Employers should be able to pay women less?

01 Oct

Republican Tea Party (GOTP) senate hopeful Todd Akin’s reportedly saying it’s fair for employers to pay women less than men.

“I believe in free enterprise. I don’t think the government should be telling people what you pay and what you don’t pay,” Akin said at a recent town hall meeting answering a question concerning his decision to vote against the Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of 2009.

“I think it’s about freedom,” Akin added. “If somebody wants to hire somebody and they agree on a salary, that’s fine, however it wants to work. So, the government sticking its nose into all kinds of things has gotten us into huge trouble.”

With all due respect Mr. Akin, not only are you an ignoramus when it comes to “legitimate rape” but you’re just a plain old fashioned ignoramus when it comes to women’s issues period. Go back to your village, find your rock, and climb back under it.
