Obama Uses Executive Power to Close Pay Gap

President Obama has been talking about the gender pay gap since the day he decided to run for president, freely using the slanted statistics that feminist organizations use to prop up this fake controversy. Over the last seven years, though, Obama has been able to do almost nothing about it. Republicans, who understand that there are already discrimination laws in place, have blocked his absurd attempts to legislate the problem away. Now, as is his usual way, Obama is going to use his executive power to force the issue.

On Friday, the administration announced that companies will be forced to report to the federal government what they pay their employees. These reports must be broken down into demographic categories like race, gender, and ethnicity. Any business with more than 100 employees will be required to supply this information.

“Too often, pay discrimination goes undetected because of a lack of accurate information about what people are paid,” said Jenny Yang, the chairwoman of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. “We will be using the information that we’re collecting as one piece of information that can inform our investigations.”

It’s not yet clear what the administration will do with the reports, but White House officials said they will use the information to give the government more power to bring penalties against businesses engaging in discrimination. Because obviously, if women are being paid less than men, the only possible answer is that there is discrimination afoot.

Was there once a time when anti-discrimination laws had their place? Sure. But that time has come and gone. The laws are there. They are being enforced. Employers know good and well that they face perilous lawsuits if they intentionally scale wages against women. It simply doesn’t happen anymore.

So why does the wage gap persist? Well, there’s this thing called the free market. And in that free market, people are paid according to their worth. What determines worth? The list is endless: education, experience, practical results, imagination, intelligence…all of these things and more can make a person more valuable in the marketplace. Guess what? Employers want to hire people who will make their companies better. 99% of them don’t give a damn if those people are white, black, male, female, brown-eyed or blue. They want results.

With this kind of excessive tampering, the Obama administration is trying to fix a problem that doesn’t exist. And in doing so, they will undoubtedly create a whole new series of real problems that will hinder the economy. Great job, guys.

When will this nightmare end?

  1. Over the last seven years, 0bama has been able to do almost nothing about gender pay gap because 0bama really doesn’t give a rats arse about pay gaps, never did.

    Pay gaps have very little to do with forcing a nation into socialism and slavery.

  2. My baloney has a first name, it’s B-A-R-A-K,
    My baloney has a second name, it’s O-B-A-M-A!
    Oh, I’d like to chuck him in the trash and if you ask me, “Why?”, I’ll saaaaaaaaaaaaayyyy….
    ‘Cause Barak Obama has a way of messing up the USA!!

  3. Gregory Sarmas Sr.

    when he’s gone,thats when it will end.

    • I wouldn’t bet on that!!!! This country has been on a downward spiral since the 60’s and it appears to be gaining speed-

    • Sorry but it won’t end until All, musloids and Americans, those who supported and voted for him are gone, he is more of a symptom than a disease or wound.

      • The new president (if a Repub) can start by firing every ZAR and conspirator he has hired in his staff and sending them on their way. And then he can start thinning out the top tier of the State Department and the IRS as well as those responsible for downgrading the VA and killing the Veterans that are dying because of the delays of appointments. He!! just start a new government and make every Senator and Congressman re-take the oath to uphold the Constitution of the United States of Amereica

    • Not if the communist or the airhead win . It will be the same old, same old if not worse .

      • Do you think it really matters what POS gets the job???
        Don’t get upsided, I’m not besmirching trump, but what has the representation? we’ve had accomplished except coalesce the establishment??? Five decades of degradation may take the same time[if possible] to correct~

  4. Try starting with the white house staff and Hillary’s staff, both of which show significant differences between the genders.

  5. Sorry Mr Obama, this is private information – if you get any of my employees to sign a release for that info I can provide it but otherwise it is not available to ANYONE! So, give me a form to give to each individual employee and they can sign it if they wish, if not, too bad!

  6. I also understand that Obama has a problem with pay gaps for women and minorities!

  7. When there is NO gap, there is no freedom. We’ll be a socialist nation. There’s a reason for gaps and as the article notes, it has absolutely nothing to do with gender, race, sexual preference or any of the other idiot classes this administration has now devised. You have two clerks, one black male, one white female. Both are married. Both have children. The male has been employed by the company for 10 years. The woman has been with the company for six months. Right off the bat, the pays aren’t the same because of seniority and experience. Add in a sick child…the male clerk’s wife stays home with the child; the female clerk takes a day out to take care of her child. Every month, that women takes at least one day out because of menstrual cramps. Then she doesn’t get it one month and learns she’s pregnant. In 9 months, she will be putting in for a 3 month leave. During that 9 months, she’s coming in late because of morning sickness; she’s out more often because she’s sick; she takes more time off to see doctors for prenatal care. She comes back after her maternity leave is over, and in 3 months takes another 2 weeks off for vacation, since that’s different time from maternity leave. Meanwhile, the male clerk hasn’t missed a beat.

