Hell yeah, Mikulski is our liberal bulldog over here in the Senate.

Fight! Fight! Fight!

Love voting for that woman.

would also like to see a "Living Wage" standard set in Seattle. That way we wouldn't need to subsidize as much low income (or "affordable") housing and make people live in Charles' micro-units (that he doesn't live in).

I don't have a problem with reporting pay scales, but who gets to decide when two different jobs "are comparable in skill, effort, responsibility, and working conditions"? What if those two different jobs simply dont bring as much profit to a company? Or if there's simply a lot more candidates for one than the other?

At some point you have to rely on the market to make those sorts of judgements; and given women's college graduation rates, I suspect the scales will start tipping in their favor.

And the 77 cents metric is across all job categories, all experience levels, all seniorities. In other words, it's meaningless.

More like 93 to 95.2 cents on the dollar.
