Mika: Gender Pay Gap 'Far Worse' Than 77%
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 04/10/2014 5:51:15 AM PDT by governsleastgovernsbest

Democrats have clung to the claim that women earn 77% of what men do with religious fervor, as evidenced by the "religious revival, Praise Jesus" atmosphere at President Obama's equal pay event at the White House earlier this week.

But although the 77% figure has been thoroughly debunked, on today's Morning Joe Mika Brzezinski alleged that the real gap is actually "far worse." Mika made her claim without benefit of any actual statistics.

Arizona: We Don't Need No Stinkin' Badges!
Alfredo Bedoya, famous Mexican actor said it best when he confronts Humphrey Bogart, gringo fortune hunter in the classic film, "Treasure of the Sierra Madre" who asks the quintessential (and stereotypical) Mexican Bandido, swarthy, greasy, sweaty in a dirty sombrero with a knick in it: "Who are you?"
"We are the Federales."
"Well, if you're the Federales where's your badges?"
"Badges? Badges? We ain't got no badges! We don't need no stinkin' badges!!"

Anyone who believes this pay gap nonsense will believe anything as long as it is NOT true.

The truth is that when comparing for men and women doing the same ACTUAL work, with the same experience, education and training and the same seniority on the job women average slightly higher pay than men.

Women are the majority of registered voters so they control the government but they want to call themselves a minority, the only real MAJORITY that exists is the female majority but they want to call themselves a minority. The REAL reason that we have not had a woman president YET is that women in general have not wanted one. They rejected Hillary Clinton in the 2008 primaries and now we are being told that Hillary is the frontrunner for 2016. What, they didn’t want her then but eight years later as an old and worn out cackling clown they are going to elect her?

And truly they don't. Our screwed-up culture appears to have convinced 2/3 of women that they are eternal victims of EVERYTHING...whether there is any basis in fact for that or not.

Mika: Gender Pay Gap 'Far Worse' Than 77%

That's because you babes ain't givin' it up like you used to in the 1950's and 1960's. Show a little leg and we might could talk.

If most women were not so emotional and could think with logic vs emotion they would see that there are a lot of reasons for the perceived pay gap; pregnancy, family life, lack of interest in high paying math and hard science fields being some of the major leaders.

a lot of women are very well paid, and many are paid better than their male counter parts. Whole fields have women in higher paying roles; modeling, tennis, fashion design (especially if you count the female acting males).

That's true, Mika! I mean if you take all the money women earn and divide it by the total number of women (including stay-at-home moms), and do the same ridiculous computation for men, I'm sure the women are earning 30-40% of what men do.

Funny how the liberals look at facts and don't believe them, outright lying about them, but then look at fantasies (like global warming) and see nothing but fact.

Hey, Laz, to each his own, but I'd rather you not encourage THIS one.

If they’re paying on brains and talent, Mika is getting far more than he’s worth.

What happens when average pay includes all unemployed/jailed men ($0/hour) and the money unemployed women receive from their husbands or government?

Just another “genderhawk” -

“Equal effort” is a red herring, drawn across the path of anybody trying to get to the bottom of the mystery of how it is that men seem to wind up with larger paychecks than women.

The fact is, anybody gets just about as much money in exchange for the time and effort put in on the job as the rest of society is willing to give that person. Rock stars and sports figures get lots of money because, well, poor people give rich people money. In some dimly perceived way, the very act of elevating another to an exalted status somehow elevates even the lowest to think, “Hey, maybe I has a little something to do with that.”

Applauding with cash is a time-honored method of showing that approval and personal affection for another, and defining that trigger by which a greater or lesser amount of reward is showered upon an individual is as elusive as trying to prove any article of faith or personal belief. The impulse would seem incoherent or totally irrational to anyone else.

In many instances, the female employee is paid for being what she is, just for being pretty. Ugly or uninteresting women get paid less than smart, stylish women.

Look it up.

She knows how to read what she’s told to read. She needs no other level of intellect than that of a robotic media whore.

When Mika and all the Democrat women start being honest about the treatment of women by Muslims all over the world they might get a little credibilty. For now, just hypocrites.

OK, get out your duct tape and paper bag, and have at it.

“A lie stuck to is as good as the truth. It’s the left’s stock in trade.”

That’s right, and it works well for them.

These people are ridiculous (and dangerous); we should simply start referring to Obama as Barack Hitler until they knock off the baseless nonsense. In fact, I intend to do just that - and I’ll be dismissive of anyone who sees it as the absurdity it is. Just keep plugging along, and I might convinve one out of every ten people that Obama IS just like Hitler...

Who would pay 23% more for an equivalent product?

Now... since it would be exceedingly rare for this to happen...

stop claiming it is, lefties.