    Professionals…lawyers. One is desparately seeking partnership and puts in 70+ hours a week, hasn’t taken vacation, hasn’t taken sick time, and brings in an average of 4 new clients per month. The other just started, partnership is ten years off, just out of law school has no client list and isn’t bringing in any new business, takes time off for vacation and sick time, and when the clock strikes 5, is outta there!

    No two workers are exactly the same doing the same work and putting in the same hours without interruption, unless they’re working the line in a plant or tilling a field. And in those cases, the unions make sure that the inequality in work ethic is met with equal pay because these workers are counted as workers, without any consideration to performance, ethics, loyalty, or anything else for which bennies don’t account.

    • Don’t ya just love fckn unions? The demise of the american worker for greed~

      • There was a time that unions were necessary for workers to protect themselves, before Laws and Regulations infringed upon Art.1, Section 8 Constitutional limits. Now we have Government grown huge to micro-manage our lives, and supposedly protect the workers. It always seems to work out to benefit the Big $-supporters of Big-Government, unfortunately..

        • Agree, laws on the books, make Unions obsolete, BUT they love that money they take from your check. Unions hate right to work states, and don’t give a S–t about the workers families, I know first hand.

          • Your rite, but in “most”, if not all situations, it’s the employee that wants MORE money for LESS work-
            Unions are getting paid by useless employees to SELL them to the employer[exploit] for more than their worth- e.g., education, local, state, federal-
            PRIVATE entities have the “option”[as have been at alarming rates] of closing, relocating, and leaving the country- TAXPAYERS have NOT an option and are screwed!!!!!!~

        • True, but that time is past. Also isn’t a government union against the constitution? An oxymoron at least.

          • No, none, absolutely not, should any taxpayer funded entity be unionized!!!!!
            The ignorance of our youth is profoundly attributed

          • Yes, that is kind of what I said, I think public employee unions are in violation of our Constitution. But unions in general have outlived their need, and have morphed into a giant funding machine for the demoncrats, and the criminals in charge of them. They do nothing for the common workers.

          • Back at you Brother.

          • They love the dues….civilians have one…they protect duds….can’t strike though..in fact remember when the ATC tried back in 80 and Reagan canned them all? Too hard to fire a gov employee though.

          • A couple of things here, one, in the federal sector for those that may be in a bargaining unit, dues paying membership in a labor organization (union) is not mandatory, and two, you are correct… federal civil service workers are prohibited by law from striking against their employer, the U.S. government, that is the tax paying public. That should be true and enforced at ALL levels of government. But President Reagan did not fire all of the ATC’s, only those that went on strike and refused to return to work. I worked for the FAA at the time and recall the efforts that were made to recruit ATC’s from other divisions of the agency and elsewhere in order to rebuild the ATC personnel rolls.

          • Clay…I’m retired military and DAC…I never said the dues was mandatory as I will never belong to an union. And ATC..I never said he fired ALL of them…the “all” was the ones that went on strike. I know as I had a 104.1 on my ATC score due to military but they wouldn’t hire me even though I was a pilot with a 2nd class medical because a doctor made a false statement about a hospitalization that I had. The FAA took my 2nd class medical and once I was over the age limit to be an ATC they let me have my 2nd class back. But my original statement was they tried to go on strike and were canned….same for the rest of the civilians….no strike just a group to bargain, take your money and help the ones that should be fired.

          • No doubt about that.
            Semper Fi

          • I’m just curious here… just what would lead you to believe that a “government union,” at any level of government may be against the constitution?

        • The unions are always protecting those that need their help because they are worthless in the workforce and hope the unions can help them keep their position when they should have been fired. I’ve never been in a union and they are worse than HOAs. Suck up money and only help shitheads and themselves!

      • My union fully supported Hussein Obama even though most of us didn’t. Did they care? Not in the least!

      • Corrupt Unions along with Diversity & Affirmative Action will kill us all!

    • Stated so very well. Hit the nail squarely on the head.

  8. I hear that in North Dakota they’re naming a toxic waste dump after Obozo.
    Hear! Hear!

  9. Isn’t the fraudulent gay muslim communist LIAR supposed to be a constitutional scholar?
    The only reason he studied the constitution (while spitting on it) was to figure out how to bypass, ignore and violate it.
    but wait,…….why is he acting like a fraudulent gay muslim communist…….?

    Impeach & execute the bastard for treason!

