Hello 1950s!

Mother Jones has a great article on a Supreme Court decision pretty much saying, "Bump you woman! Men should get paid more!"

Check it out. Get mad.

The very fact that these large corporations were gloating over their victory and pressuring Senators to reject the new Act should bring about a red flag in the eye of the public.

What should they be excited about in this case? If it wasn't an issue of unequal pay, then the only interested party would have been Goodyear in that they wouldn't have to pay over $3 million. But it is clear that this case has set up an extremely dangerous president for unequal pay cover-ups in the future. Why else would companies not involved in Goodyear's unequal pay show the case any interest?
