It’s Equal Pay Day – a day that shows how far into 2013 women must work to earn what men earned in 2012. After all, women still make just 77 cents to a man’s dollar. This gender gap affects women (and their families) from all backgrounds, ages, and at all levels of education – and it’s unacceptable. 

Re-blogging because (unfortunately) this is still a thing.

Buckle up followers, we’re going on a wild ride that will likely get you hate mail, get me hate mail and piss off people across tumblr. Here we go!
 
So let’s make sure we’re all on the same page. We’re talking about equal pay for men and women mandated by law. I do not support this laws because they are based of a “gender wage gap” that is misleading and they make it tougher for women to actually get a job.
Consider the following:

While I don’t doubt that the intentions of those that support equal pay, they may have been either mislead by statistics presented to them to support this law and they may also be unaware of the unintended side effects that are associated with it. 
“One of the great mistakes is to judge policies and programs by their intentions rather than their results.” ― Milton Friedman
First let me approach the gender wage gap. There is a nugget of truth to this. Women do make 75% of what Men do, however this is not due to a sexist society but rather individual choices that men and women make. Men tend to major in high paying fields such as business, computer science and engineering. Women tend to major in Education, health care and social sciences; all of which tend to lead to lower paying jobs. This is also due to the fact that women tend to make career choices which would allow them to work part time if they choose to have children later in their careers. So we can see that the wage gap is not a result of discrimination but many factors such as human capital investment, career choices and education.
If you compare men and women with the same experience, education and productivity, some studies show women earn 98% of what men do and in some positions, women out earn men.
Women without children earn even more.
More evidence

Hold that thought! There’s more! I’m about to make the point that even if there was a gender wage gap, it would be detrimental to women, or any minority, to put equal pay laws in place.

Let me give you the following scenario assuming that the wage gap is due to sexism. 
 Two people are applying for a job, one is a man and one is a woman. The male and female are of equal productivity, skill, and education; practically identical in ability. The employer is sexist against women. If there is no equal pay law in effect, the employer has two options, hire the woman an attempt to pay her less than what he would pay the man for equal productivity, and risk losing her to another employer who is not sexist or hire the man at market value for his labor and forgo the opportunity to try to hire the woman at below market value. In either scenario, the employer is harmed by his sexism and attempt to pay her below market value. 
This means that without the these laws, if a woman is at equal productivity to a man, it will cost an employer more money to hire the man. This is something we should all be in favor of; making sexists pay extra for their sexism.
If the equal pay law is in place, the employer may hold sexist views still and find another way to not hire the woman however the real cost is for employers that do not want to risk hiring a woman at all. Equal pay laws make it extremely easy for women to sue if they believe their male counterparts are being paid more. Because of this risk, employers may not want to hire women at all or potentially separate their positions into male and female roles to circumvent the law. The law eliminates the extra cost that an employer would have to pay for his discrimination
TL;DR
Equal pay attempts to fix a problem that doesn’t exist and ends up making it less likely that they will be hired.

Really?

This is because TV, Internet access, a smartphone (hell, why not one for every family member?), a $30,000+ car (or two), a $250,000 house, and designer clothes are apparently necessary. I know parents that are supporting three children on minimum wage. The people that complain just want everybody to have the same “status” so they don’t feel bad about themselves, and they often refuse to work more than one job. I don’t know where you stand on it all, but I’m sick of people seeing wants as necessities and demanding the minimum wage be raised.

