Mikulski’s ‘Paycheck Fairness Act’ Would Allow Employees to Discuss Salaries

 

 

 

  Beware of anything coming out of Washington that contains the word ” Fairness ” … It will surely be anything but .

 

 

” A ‘Paycheck Fairness Act’ introduced in Congress last week would require employers to show pay disparity is related to job-performance and prohibit employer retaliation for sharing salary information with coworkers.

Senator Barbara A. Mikulski and Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro, both Democrats, said their legislation is aimed at closing the pay gap between men and women and would also address loopholes in the 1963 Equal Pay Act.”

 

   Since when does the government have the right to entwine themselves into the compensation negotiations between employers and their employees ? Sounds like something cooked up by Oren Boyle and Wesley Mouch .

 

  It’s just another way for unions to get their foot in the door and for trial lawyers to fill their coffers.