  10. Maybe Barry, the Phony, will leave the Mosque with a prayer that asks for his legacy to include all these downright silly ideas that stink of his ignorance. Since other deity figures have apparently let him down, he thinks the Muslims will grace him with everlasting life or maybe his leaving his spouse.

  11. If there is anyone in Congress with at least one aggie, please get the impeachment ball rolling.

  12. I would never higher no women in companies I own especially construction all they know how to do is holler discrimination,have babies out of wedlock and steal money from a man and are money hungry b#tches

  13. Asshole fuckin Muslim Obama is nothing but a piece of shit whether it’s human or dog shit just like his family and friends

  14. What can we do?? The companies that are required by this unlawful act can ignore the law that he proposes and make the administration take each and every one of these companies to court individually. Can one imagine how long it will take for him and his desire to dictate to this nation every whim he has to take us into his GULAG

  15. Screw the people on fixed income – He wants $15.00 an hour raise, Social Security gets a couple of bucks a month and they increase the Medicare costs out of that !

    • Everyone is on a fixed income unless you work on commission…and yes everything usually goes up except wages…I have been retired for 13 years from the military and make basically the same retirement as when I left. And the SS statement every year tells me and my wife that we will get less and less when we can start drawing that. When you pay everyone the same wage no matter what they do and know then you are discouraging advancement and experience. I have worked years in the military in jobs where women weren’t allowed to go and always two standards except for pay. My wife is retired military and she always did what expected too. She had a BA while I had an AAS shouldn’t she have gotten more pay then? Next he’ll want quotas and screw up the civilian companies like they did the military. Shouldn’t he sign an EO to stop giving away our tax dollars to illegals and muslim countries????

      • Probably 90% of foreign aid is a waste and should be stopped . Iran says ” death to America ” and stupid dick tater gives them 1 and 1/2 billion $ adding to our trillions of $ in debt ! Our military is scattered all over the world in places we should keep our noses out of . We need a radical change to fix the radical change that O’Bama did to our country . Trump, Cruz ? Jim Webb was a good democrat that I would’ve voted for but they dumped him in favor of the communist and airhead .

        • Agreed….and why can’t we bring all of our military home and just guard our borders in defense of the American tax payers? Pay should be equal on qualifications and your contribution to the effort. Next he’ll do an EO so all sports players get the same pay….they don’t because each person is paid by their worth. If we paid him by his worth he’d have to pay the US government back.

      • Working has its rewards, sometime it is not higher pay but satisfaction in a job well done. As a military retiree of 28 years, retired for almost thirty year, I started as an E-1 advanced to E-9 while gaining my degree was selected and retired as an 0-4. Forethought and self disciple has a lot to do with advancement and salary in any profession. Their are many PHd’s, some in basket weaving, that still drawing minimum wage at the jobs they enjoy, poor selection in education subject or just too old for full time. Redistribution or equalization is just a a socialist folly for domination and economic slavery not self identification and advancement nor pay status. I agree with your thoughts about illegals.

    • This year, NO increase in SS, but Medicare was increased, also part D more than doubled and so di co-pays, so in reality I get less, since I didn’t work full time when kids were small and did Pvt. Duty after hubby died, so I could be home with them as needed, I get no Ret. and his Co. reniged on their part, to pay me part of his. Long story but I got it ROYALY

  16. Shared from a friend long but worth the read.

    A thought to remember, Marx said, “Remove one freedom per generation and soon you will have no freedom and no one would have noticed.”

    There was a chemistry professor in a large college that had some exchange students in the class. One day while the class was in the lab, the professor noticed one young man, an exchange student, who kept rubbing his back and stretching as if his back hurt. The professor asked the young man what was the matter. The student told him he had a bullet lodged in his back. He had been shot while fighting communists in his native country who were trying to overthrow his country’s government and install a new communist regime. In the midst of his story, he looked at the professor and asked a strange question.

    He asked: “Do you know how to catch wild pigs?” The professor thought it was a joke and asked for the punch line. The young man said that it was no joke. “You catch wild pigs by finding a suitable place in the woods and putting corn on the ground. The pigs find it and begin to come every day to eat the free food.”When they are used to coming every day, you put a fence down one side of the place where they are used to coming. When they get used to the fence, they begin to eat the corn again and you put up another side of the fence. “They get used to that and start to eat again. You continue until you have all four sides of the fence up with a gate in the last side.

    “The pigs, which are used to the free corn, start to come through the gate to eat that free corn again. You then slam the gate on them and catch the whole herd.

