He said what ??!!!!Â Â Â I received this e mail from a friend this morning. It looks like Senator McCain feels that women should get more education if they want equal pay. Â I know of women that have a higher education then the men they work with and still make less. If interested check out the site below and sign this petition.
Subject: Tell McCain: Stop insulting women
Recently, Senate Republicans filibustered the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, a law that would have overturned an appalling Supreme Court decision that practically abolished remedies for gender-based compensation discrimination in the workplace. In opposing this legislation, Senator John McCain said that if women want better-paying jobs, they just need more "education and training."
Let's tell Senator McCain that he should stop blocking an up or down vote on the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act. Women don't need more "education and training." They need the Senate to ensure equal rights for women under the law.
Please have a look and take action.
