Forgive my ignorance, but what fiasco are you referencing
occurred with Title IX? Rather than raising women's wages and thereby
raising costs, that is a quantum leap based on failed economic theory that
even Alan Greenspan has had to come to grips with more than likely we'll see
men's wages cut down, if men's wages are cut you can believe it will not be done
to raise women's but rather be done to increase profits-with the reason offered
(however untrue) that "we had to pay the women equally"
and a bunch of men out there who see the women as the reason why they're pay
checks are now down, as designed and hoped for by those who bring you the news
that the economy is doing really well and, oh by the way, the big layoffs of
10's of thousands of employees are a sure sign of that economic health. For whom
-- might one ask. Divide and conquer is still the best strategy keeping women
and men from seeing that each are used by the system.
