Obama offers bribes for feminist votes

October 26, 2010 06:20

Obama’s principal plan to nail down the loyalty of the feminists is to pass the Paycheck Fairness Act (PFA). It has already passed the House, and Majority Leader Harry Reid plans a Senate vote in a mischievous lame duck session.

This bill would amend the Equal Pay Act (EPA) to shift decision-making about wages and salaries from employers to judges and juries, a longtime goal of the feminists who want wages to be based on subjective motions of “worth” rather than on market rates. The Paycheck Fairness Act (PFA) would also reward another Obama constituency by opening a lucrative channel for trial lawyers to file class-action lawsuits against employers and collect punitive damages in unlimited amounts.

The PFA would give the courts the power to micromanage all personnel decisions. That’s a goal the feminists have sought for nearly 30 years under the slogans “pay equity” and “comparable worth.”

The PFA would reinstate the Equal Opportunity Survey to identify employers for further investigation. The Department of Labor had discontinued use of this survey because of its gross inaccuracies.

The U.S. Commission on Civil Rights sent a letter to senators voicing clear-cut opposition to the Paycheck Fairness Act.

No feminist-supported legislation would be complete without including grants of taxpayers’ money to feminist organizations. The PFA authorizes grants to “eligible entities” (aka feminist groups) to teach feminists “negotiation skills” to demand higher salaries.
