Kamala Harris proposes equal pay measure to close gender gap

Sen. Kamala Harris, on Monday, proposed closing the gender pay gap by requiring companies to disclose pay data and secure an ’equal pay certification’. Harris’ proposal aims to shift the burden from workers to corporations, which would have to show they eliminated pay disparities. Under Harris’ proposal, companies would give their pay data to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

Amazing that there are some out there who believe this gap exists, that there are politicians who pander to them, and media that are too lazy to fact check. I almost feel bad for those losers.

Equal pay has long been a law in this country. Any more proposals that raise women's pay is only to unbalance the pay in their favor. Do you want to start a witch hunt, Harris?

So will this reduce the “earnings gap”? When that happens, will anyone take the harder jobs when they can earn the same doing an easier job?

Is she still pushing this debunked narrative. She is so far behind the curve it's truly staggering.

Men, who work more hours in aggregate, more dangerous and technical jobs, should get paid the same as women anyway, because somehow that's fairness.

I haven't read any of the comments here, I wanted to provide my two cents first. I am a recruiter, have been for a decade. I've recruited for staffing firms, as well as in-house. I am typically the one to make the official offer to a candidate, and I have not seen any evidence of differentiating pay based on gender. I've supported well over 100 companies in their recruitment efforts ranging from startups to Fortune 100s. Does pay inequality exist? Maybe. Is it a problem if it does exist? Yes. Do I think it exists? No. I can't say that I have ever seen a case of this happening. I thought I saw one in 2010 from Dish Network, when they lowballed by $5K, then I learned that was their general practice when extending an offer. I have 5 years of data on this subject because that is how long I've been watching. My data is conclusive; there is not gender pay inequality in any of the companies I've supported, or worked for. I welcome any claims there are so long as they are backed by data because I am fascinated by this issue. The articles I have read on this subject do not show me, an HR professional, any evidence of pay inequality.

not all employees have the same work ethic.... so a lazy person should get paid the same as a hard worker just because... from a woman who slept her way to the top(verified)... equality at its finest

...How many times does it have to be mentioned that there's no such thing as a gender wage gap!

So more federal bureaucracy to "solve" a problem that doesn't exist. No.

Forcing companies to disclose pay data could very well backfire on the Democrats, if it turns out women actually get paid more (all things else equal)

totally makes sense. trusting corporations to self police is as bad of an idea as letting termites live in your house.

When jobs are compared one to one, instead of the sum of all men to all women, the difference is normally around 2% with the highest ever recorded a difference of 7%, and that one was an outlier.

Women have babies. That’s why they make less.
