The gender pay gap.
Or is it.
Women have been catching up to minute in the workforce but according to Liberal Democrats.
They get paid a lot less for doing the same work but what is the real story with me now Gretchen Hamel director of public notice and TV personality -- -- Welcome to you both.
And I've this is the big mystery right are women women are really are they they just struggling along waiting for break -- yeah curb the government to help them.
-- I don't know about you but I can not get out of bed this morning without widespread little LIN I mean I called then any coached me and I got out yeah isn't what's going on right now is that women are going to -- holy Grail of this election that's that they were called in 2008 especially single women.
So anything either party can -- right now to talk to those women.
They are doing and this is just another.
Another political gimmick that is happening.
-- -- wanna region this quote from Biden here in this is the vice president on women and all the help they need okay.
What his -- success thanks to government he says both wiser smarter than both of us literally these very accomplished women would not have had a chance without some -- You know I just don't like that the fact that he's publicizing this and making it political because we're getting near the election.
I'm sorry both of those women are very privileged educated women Smart she's a doctor of education.
You know Michelle Obama -- a lawyer please don't make them feel like the poor little woman that that can't get a job I -- not offends me as a woman I've worked very hard in my career.
I'm in sport so final round competing with guys and a male dominated business.
I've done pretty well in my life I've been very fortunate I'm not complaining that I don't make enough money.
I think I'm doing pretty well again -- I wanna talk about some of those dollars though because the big debate is exactly how much do women make.
And -- everybody talks about the -- seven cents on the dollar compared to men and women make it but if you really.
This -- it could be different there -- other numbers out there like 86 cents on the dollar when you look at.
Hourly wages because more women tend to work part time -- we have the number wrong Gretchen.
I mean that's the talk about the -- about when he died -- -- data you have women who have taken off time -- -- their family and have come back of course are going to be unless because they were taken out of the end of the employment sector for awhile so there are a lot of different ways to look at the state into by this stayed at -- I think this one woman is just a false war.
And I think the senate Democrats.
You look before they start pointing fingers because they're not paying their women on average as much as they say they should be I want you to get -- -- to what some of these stamps had to say the -- not catch why Democrats coming -- time.
It's time for Republicans stop denying the reality that millions of women face every day who work -- this can give women.
Women or men as well and they don't want to take it anymore.
How the Republican side of the scale.
Could filibuster this bill is beyond my imagination.
I don't know what they're thinking.
Please please say you know -- thing they didn't get enough votes to stop a filibuster -- into any.
All of the girls that I know that I grew up -- are in the workforce I've never heard one of my girlfriends complain about gender play.
To -- I don't merit based person if you can do the job then you should get paid for it I it's not -- A man vs woman thing to me and I think that's what kind of makes me mad you know on -- mad about that -- you know maybe I don't make quite as much when he is a guy who they think is doing better -- -- going do the job and a better than him so I will get a pay -- I love that OK -- you look at this issue and we talked about it a lot -- UN -- I just can't get past the fact that we already have laws on the books back -- if you -- assume you -- hello there's a lot plaintiff -- -- that Lilly Ledbetter act is out -- -- in back in 2009 President Obama signed it into -- you can actually you know take this to court and file for equal pay.
And there was also another bill back in 2007 and Hillary actually sponsored and it failed to get go anywhere but we have looks.
We have laws on the books about -- sell.
I just don't know -- this is -- and let's remember that this is gonna hurt small businesses you know the people are gonna take on less people they're not gonna wanna hire new people look they're afraid that there's going to be all these regulations or that people are gonna since -- flip previously.
And not to me it's like right now the economy is bad enough as it is and in finding a job is tough enough as it is and you know small businesses -- actually create a lot of jobs in the business sector are not gonna wanna do it some it's not gonna help everybody out there who wants a job anyway correction.
-- politicians just really sucking up to us isn't that what's going on I really want to have vote great Freddie.
Lilly Ledbetter 2009.
You have the women you know issue right now this whole war on women of course this is just a way to get us to vote for it and that's the way to talk to certain sub populations you need to -- -- women are Smart enough Val yeah.
-- -- -- -- -- and I think -- pandering to me I think you're trying to get my -- I don't really believe it because I guess -- when wing.
Biden is out their politicizing.
It makes me feel like he's trying to use something that's not really there.
To make a political statement and I electric where he handed to you were being -- exactly.
