Even after the most recent April 2013 denial of the Paycheck Fairness Act, following two previous rejections, Representative Rosa DeLauro (D-Conn.) is not backing down for the bill that would help ensure women are paid the same as their male counterparts.

Let’s see: Adrian Smith says, “[This] could complicate the enforcement of anti-discrimination laws, place undue burdens on employers by forcing them to prove differences in pay are not gender-related, and encourage unlimited punitive damages for factors unrelated to gender.” Why do I get the feeling that the so-called “undue burden” is what he’s most concerned with?

Mike Johanns says, “It would expand the government’s reach by establishing unprecedented annual compensation reporting requirements for businesses. It could also restrict the ability of employees to negotiate higher salaries with their employers and prevent employers from offering merit-based bonuses.” Let’s see, the last time I got a “merit-based bonus” was . . . well, never. Negotiate a higher salary? Not bloody likely, for factory workers like me. He goes on to say something about a potential “flood of costly lawsuits.” Wait—isn’t that basically the same thing as “placing undue burdens on employers”?

Deb Fischer hasn’t weighed in on this topic yet. When (and if) she does, though, I really don’t expect anything different: In an email on the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act, she says, “. . . it is important to strike a balance between guaranteeing the protection of pregnant workers under current laws while ensuring that businesses are not overburdened by unnecessary regulations." I'm sensing a theme here.
