Marsha Blackburn: Women 'Don't Want' Equal Pay Laws


Marsha Blackburn
Representative, Tennessee, District 7

Republican congresswoman Marsha Blackburn said on Sunday that women "don't want" equal pay laws.

During a roundtable discussion on NBC's Meet The Press, former White House advisor David Axelrod asked if she would support a law promoting workplace gender equality. Blackburn responded:

"I think that more important than that is making certain that women are recognized by those companies. You know, I’ve always said that I didn’t want to be given a job because I was a female, I wanted it because I was the most well-qualified person for the job. And making certain that companies are going to move forward in that vein, that is what women want. They don’t want the decisions made in Washington. They want to be able to have the power and the control and the ability to make those decisions for themselves."

Blackburn voted against the 2009 Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, a landmark bill for women's rights in the workplace. The law makes it easier for women to file wage discrimination suits against employers. She also voted against the Paycheck Fairness Act of 2009.

Blackburn is hardly the only female politician to oppose laws aimed at discouraging the gender wage gap. In 2012, a new Paycheck Fairness Act failed in the Senate after receiving nay votes from Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-Texas), Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), Olympia Snowe (R-Maine) and Susan Collins (R-Maine).

The gender pay gap has expanded in recent years. In 2012, women earned approximately 80.9% of what men earned. According to a recent analysis, the average U.S. woman now stands to lose out on $443,000 over 40 years.

She needs to return $348,000. That's 20% of her pay for the 10 years she's served in congress.

Awesome that this is RIGHT on the heels of the (pew?) research revealing that the number of households with women as main breadwinners in 40% of homes with children.

SMH. This is why minority groups can't have things. There will always be that one.

And cute that she doesn't want special treatment as a woman, although I'm sure she's benefitted from white privilege plenty of times in her life.

Neka, nuh uh. She made it with hard work. Nothing to do with her gender or race. Or affirmative action.Stern Smile
