Republicans Screw The Middle Class – ‘Rubio Says Women Can Sue To Close The Wage Gap But Also Doesn’t Want More Lawsuits’
‘Though he offered up lawsuits as the remedy for unequal pay, Rubio is against the Paycheck Fairness Act because it would result in more lawsuits.
‘When asked by members of the work/family organization Make It Work why he has voted against the Paycheck Fairness Act multiple times, Republican presidential candidate Sen. Marco Rubio (FL) indicated that the gap shouldn’t even exist today’.
“It’s already illegal to pay women less than men,” he responded. “If I pay a woman less than a man for the same job, it’s illegal now. You can be sued now.”
“The Paycheck [Fairness] Act, all it did was allow trial lawyers to sue,” he said. “The reason I voted against it is because…all it really did is just help lawyers sue.”
