Kamala Harris Wants to Slap Fines on Companies That Pay Women Less Than Men

Published

on

2020 presidential candidate Kamala Harris is unveiling a plan that aims to close the alleged gender pay gap.

She will do so by fining corporations who pay men more than women.

Under Harris’ plan, companies must reveal their pay policies while submitting an application for a mandatory “Equal Pay Certification” from the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. According to the AP, companies that fail to meet these standards “would be fined 1% of their profits for every 1% wage gap they allow to persist for work of equal value.”

The California Senator claims $180 billion would be collected over 10 years. Fines will then decrease during this timeframe as companies bolster their equal pay policies.

Harris’s campaign said on Monday:

“Kamala Harris has a simple message for corporations: Pay women fairly or pay the price.”

The campaign statement added:

“We’ve let corporations hide their wage gaps, but forced women to stand up in court just to get the pay they’ve earned. It’s time to flip the script and finally hold corporations accountable for pay inequality in America.”

According to the Harris campaign, her equal-pay plan prohibits employers from asking about prior salary throughout the hiring process, bans companies from using forced arbitration agreements in employment contracts for cases of pay discrimination, and would require companies to allow employees to openly discuss their pay.

On top of that, companies would be obligated to report on the women who are the company’s highest earners, the total pay gaps that exist between men and women, irrespective of their job titles, experience, and performance.

As far as federal employers go, all federal contractors would be required to achieve Equal Pay Certification within the first two years of Harris assuming the presidency. If they do not comply, they will be prevented from competing for contracts worth more than $500,00.

Harris has made radicalism a part of her 2020 presidential campaign.

Coming from California, one of the most anti-gun states in the country, Harris has already brought forward radical gun control proposals as part of her presidential campaign.

According to a BLP report, Harris wants to enact gun control via executive action.

Now that she’s going all in on the feminist agenda, Harris has embraced radicalism as a means to differentiate herself from a crowded Democrat field.

The Left Wing Media is Leading a War on Conservatives & Hope To Destroy You

Published

on

At the New Republic, staff write Osita Nwanevu called for the destruction of the GOP.

Nwanevu cited the cases of Donald Trump and Roy Moore as why the GOP should go the way the of the Dodo.

The writer took issue with the Republican National Committee’s decision to continue supporting Moore amid allegations of child molestation. He also criticized the Trump administration for its caging of children at the border.

What bothers Nwanevu the most is how the Republican Party has backed Trump all of this time.

He even tried to link Trump to the previous failed administration George W. Bush.

Nwanevu attempted to draw the comparison below:

Trump’s own rhetoric of division and exclusion was preceded by the 2004 reelection campaign for George W. Bush, which took advantage of homophobia to boost turnout from social conservatives. Before thousands of Puerto Ricans devastated by Hurricane Maria were forced by the Trump administration’s shoddy recovery effort to ask themselves whether they were really Americans after all, thousands of African Americans failed by the Bush administration’s relief efforts after Hurricane Katrina posed the same question to themselves. Trump’s intimations that the federal executive is above the law may well have been bolstered by the Bush administration’s warrantless surveillance of the American people. Even Trump’s efforts to integrate his companies within the processes of the state were preceded by the Bush administration’s curious keenness for contracts with Halliburton, the company Vice President Dick Cheney ran before Bush took office.

The writer also criticized Trump for sowing divisions based on racial lines.

In Nwanevu’s view, “Donald Trump is not a departure from the values defining the Republican Party, but the culmination of its efforts to secure power in this country.”

He took it a step further by describing the Republican party as “a reliable opponent of equality and a malignant force in American life—a cancer within a patient in denial about the nature and severity of her condition” that must ultimately be “destroyed—vanquished from the American political scene with a finality that can only be assured not by electoral politics or structural reforms alone, but by a moral crusade.”

The staff writer gushed about demographics, largely propelled by post-1965 Immigration Act policies, as a main driver of the inevitable political change in America.

The Left is no longer hiding their intentions when it comes to mass migration.

They understood full well its political implications, which is why they constantly brag about the GOP’s upcoming demise.

The GOP should take these threats seriously, and work day and night to re-elect President Trump and take back the U.S. House.

Trump should take the gloves off in his second term and carry out substantial immigration restrictions such as ending birthright citizenship and chain migration, fully funding the border wall, restricting pathways to citizenship, and completely defunding sanctuary cities to deny Democrats the permanent electoral majority they so desire.

The time for talk is over.
