GOP: equal pay for women could cause job losses

Republican women senators offer toothless legislation aimed at improving the gender wage gap.  Many of the features of the Paycheck Fairness Act- which was voted down by the GOP 3 times- have been removed, including the mandate for businesses to report gender and wage information back the federal government for monitoring.  The new act, called the Workplace Advancement Act, confuses the economic issue of equal pay for equal work with the patronizing notion of advancement, but according to Senator Deb. Fischer (R-Neb) “provides needed changes and can realistically pass.”
