    have an enforcement regime? women are still getting paid less than men for comparable jobs.

    i was googling for something else and stumbled upon legislation ted kennedy had passed during the 80s. it was supposed to ensure pay parity for women. and yet we still don't have it.

    what's the point of passing legislation that lacks teeth? other than placating angry constituents.

    our one demand? return what was stolen.
