I believe that people are already paid the same. People don't account for the danger of jobs and the kinds of jobs that women and men have.

It depends on how well they do their job and how long they have been doing their job, jobs can't be used as labels for income. Some jobs where 2 men have the same job one of them still receives better pay because they have done a better job. Feminists need to quit being so vague with their protests and worry about getting better at their job to increase their income instead of acting entitled.

Yes, and businesses should be required to publish their salary ranges for each position. Although, many statistics are based off of the 1970s-80s

I think there should be tax incentives for single income married couples w children. Women should be paid equally

 @4NYJQPPfrom Washington answered…4yrs4Y

I have yet to hear anyone explain the wage gap in a way that makes economic sense.
That it exists is unquestioned but until you know why it exist you legislating a result is counter productive: equal pay legislation is flat stupid. As an employer I will tell you that equal pay will result in fewer women being hired and separation of male and female carrier paths. I would support an 'affirmative action like' program for women
