Kansas City Fights 'Pay Gap' Myth

Time and time again Conservative women have noted that "the "pay gap" statistic doesn’t take into account a lot of choices that women and men make — education, years of experience and hours worked—that influence earnings. If we want to have a fruitful discussion about a gender wage gap, we should have it after the comparison is adjusted for those factors."

Nevertheless, check City Council legislating social justice and cracking down on employers in a move that corresponds with with big cities across the nation:

Kansas City Council takes on gender pay gap, bars employers from asking wage history

Which D- Brain introduced this ordinance?

This is bullshit and the city has no business getting involved with it.

It's not a myth, & everyone who doesn't hate women knows it.

If a chick is hot and puts out, she should make more than other chicks. It’s time they were paid fairly.

Hello? Uh why is the transportation & Infrastructure Committee voting on things such as this ridiculous ordinance?

OMG asking a prospective employee about salary history when most people lie about it anyway.

Horrible!

An employer would be crazy to locate or relocate in Kansas City. Not only is the city telling him what he may ask prospective employees, it will take away a percent of his and his employees' earned income for the privilege of being here. But on the positive side, the employer wouldn't have to worry about crime - not because there isn't any, but because it's inevitable, so why worry.

The city should be doing whatever it can to attract employers and residents. It is doing the exact opposite.

No, they move to the suburbs all the time. They move to Johnson County where they don't have to deal with crap like this. Weird.

^^^If it's easily debunked, let's see you debunk it. You can't. Not weird. Normal.