    Suddenly the wild pigs have lost their freedom. They run around and around inside the fence, but they are caught. Soon they go back to eating the free corn. They are so used to it that they have forgotten how to forage in the woods for themselves, so they accept their captivity.”The young man then told the professor that is exactly what he sees happening in America . The government keeps pushing us toward Communism/Socialism and keeps spreading the free corn out in the form of programs such as supplemental income, tax credit for unearned income, tax exemptions, tobacco subsidies, dairy subsidies, payments not to plant crops (CRP), welfare entitlements, medicine, drugs, etc., while we continually lose our freedoms, just a little at a time.

    One should always remember two truths: There is no such thing as a free lunch, and you can never hire someone to provide a service for you cheaper than you can do it yourself. If you see that all of this wonderful government “help” is a problem confronting the future of democracy in America , you might want to share this with your friends.

  17. Obama CANNOT force private companies to do anything! Not even Congress! Remember, it was Congress that made corporations people! People have rights, under the Constitution! And NO Obama, you cannot force companies to hand over their HR files! Go straight to hell..no detours. This is part, and parcel, for shoving Marxism down our throats! I am a woman, and I believe in equal pay, for equal work…but not this way! I fought in the 1970’s, to become one of the first female street police officers. I passed all the tests, including physical…and I was paid the starting salary for male, or female police officers. Sadly..it was only $8750 a year. But it was MINE!

  18. This is what you get when EBT suckers vote in a DICKtating community organizer that lost his law license!!! Can’t fix STUPID with at racist idiot oxygen thief!

    • Don’t look now but we’re facing exactly the same thing in this election with Sanders. It’s a given (imho) that Hillary is toast. The overwhelming excitement on the Democrat side is Sanders, simply because there’s only two choices…him or Hillary. But what’s just as bad as the EBT parasites, is two generations of idiots brought up on liberal BS who have been taught capitalism sucks and socialism is the answer. And because they’ve been taught to be just as delusional as Obama, they actually believe the nonsense they’ve been taught! They have absolutely nothing to refer to or go back to, because liberals have rewritten history so these people have no clue what our true history, heritage and culture is.

      • And I’m afraid that those ignorant EBT suckers, libturd dead folks and illegals outnumber the working folks with a brain and we will be lost forever when they get their socialist criminal into the WH! Maybe that’s why the founding fathers had landowners as voters??? So the suckers can’t vote themselves into perpetual sucking off of the taxpayers dime.

        • EXACTLY, why should some POS entitlement loser vote to defraud the home or landowner that supports their useless scum existence- BS BS BS~

          • Truth hurts though huh? The democracy will be gone once the suckers dry up the workers. But you call them “entitlement losers”? If you know what the word really means…then sucking government down becasue someoen refuses to work their fair share as the current POS claims. The following quote is coming to pass and the current DICKtator feels he’ll be ruler.
            “A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the people discover they can vote themselves largess out of the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the canidate promising the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that democracy always collapses over a loose fiscal policy–to be followed by a dictatorship.”
            ― Alexander Fraser Tytler

          • GFY!!!!! I NEVER stated “entitlement worker”- Try reading or comprehending what was stated in context not your opine– And fck ur unions~

          • damn dude are you for real? I never said that you said “entitlement worker” I said that you said “entitlement losers”…You mentioned comprehension???? Read my statement again and then read what you wrote. You may need some help with your anger too….seek some.

          • I know wtf I wrote, it’s what you interpreted incorrectly!!!! I never mentioned compensation!!!!
            Try reading the post that I replied-
            U= “ignorant EBT suckers”, I= “POS entitlement loser”- An assimilated statement, is it not???
            Not anger, just correcting testy dudes?- Take a couple aspirin and a nap~

          • OK take your own medicine and GFY! You are proof that idiots should stay in school past the 3rd grade and their breeders should not marry their own family members. EBT is not an entitlement.

          • You are truly disgusting as a citizen and a human being!

          • Hey, that I am, and you suck dick~

      • Burning books and rewriting history is a part of communism. I remember the movie news reels when Castro came to power and they had large book burnings. The same happened in Bolivia when the communist came in. Today, so many people and students do not read books and info online can be deleted and changed. If you are over 50, think of some things you studied in Social Studies, next, locate a current Soc St text and see how “history” has been rewritten.

        • MICHELLE OBAMA: “Barack knows that we are going to have to make
          sacrifices; we are going to have to change our conversation; we’re going
          to have to change our traditions, our history; we’re going to have to
          move into a different place as a nation.”
          There it is folks, from the stooge that proclaimed, “for the first time in my adult life I am proud of my country”

          • And the racist couple divided and made sure that Americans sacrificed so they could vacation around the globe and every Christmas in HI….but they NEVER went there for Christmas before 2009…..nice to be worth some $400k in 2008 and $12 million in 2016 from a $400k/year job. They sure changed America for the world to hate now.

