for the most part, yes....but as Homer would realize if he worked in business instead of government, there are other factors that enter into compensation....such as potential for future advancement, need to increase compensation to retain employee, etc.....
truth is that some businesses pay women and minorities more to attract them to meet quotas for government contracts....is that fair???...
Show me proof of this 'businesses pay women and minorities more to attract them'

Same thing that Obamacare is except even more extreme. MA mandates employers with more than 10 employees offer health care insurance to their employees or face stiff penalties. If a resident does not have insurance they will face a tax fine.
Obama adopted a very similar plan and Republicans are screaming that it's hurting job creation.
Thing is-it's INDIVIDUALLY AFFORDABLE. Now if they just alotted for half cost tax deductions--NICE!

EXPERIENCE!
I believe income is income.

A heavy equipment operator can make a 100K a year. The rate in hos bracket is likely 25%.

Romney can make $100K on an investment through capital gains &would pat 15%.

What about that is fair?

The local hardware invests in inventory & pays 35% on their profits. Romney invests & pays 15%. What s fair about that?

The wealthy have rigged the system & dummies like you are too stupid to know it.

Romney/ryan's plan........what is his plan? Knock 7 points off the top rate while knocking 3 off most middle class.

Meanwhile back at the ranch:

NEW YORK, N.Y.- A conservative scholar behind a high-grossing documentary film that condemns President Barack Obama is under investigation by the evangelical college he leads over a report he took a woman who is not his wife to an event on Christian values.

The King's College board announced the review on Tuesday, the day the conservative Christian newsmagazine WORLD reported event organizers had confronted Dinesh D'Souza about sharing a hotel room with a woman he introduced as his fiancee. D'Souza filed for divorce from his wife, Dixie D'Souza, a few days after the conference, California court records show.

Based on the answer he DID give (that they actually sough women to FILL positions) I would assume via applying some actual THOUGHT, that the pay was the same.
THAT-and add a little more of some "critical thinking" (notice --NOT just critical..but THINKING)
I don't think Massachusetts cabinet members jobs change pay rates based on gender either Homer---DUH???!!!!!!!

I'm really proud of the company I work for. They are conservative, but respect the laws of the country. They reinvest their profits back into the business. They offer bonuses based on how well the profits are. They hire people when they need them because they know that we can generate more income from them. They offer jobs to both men and women even if they have children as well as offering benefits to all fulltime employees. I'm in a position in my company where I hear about their values on a high level and they really feel like it is their duty to do right by their employees. That it is the right thing to do. It's a family business so it's not all about profits.

When Republicans here talk about owners and Business leaders that should be able to do whatever they want with their money, I agree, but that doesn't mean I think it's the right thing to do nor the right thing for our country and it's people.

I support the President who will support the same values that I see in the company I work for. Not a company that wants to take business to another country and not a company that looks more at the bottom line then the people they employ.

not universally true....
in our business, clients often express a preference for one employee to work on their project in preference to another....this will inevitably affect compensation and create inequalities for the same position....
Homer probably thinks all school teachers should be paid the same, regardless of performance.....
Homer likes communism. He thinks everyone should live in the same type of house, drive the same Prius, abort the same amount of babies and get the same tattoos.

That wasn't the question you nitwit.

The person asked if he was in favor of equal pay for women.

Romney babbled on about his cabinet as Gov. of MA years ago, which has nothing to do with anything.

He should have said yes or no.

In effect; he did say no. So there you have it you moran.

There is no equal. It is an eternal quest for white male power, everyone else be damned.
The whining white male loves to whine that he cannot get a job because of minorities or women; bristles to work under a woman or minority. It's that entitlement attitude.
As Anne says "it's ourrrrr turrrrnnnnn"
