phalamir: DrPainMD: Serious Black: Secrecy of income is how a lot of businesses get away with pay discrimination. After all, if you're a woman and you have no access to any info that would show you how you make 10% less than the men with the same job description and experience in your company, how can you possibly know you should sue?

If the woman is offered a certain pay/benefits package for a certain job, and she accepts the employment offer, she has no grounds for a law suit.

"This salary is what we offer all our new hires; we don't negotiate".  Is really" This si the salary we offer all out new women hires; we offer more and allow negoiation for men."  No company actually says "fark you, biatch, we pay you less"

Now... I don't got no fancy economical degree or nuthin', but... *spit*

If the little lady done took a job, and agreed to do it fer pay, why should she care what the menfolk are gettin' paid, if'n she agreed to do that job for what she's gits paid?

Plus... and I heard this on Hannity... if'n she births a baby, 0bama lets her take six weeks off for, uh... mothering leave.  I think it's "mothering".  Anyway...

Six weeks is almost two months.  And there's twelve months inna year.  So payin' women ten percent less is only fair, 'cause she ain't gonna be there but ten percent less.

So really, if you pay women the same, they're getting special treatment.  Just like gay marriage.  That's what Hannity said.

"What was your income this year?"

"That's a secret."

"Then how are we supposed to assess how much tax you owe?"

"Just trust me when I assure you I have been taxed enough already."

"And I went back out and climbed back into the seat of my old bulldozer and the smoke went out the exhaust stack and my ears. And I thought, 'I'd like to get rid of the IRS.'"

Seriously? Is this some kind of inbred folksy meditation?

Diogenes: "I don't need them poking through my books, I don't need them telling my pastor or my priest what he's going to be able to preach from the pulpit," he continued. "In fact, it's not even the government's business how much money you make. That's a part of freedom."

Our freedoms are defined and delineated in our Constitution.  Good to know you advocate violating our Constitution, 'Representative.'

I never considered money laundering as a facet of freedom, but I'll take it.

Unless of course you're in his district and not reporting your full income and paying your taxes I'm sure.