          • I apologize b/c I can’t provide a citation, but I recently read a list showing how many personal assistants each of the “First Ladies” had, going back to Mamie Eisenhower.
            Mamie had one — and her assistant was paid out of Ike’s salary. When Bill was POTUS, Hillary had 6 assistants (paid by the taxpayers). All the other FLOTUS had just one (taxpayer-funded) personal assistant, except for Michelle Obama — who has 22 of them, with combined salaries costing the taxpayers approximately $2.2 million a year (more than 5 times the President’s salary). And that doesn’t include her hairdresser.

          • I saw that too…not sure if it’s fact but you know the ubumer’s keep saying everyone has to do their fair share…THEIR fair share is wasting and stealing the tax payers money as they are both suckers of tax dollars and hate America and what she stands for. I liken then to parasitic feral animals that they are. We got the change and hope he promised….he CHANGED us into a loosing country and now real Americans are HOPING we can recover in the future now. He really needs the Mussolini treatment.

          • 22 assistants! WTF! Does she need someone to tuck her/his weiner in a girdle so it doesn’t show?! That is ridiculous! If a first lady wants more than 1 assistant then she should pay for it!

          • And doesn’t include her vacation trips–which are also numerous …paid by us.

      • That’s why I believe that only property owners, those born on American soil, and those over 30 years of age should be allowed to vote!

    • Hate to correct spelling, but isn’t that Dicktasting? LOL

  19. I worked a job that paid based on merit.. It was based on your performance. Sure many wanted to make more income,without doing the work it required to achieve the higher pay. As a matter of fact many who were based on hourly rate that were poor performers we could not get rid of due to the federal govt. . They were a bleed on the system and sucked the company down. The hourly pay scale was based on the job title not sex,race,religion or any thing else. If a woman filled the job she got paid what every one else did with that job title. I never worked hourly jobs that paid different by the sexes or any thing else.

  20. Obama is an idiot and the rest of your professional polittions are a bunch of gutless wonders or they would have already impeached him and Hillary would have already been in prison that’s why we’re voting for Trump maybe it’s not to late to do both so go TRUMP for president 2016 and go hillary to prison 2016

  21. At first i thought he was doing something with federal employees only. Reading further he is forcing commercial companies to report wages to a special federal group. (companies already report this information in discrete tax forms.) It is possible for congress to make a law for doing this. What obama is doing is illegal because he does not have law making authority.

    • As an employer, just ignore it, it can’t be enforced.

    • federal employees are paid by series, grade and steps by time in service…of course anyone can file a discrimination complaint though. There is no hiding their pay…it’s available to the world if you know what grade and step they are.

        • And….it is on line for ALL to see….no need to send it anywhere. There is NO pay difference as all in each series, grade, and steps are paid the same regardless of sex, color or religion.

          • Ok, This is somewhat true for federal employees. But as the article states this wage reporting is going to be done for ALL employees including non government commercial companies. they are not required to pay wages to a government salary scale.

          • I was just replying to the federal employee side when you thought that was the intent….he has that data…not sure they can force employers to report individual employees salaries as then why would they need it?? Are they going to require a copy of the annual evaluations and then set up another Gov agency to ensure they are getting paid by their evaluation? He is just putting his nose into something he has NO business doing. Nothing but a DICKtator that needs to go away.

        • Ability, understanding of the English language, criminal acts, fraud, perjury, motivation have NOTHING to do with FED/GOV pay rates, bonuses, perks…. SILENCE is all important.

  22. Another way to proportion welfare out to his political and economic slaves. Just another “make me king” ploy.

  23. The unqualified president, who hates this country, continues to make decisions as if he were still a neighborhood organizer!!! He is the king of deception, master of dissension, and organizer of a caliphate, right here in the USA; bringing Muslims into the country, and placing them in states throughout the country. He gives billions to Islamic nations, craps on Israel, gives Iran the bomb, and has deviously denigrated the Christianity this country was foundered on. When is the house and the senators going to stop this tyrant from totally destroying America!!!!!

    • And you still are only just saying what is best about him. I don’t think he deserves as much credit as you are giving him. The House and Senate just gave obamao everything he wanted, so don’t look for any honesty-in-their-oath from them.

  24. I wonder if they will force this on MLB and the NFL? The results would be interesting.

  25. HAD ENOUGH OF THIS FOOL

  26. Obbamy and his social demolition of America, it embraces absurdity and delusion.

  27. Good move, now can I borrow the plane to fly to Scotland and take a golfing vacation? You see, us Seniors and Retired Military got zippo in any increase and you say the economy is better? Fkn wake up and resign.

    • True, actually got a cut, my Part D went up as did co-pays, and the Medi-care part B also went up.

