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.
Black Rifle Coffee Does Not Support Second Amendment Hero Kyle Rittenhouse
At this Time, Cons
Black Rifle Coffee, a coffee company based in Salt Lake City, is not defending 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse.
The company said that it was against a tweet that Blaze Media reporter, Elijah Schaeffer, posted that featured Rittenhouse wearing a Black Rifle Coffee Company shirt captioned “Kyle Rittenhouse drinks the best coffee in America.” Rittenhouse was released on November 20, 2020 after supporters were able to raise $2 million for his bail.
In the tweet, Schaeffer posted a discount code for the coffee. Sara Tabin of The Salt Lake Tribune noted that online Twitter users “questioned whether the coffee company had a sponsorship deal with Rittenhouse and accused it of supporting murder and hate.”
This prompted Black Rifle Coffee, the sponsor of the Slightly Offens*ve podcast, to release a statement on November 21 declaring that it is not sponsoring or supporting Rittenhouse.
Initially, there was a misunderstanding about the company withdrawing its sponsorship of Slightly Offens*ve. However, a spokesperson for the company told the Salt Lake Tribune on November 21 that “We are not fluctuating our ad spend.” The coffee spokesperson added “We did have a conversation with Schaffer, and he understands that the post was a mistake.”
She stressed, “We don’t traffic in national tragedy and to us, that’s what this is. We are not legal experts or members of law enforcement. We fully support all law enforcement officials and believe in the integrity of the legal system.”
The spokesperson reiterated that the company will maintain its sponsorship of Blaze Media. She explained: “Our concern is that use of the discount code in the post did not reflect our values. That’s a concern we’ve addressed with the journalist and that he understands.”
Blaze employees “make decisions about how to allocate ad dollars within the Blaze,” she remarked. Although the spokesperson did not go into further detail about the company’s status as a podcast sponsor, it noted that the coffee company and the Blaze are in talks about “how to move forward with the allocation of ad dollars.”
Black Rifle Coffee positions itself as a pro-Second Amendment, conservative company that was founded by veterans. Black Rifle Coffee co-founder Evan Hafer released a statement on November 21 declaring that “We do not support legal advocacy efforts. We do not sponsor nor do we have a relationship with the 17-year-old facing charges in Kenosha, WI.”
At the moment, Rittenhouse is facing two counts of first-degree murder for shooting and killing Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber during a Black Lives Matter riot back in August. In addition, he’s being charged with one count of being a minor in possession of a firearm. During the riots, Rittenhouse was attacked by Rosenbaum. Rittenhouse was carrying an AR-style rifle as he was walking down the street to protect private property from looters.
It is disappointing to see supposedly pro-Second Amendment businesses fold to the mob. Although the Left is very effective at mass politics and causing certain businesses to get cancelled, some businesses will have to take a stand. Submission to these radicals only encourages them to become bolder in their attacks.
