This is the third time the bill has failed, following defeats in 2010 and 2012.
The Paycheck Fairness Act would require employers to disclose payment and demographic information and prevent them from punishing workers who discuss their salaries. It would also allow civil pay discrimination lawsuits to be filed against employers.
Republicans opposed the bill, arguing it would encourage “frivolous” lawsuits and deprive women of workplace flexibility. - MSNBC
….Huh, so the article says “this legislation would double down on job loss” and “in other words … threatens to hurt the very people it claims to help” which seemingly translates to: “if everyone gets equal pay, we’re canning the female employees first cause now the company they work for can’t afford them.” Wow yeah thank you so much, Republicans, for opening up my eyes and protecting me from this terrible ploy that the Democrats are trying to succeed at. No, you fucking idiots…are you seriously that fucking stubborn.
IF THERE WAS EQUAL PAY FOR EQUAL WORK THERE WOULDN’T BE LAWSUITS JFC