      • Thank the Rinos and Democrats for the consideration, make sure you vote AND give a ride to your conservative friends to vote. Can’t lose our country.

        • My son will take me to the polls, I vote every election even local and have since the first time I voted in 1954, for IKE

          • don’t worry you’ll be voting democrap once you pass on…the criminal libturds will ensure that.

          • A Republican voter for a lifetime changes at death = thanks to the PC LiberalTARDS & DemonicRATS.

          • We all vote dumocrap after death!!!!!!! The only way they can ensure their idiot oxygen thief can get into the WH. And people hate the GOP because they believe they should be able to keep their earnings instead of the socialist in the government who believe they have the right to give it away.

  28. Another illegal act by the illegal president!

  29. Talk about big brother watching.

  30. So, if some guy deserves a bonus because of merit, he can’t get one until some female coworker gets one too? What if she hasn’t done anything to deserve it? The definition of Fascism is when the government has total control of private business, so that the term “private” exists in name only.

  31. The nightmare will end when liberals are not allowed to hold office until they at least re-trained in free market thinking which sadly will never happen

  32. If I didn’t know better, BHO is playing games with peoples lives and the way everything works. If something isn’t exactly the way he wants, then it must be discrimination. Everybody is being picked on by the big bad WHITE MAN who is being mean to all the WHITE WOMEN, BLACK WOMEN, etc etc. Whether it exists or not, if he says it is so, why BHO said it, so it must be true. THAT MAN WOULD NOT KNOW THE TRUTH IF IT BIT HIM ON THE BUTT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  33. Just another un-constitutional farce. The President cannot make any laws. The Congress can, and only the congress.

  34. As usual ,,A POWER GRAB,,and AS USUAL,the FEDERAL LEGISLATIVE BRANCH has THEIR HEADS BURIED UP obamas REAR,collecting/banking THEIR UNEARNED PAY!!

  35. OBOZO IS STUPID HE WOULD HAVE A HARD TIME DOING ICE CREAME CONES TO DAY. BE A BETTER SHEEP HEARDER AND THEY COULD KEEP HIM COMPANY

  36. Obama’s job is to create chaos any which way he can. This is yet another way to do it.

  37. This is at least as moronic as EVERYTHING else this idiot and his merry band of miscreants have come up with. As the article stated; “It’s not yet clear what the administration will do with the reports, but the White House said they will use the information to give the government MORE POWER”!!!! Everyone MUST remember that Hitlery has proclaimed that if she is elected president, not only will she uphold all of these ridiculous policies, she’ll EXPAND on them!!!

  38. Just great, another added cost to employers now to pay someone to send more info. to Washington. This guy just loves to mess with business he knows nothing about.

  39. See? You were wrong… President Obama CAN do great things!!! 🙂 Silly whiners!

  40. John Wesley Bletsch

    Rights a wrong that is propped up by fictitious data and does it by executive fiat and blatantly unconstitutional action. Again Bari writes and signs a law from the palace of Caesar and empress Valerie. You do not actually believe Bari writes these tomes of executive tyranny do you?

  41. This is the typical cesspool where liberal loons love to swim. It makes them feel good. “We care,” they say to themselves. “It makes us much better than you.” I can see Slick Willie now, biting his lip, a tear running now his chubby cheeks as he groans, “I feel your pain.” The tear, though, is for a 22 year old intern whom he will no longer be able to see. The jig is up. Slick Willie left the essence of Willie on a blue dress and has been nailed as a liar and an adulterer. And all Barack Obama is doing is “fundamentally transforming America” into a wussy Euro-nanny state where the Constitution is treated like last night’s garbage. And he does it with his pen and telephone while the GOP-led House of Representatives and the GOP-led Senate, all cowards, stand by doing nothing as our country goes down the drain. Vote Trump. Make America great again!.

  42. Just another power grab by someone that has never worked a day in his life.

  43. Dennis B Anderson

    Obie is aiming high and shooting low. Maybe he will go for a sissy secretary job, or dog governor of Chico, California.

    • Horse hockey…baloney…..you only listen to the FemininNAZI’s …..get rid of the colon mucus covering your head!

      • Dennis B Anderson

        Ill f u with it and bury you with it. When you work for something then you will know what its like to be giving it away away to fungus.When the free stuffs gone so will you be.I cant wait for martial law so I can start shooting rats wholesale.

