Changing America reports:
An Arizona Republican Senate candidate recently waved off the existence of a gender pay gap in the U.S., arguing that the measure is merely a myth perpetuated by Democrats and when controlling for “dangerous” jobs that are mostly held by men, “things are actually pretty equal.”
“Women are not paid less in America than men,” Blake Masters, who is running to unseat Sen. Mark Kelly (D), says in video footage from a February candidates forum in Scottsdale, Arizona that was obtained and first reported by NBC News this week.
“It’s a left-wing narrative, this gender pay gap,” Masters says during the forum while arguing against the need for the Equal Rights Amendment, which would prohibit sex-based discrimination.
Read the full article. Masters, who is bankrolled by homocon Peter Thiel, last appeared on JMG when he declared that the Supreme Court ruling legalizing contraception should be returned to the states to decide. Trump has not yet made an endorsement in the race.
Senate hopeful Blake Masters says there’s no such thing as a gender pay gap. Apparently, we women would do just fine if only we all went to Alaska and fished for crab. https://t.co/QFiCXH0eUG via @azcentral
