Comparable Worth is Not Equal Pay for Equal Work

Everyone who thinks John Roberts was inveighing against Equal Pay for Equal Work in those Reagan memos needs to read Sebastian Holsclaw's post on the subject. I very much hope that some Democratic senators ask him about Equal Pay because, as of now, we have no idea how he feels about it. All we know from the memos is that he, like most of us, thinks comparable worth theory is a bad idea.

Oh, please, Ezra.

The "Comparable Worth" concept is, and always has been bullshit. Reason is someone has to make a human judgement. Of course, I am speaking of comparing different jobs and not two people doing the same job.

Jesus Christ, Fred, I know reading comprehension isn't your strong suit, but you just flamed Ezra for agreeing with you.