      • Lets see even back in world war 11 the Muslim Brotherhood was fighting with the Nazis in the middle east. Obamas brother is head of finance for the muslim brotherhood. His name is Malik. Isis is going around cutting average peoples heads off. This is the same guy who shelters these kinds of people that is dictating policy on how we should live? Im all for a person getting equal pay for what they do. Women are alot of the times more intelegent than men. In a sit down enviroment this doesnt bother me in the least. As far as physical work is concerned it does. The president should be watching our enemy at our gates,nit changing the names of mountains / flags / high school foot ball concussions / 4th of july barbeques. He should be making us safe not taking our guns. Obama is the enemy or havent you noticed he cant say Muslim Terrorist in the same sentence.Sigpus Pacum Parabellum.

  44. The pay gap is quite real. While the gap is not as large as it was 50 years ago, it remains significant. To deny is to lie.

  45. Thank you, President Obama… ANOTHER step in the right direction!

  46. I can see how this will be used to destroy businesses. Two people with equal education and experience. One puts in 60 hours a week (man). The other does their 40(woman). The 60 hour a week person makes more so the business is fined. This will be used to “level the playing field” by ignoring some of facts. Government run amok.

  47. More communist intrusion! Why don’t some one ask the Dictator in Our White House where he got his (in excess of) 20 million from? Racist professors make this much ?

  48. The negro is not even a legal sitting US President! How many times have I got to SAY THIS???

    He has NO CONSTITUTIONAL AUTHORITY WHATSOEVER!!!

    If you obey him you are agreeing to a usurpation of your Constitution meaning you are committing TREASON and aiding and abetting the enemy!!!

  49. I want to know why we the people are wasting our tax dollars on a congress as we have a king Dictator and his Kangroo Suprem court (majority) ? Congress is useless as their the only ones per the constitution that can make LAW .

  50. It’s all “job justification” to him.The guy has never produced an hour of earned income in his life. I suppose all a person need do is be unemployed, lazy, and tell lies by nature. Those Democrat requirements can land him Soros’ financing, a very concealed past history, and an unlimited ticket to practice golf (with scores kept secret) and an unlimited ticket to ride AF#1.

  51. Every corporation in the US should ignore this power grab by the outgoing tyrant, and let the chips fall where they may. The Trump administration will rescind every executive order signed for the past 4 to 7 years, anyway. Semper Fi.

    • i don’t know what you think…but why would anyone vote to start WW III !?!?? unfortunately for the country too many people are thinking to do that today ….of course agree with me there are far more common sense candidates in this race than not…the country will go where people vote and nobody can stop that…but the problem Trump has…he’s so far radical right that he makes a sort of extremist like Cruz look like a moderate…

  52. No OBAMA ISN’T TAMPERING WITH A LAW THAT IS ALREADY FIXED. HE IS “LEVELING THE PLAYING FIELD” LIKE ALL GOOD LITTLE BLACK SOCIALISTS WOULD DO. Being a Supreme Socialist trying to turn our country into a socialism disaster, barry wants to make all wages equal…period. Again, he is walking around with his head up his butt.

    Socialism DOES NOT WORK! Anyone with a 5th grade education can tell you that Socialism kills countries and destroys Societies. But barry doesn’t care, because it is all about what “he” wants. So if he makes sure that all people are being paid the same amount, he has made everyone happy…right? Wrong! By paying everyone the same amount barry is destroying the exceptionalism and wonderful individuality of people! Yes, you will always have some people who ARE SMARTER THAN OTHERS…That’s life! Get over it!!

    America didn’t become Exceptional and Strong by smothering the innovative and the highly intelligent. America proudly supported those individuals and they helped create a better life for all of us. That’s what people like that are supposed to do — create a better, more prosperous world for all of us because they are gifted in certain areas. Obama wants to destroy that ability so his lame little followers won’t feel badly because they just aren’t that smart. OMG! Would someone kick bho in the butt and knock some sense into that head of his? Pleease!

  53. Look, Homeland Security has gone out of its’ way to get entitlements for illegals by labeling them refugees, using social security, state and local welfare. If you lucky enough to get a part time job, you get minimum wage, in many states no legal right to breaks or enough lunch for folks working under 35 hours a week. Illegal take the job and the rest is made up in entitlements the poor rat’s ass American pay’s in taxes, why. The never laid their fair share and never will, Congress are either rich or tools of the rich. That leaves only the middle class to take from to support the democratic base in voting. The republicans voted to finance illegal aliens till 2018, why their corporative contributors need cheap labor the rest of us pay for. It is not the fault of illegals it is an administration that is the most corrupt and dishonest in our entire history.

    • i don’t agree with the way Obama has been doing some things….but according to what i read the most corrupt administration in America record is still held by President Grant …

      • Presidents Grant and Harding did not use the DOJ to cover their tracks and avoid exposure. Neither spent or double the deficit, neither made executive orders that shocked the very fiber of the nation, neither were so powerful that they could ignore the American people. Grant a war thus he to was re-elected, and Harding involved in a love scandal died early in office. Supporters of this secret regime refuse to see its’ faults or criminal activities, they keep searching in history for what they consider worst as an excuse. The only way to stop or limit lawlessness would be to hand over the power of the DOJ to a special congressional investigation group and clean up the mess by exposing it. Do not worry, these guys will continue to destroy this nation and walk away laughing. In our ignorance we will build a shrine to them.

