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.
Merrick Garland Suggests that Getting Rid of Lawsuit Protections is Not a Second Amendment Violation
Garland as AG will be a disaster for the right to bear arms.
If Merrick Garland is nominated as Attorney General, the Second Amendment is in big trouble.
Based on his comments at a Senate hearing on February 22, 2021, Garland made a suggestion that the repeal of lawsuit protections for gun manufacturers is not unconstitutional.
AWR Hawkins of Breitbart News reminded his readers that President Joe Biden campaigned on a platform of repealing the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), which shielded lawful gun manufacturers from lawsuits.
In a previous Breitbart News report, Biden spoke at an MSNBC forum in 2019 alongside gun control organizations such as March for Our Lives where he expressed his support for gun manufacturers to be subject to lawsuits.
At the speech, Biden suggested that the PLCC be repealed. He declared, “No other outfit in history has gotten this kind of protection” and asserted that the legal actions would bring about “change overnight.”
In a subsequent occasion on February 7, 2020, Breitbart News covered Biden’s remarks to a New Hampshire crowd, in which he stated that it was a “mistake” to shield firearms manufacturers from lawsuits. He continued, “The first thing I’m going to do as president is work to get rid of that.”
Later that month, Breitbart News recalled how Biden called out gun manufacturers at a South Carolina rally and boasted, “I’m going to take you down.”
According to a report by The Salt Lake Tribune, Utah Senator Mike Lee asked Garland about his views on removing protections for gun manufacturers. Garland responded, “I have not thought myself deeply about this. I don’t think it raises a Second Amendment issue.”
When he was questioned if he is in favor of Biden’s plans to ban so-called “assault weapons”, Garland responded, “Where there is room under the law for the president’s policies to be pursued, then I think the president is entitled to pursue them.”
Biden’s track record as a gun control proponent is well-documented. From his support of gun-free zones at schools to the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban, Biden is Gun Control Inc.’s guy. With Democrats in control of the House and the Senate, there will most certainly be attempts to ram gun control down our throats. If they can’t beat us legislatively, they will most certainly use the courts to undermine the Second Amendment. Pro-gun organizations should be ready to lawyer up and use whatever means possible to keep courts from destroying our rights.
