In the mythical land of liberal, there is a thing called a gender wage gap. The left believes that there is some sort of magical gap between wages paid to men and wages paid to women for the exact same job. However, it does not actually exist out here in the real world.
Elizabeth Warren, also known as Pocahontas or Fauxcahontas, is playing into that mindset in order to pander support from Democrats and women without a brain.
The Senator claims that if she were elected president in 2020, then she will use executive orders in order to close the nonexistent gap.
Warren said she will impose “new rules on companies that hope to receive federal contracts,” and weed out companies “with poor track records on diversity and equal pay.” In other words, if the company doesn't meet a certain quota of hiring minorities, then they are less likely to recieve contracts.
She also wanted to “ban companies that want federal contracts from using forced arbitration and non-compete clauses that restrict workers’ rights."
Despite the fact the country has focused relentlessly on diversity for the past few decades, non-white’s still aren’t adequately represented in many industries and in leadership positions. People like Warren see systemic racism as the reason. Others may think there are not enough qualified applicants to fill those positions, possibly due to socioeconomic issues, rather than overt or covert racism.
Nevertheless, Warren is going to tackle this issue and the gender wage gap, which doesn’t actually exist. There is no “wage” gap. It’s an earnings gap between men and women and due to a variety of factors relating to different career choices between the sexes. When those factors are taken into account, the gap nearly vanishes and there is no evidence what remains is due to discrimination.
That is not to say that discrimination never happens. It surely does, yet the solutions proposed would due more to hurt women and businesses than help.
“Direct real resources towards attracting entry-level applicants from HBCUs, Tribal Colleges and Universities, and other minority-serving institutions,” Warren said, “Black women are disproportionately represented in the federal workforce.”
“It will also issue first-of-its-kind guidance on enforcing claims involving the intersectional discrimination that women of color face from the interlocking biases of racism and sexism,” she added.
I wonder how she will take people with made up genders into consideration, LOL.
