Senate GOP blocks bill to combat gender pay gap

Source: The Hill

Senate Republicans on Tuesday blocked legislation aimed at addressing pay inequality, marking their second successful use of the filibuster under President Biden.

Senators voted 49-50 to try to advance the legislation, falling short of the 60 votes needed to overcome the procedural hurdle.

The bill would limit employers to "bona fide" factors such as education, training and experience when justifying pay differentials in wage discrimination claims.

Employers would also be prohibited from retaliating against workers who compare salaries and barred from inquiring about prospective employees' salary histories during the hiring process.

2. I predict...

... this will be a pattern. We have one "reconciliation" bill left this year? If so, negotiate with the moderate Dems and get it done.

4. Reminds me of Bill Maher's rant...

...about the GOP looking at things and asking “What would a dick do”?

9. Did any of them say why they voted against it?

I can't imagine how they could justify their indefensible vote.
