Yes it may be true that every woman in the white house does not get paid the same rate. It is also true that all people in the white house do not have the same responsibility.

 

Where do you folks find these ludicrous rebuttal statements?  


You mean just like in every private business.

"Whatever happens, the flap is unlikely to die out soon — even if the legislation is unlikely to get through Congress. This weekend, the Wall Street Journal reported that Land said she would have opposed the bill because it made salary information public, but there is no such provision in the measure."

 

"It does, however, call for provisions that would allow people to ask about pay information for other workers in their companies."

 

Can someone explain how it is different? Unless there is a penalty for disclosing that information, how can the information be kept private?

 

And don't I have the right to keep "my" contract for employment with a company private?

Yes, that is correct.  The problem is that in companies without union protection the pay rate is NOT laways the same for equal work, education and experience.
