Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) quietly repealed his state’s equal pay law last week, a decision that will make it harder for victims of wage discrimination to sue for lost earnings and back wages. The law was enacted primarily to address the massive pay gap that exists between male and female workers, which is even bigger in Wisconsin than in other states.
Repealing the law was a no-brainer for state Sen. Glenn Grothman (R), who led the effort because of his belief that pay discrimination is a myth driven by liberal women’s groups. Ignoring multiple studies showing that the pay gap exists, Grothman blamed females for prioritizing childrearing and homemaking instead of money, saying, “Money is more important for men,” The Daily Beast reports:

It is a mystery to me how we could have struggled by ourselves, given up so much, worked so hard, endured the insults and innuendos, made great get kicked in the teeth by these hateful, chauvinistic, backward-thinking Right Wing assholes. (Yes, I said that.) I worked my butt off for MANY years as a college-educated mother of four, sometimes working two office jobs at a time to give my family a nice home, food, clothes and NEVER ON WELFARE. You do what you've got to do.....

And these fools...Mitch McConnell, Scott Walker, and all the other Republican governors, congressman and mayors have the audacity to condemn, ridicule, demean, mock, attack, and LIE about what their agenda is.

Wait till November, BOZOS.
