each company determines what will be the wages offered. That is the way our Capitalist system works.

    If you work hard your pay should reflect that. No one with a college education should be living below the poverty line. Equal pay for equal work. Race, gender, sexual orientations,Shouldn’t matter .