That’s actually not true at all. I like how you listed all the frivolous wants that people have and not actual things people have to pay for that actually cost a a lot.  I don’t want to be a dick but there are so many problems with your paragraph. You make it seem like you look down on people working on minimum wage like you’re somehow better which is a common problem. You degrade us down to seem like all we care about is social status and how other people see us.  Everyone is so quick to condemn people for having wants and dreams like it’s a bad thing. Like for some reason not liking where you’re at and dreaming for something better is such a horrid idea. You generalize everyone working minimum wage to that one scumbag that’s just looking for a quick buck and doesn’t want to work hard and is just looking for a handout and thinks the world owes him something. Here’s a newsflash tho, not all of us are like that, surprisingly enough MOST of us are not like that at all.
The minimum wage in my state is around 7.93 I believe, so I actually make a bit above that because I worked hard and got opportunities to move up. And I can tell you first hand even making more than that it’s hard to live off of for a  lot of reasons. First off you list tv and internet access as one of the crazy things people on minimum wage have that they don’t need. I can tell you right now I don’t have cable access because I don’t see the point when I can just watch everything online, and tbh I’m not the only one. I’ll let you in on a little secret, when you are trying to save money and are looking for things to cut, cable is actually one of the first things to go. I do however have internet access, but that is a bit of a necessity for me. I currently have a job in which we get emailed our schedules ever week so I need it for that, not only that but I’m going to school , which a lot of people on minimum wage are actually doing too, so I have to occasionally do research which is a tad bit easier to do when I have internet access.
Next you list having a phone, heaven forbid people want to keep in touch with each other. I myself have a smartphone so I guess I’m one of those crazy poor people trying to live above their means eh? But no it was actually a gift from my grandparents I got a year or so ago. As far as my plan goes it’s actually not that expensive either, I actually did my research like a lot of people do and was able to find a good deal to maximize what I can get while still paying a decent reasonable amount.
And hey lets throw out a crazy big number for a car without looking at actual prices, hell lets throw in “or two” to make it seem even worse. Okay so here’s the thing, not everyone goes out and buys new cars, a lot of people don’t especially people living off minimum wage. Surprisingly enough we actually know when we can’t afford something, and even if we don’t most people can’t just go and go and buy a brand new nice car outright so they’d have to finance it, which you have to get approved for. To get approved they take a lot of things into account like how much you make and your credit score and blah blah blah. It’s actually not that easy to go get a $30,000 car, let alone two. So if you get approved for it it’s probably because you can somehow afford it. But most people are like me and probably wont get approved for that so we go and buy used cars, much cheaper, much more affordable. I know it’s not crazy, frivolous, and stupid but hey we can’t all fit into the narrow minded generalizations that society likes to throw at us.
Don’t even get me started on houses. There are a lot of factors that go into pricing of a house, number of bedrooms, bathrooms, location of the house, how much land its on, how big the house is, what the neighborhood is like, if it’s close to a fire hydrant, but you usually don’t take things like that into account when you’re spouting off random numbers without facts or research to make a group of people look bad.
And I can’t even tell you the last time I had designer anything.
You see people like you are actually one of the big problems with society today. You like to speculate and make assumptions about people or situations without knowing what it’s like. You like to demean stereotype and generalize us all into the same category because it makes it easier for you to keep track of. You like to throw out huge crazy numbers to make the problem seem stupid and small. You try and make it seem crazy to want to get paid $10 an hour (which was what most people were asking for, not 24) when there are actually people out there getting paid that and then some. Oh but because I work at a run of the mill job I don’t deserve that, because I’ve kept the same steady job for 2 years I’m not entitled to make a bit of extra money, because I have to deal with people like you that demean me, look down, and scoff at me on a daily basis for working where I do even tho they’re the ones coming to my store and eating the food that I make day in and day out, that maybe I don’t deserve a little bit of money so I can pay bills and maybe do something fun every now and then. Your’e so quick to judge without knowing a damn thing about what it’s like.
I don’t know what you think makes you better than people working minimum wage or qualifies you to make back handed comments, generalizations, and assumptions about them, but maybe next time you should do some research before you spout off some random rant about us only caring about status and only wanting minimum wage so we don’t feel bad about ourselves. Because I can assure you I don’t give a damn about status or how you or people like you perceive me to be. Nor do I feel bad about the job I have or the money I make. The reason I want a higher minimum wage is so that I can have a decent life without having to work my ass off constantly while trying live on my own and go to school so that I have a chance to actually make more and do better for myself one day.

TL:DR 
you missed the point, my school sent this to everyone without showing the opposing viewpoint.
Also minimum wage was never intended to be lived off of, it only exists so your employer is required to give you legal tender instead of on-site coupons or some shit like George Pullman.

All of this negates the real issue: If you raise the minimum wage employers will cut employees hours, lay off some employees, and pass the added cost on to the consumers. You end up with more expensive goods and a higher cost of living. What good is $25/hour when everything triples in price? Your purchasing power stays the same, only the numbers got higher.

rtamerica:

Fast-food workers expected to walk off the job in 100 US cities
Organizers expect fast-food workers throughout the US to walk off the job on Thursday in a show of solidarity against what they allege are immoral industry practices, and as part of the movement lobbying for a $15 federal minimum wage.
At least 100 cities are scheduled to participate in the demonstration, but one of the central locations will almost certainly be New York City. An estimated 57,000 fast food employees work in the Big Apple, where the median industry wage amounts to $8.89 an hour, a number Allison Kilkenny of The Nation writes is the lowest of any job in the city.
Such demonstrations began occurring at a steady pace in New York last year and the movement has since spread through the country. At strikes this past August in 60 cities, including Washington DC, workers have called for the minimum wage to be raised, as well as the right to unionize and for the ability to work without fear of retaliation. 


Get ready for higher prices, less hours AND more machines doing work normally done by people. If they get their way, this will be disastrous.

In fact, if we look at the numbers, we find that Catz makes roughly 0.032% of her company’s total worth, while Cook makes roughly 0.086% of his company’s total worth. Now, Oracle is only worth 35.28% of what Apple is, but Catz makes 37.21% of what Cook makes, so if we’re going to take this comparison seriously, and this take into account the total worth of the two company’s into account, we find that Catz actually has a salary that is 1.93% higher than Cook, even though they have roughly the same job.
