Walking Away from Transparency, Step Two

Filed under: Uncategorized — ioconnor @ 5:54 pm


I would think a law like this would be a no-brainer. Nobody wants discrimination. Maybe that is what Obama thought and because of this he didn’t remember his promises. Not that I expect a politician to remember any of his promises.

Going back to the “Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of 2009”. What’s fair about it. Seems like it opens up a whole Pandora’s box of worms.

Now instead of the unfairly treated employee finding work somewhere else we’ll start seeing lawsuits. I can’t count the number of perceived injustices every employee feels. Every employee seems to have many different scales in which they judge themselves highly. One guy will say the blond bimbo gossips all day while he does the work yet doesn’t receive the appropriate pay. The classy blond always looking out for others feels she should be getting more because she makes the environment workable. The do nothing manager everybody hates may not know how to do their jobs. Perhaps so and perhaps they would not have jobs except for the fact he can pull in work for them better than anybody else can imagine. Now we have a law that says we have to look at the sex and skin color to determine an employees worth? Perhaps this Lilly Ledbetter bill should not have been passed. And certainly not without following the promised procedural guidelines.