        • i didn’t know about Harding …i know i had book of presidential micro-biographies that ran Washington to Clinton …unfortunately i don’t know what happened to it 🙁

  54. EOE and AA aren’t enough to fill workplaces with unskilled and dangerous labor? Now they want control over your wage regardless of education, experience and skill. All that matters is the color of your skin and what is between your legs. How racist and sexist the Obama administration is.

  55. executive orders are only to be used to ensure the law is enforced not to make one .If congress continues to lets the pretender in chief do as he pleases “we the people’ must replace congress or kiss what little freedom we have good bye.

  56. It’s the first thing he’s actually done that I agree with. I just don’t agree with the way he did it!

  57. Congratulations, President Obama for doing the right thing! (You censors need to accept viewpoints other than your own!)

  58. The evil excuse is obvious. The whole ball of wax is obama and his Agenda 21 want equal pay for illegals and his muslim brothers. It has NOTHING to do with women. This is a muslim crocodile, he is a lizard of epic proportions and his most important mantra in life is to destroy our USA. He hates us and everything he is doing to us it FOR his muslim people. He is working for the UN agenda 21, and because of the damage he has done to flood our country with illegal immigrants and colonize our Christian nation with the muslims who vow to kill all infidel Christians to destroy our sovereignty, our culture, and our economy, the UN will give him one of the highest offices in the world to be the dictator over the world. And that will include any puppet president that lives at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Washington, DC. But, even the UN has been fooled with this muslim crocodile, he is colonizing the elite world, as well, for Sharia law and to rule the muslim world.

    As obama says, our Constitution is flawed, out of date and obsolete, and, get this, our Constitution is unconstitutional? He says this because he wants us to hate our country just like he does. The oxy moron if I ever heard it. He is satan, because he IS causing our youth and the his liberal lovers to hate our country. He’s committed every shameful and disgusting form of treason, and there is much more he will do before and after he leaves office.

    When he gets his new job either at the highest office in the UN, or on our own supreme court to finish us off, we will be under satan’s rule because we have allowed this administration to finish taking God out of our country, he has turned us into another Sodom and Gommorah (and we all know why, how, and what happened to those two cities plus three others at the same time) and a plethora of other atrocities, and since we abandoned God, satan has taken us over.

    Where there is an absence of light, the darkness takes over. Where there is an absence of good, the evil takes over. Where there is an absence of God, satan takes over. Not many of us see this, but it will hit us like a ton of bricks and obama knows this, he planned it, he was put in office for this. He is a communist muslim mole and he’s taking us down and we gave him the keys to our nation and put him into the highest office over every man, woman and baby, and made him the most powerful man in the world.

    We are epic idiots for letting this lizard do this to us.

  59. “Reports must be broken down into demographic categories like race, gender, and ethnicity”
    Why isn’t that called profiling? Racism? Bigotry?
    Another double standard if there ever was one.
    GUILTY Mr B HObamination.

  60. NO John, but I take a lot of kidding about it because I played country music professionally for about 15 years. Again congrats on your post.

  61. ALERT! The following commentary, as well as that appearing above, is dominated by irrational wingnut ultraconservative know-nothings who just make up stuff to suit their biases–especially when discussing the President of the United States and Commander in Chief of her Armed Forces, the Honorable Barack Hussein Obama! You are advised to find something more worthwhile to do than reading the irremediable trash these miscreants post. Try watching paint dry.

  62. What do I think? I think Obama is like a sore.. he should be treated and gotten rid of.

  63. Hourly employees will have various factors affecting their gross pay. If they ask for hourly rate of pay by job classification that also is not enough information. They will have to know sex, pay rate, hours worked, reasons for hours missed and likely more. For salaried positions they will need to know sex, salary, job family and level within the family, full time v part time, bonuses, financial awards, and maybe more. I suspect if they compile the data correctly they will have egg on their faces.

  64. This tomfoolery will hit the Prez Lite, I hope, in the backside as he exits the White House. What an unreasonable burden upon the private sector. Well-written article that nails the issue. It is the Prez Lite again attempting to fix what is not broken, and ignorantly (if I am being charitable) creating grave damage in the process.

  65. First off ,the filthy liberals and the liberal goverment are the only ones who pay women less. Look at hitlary and see what she pays the people that work for her campain. The men are paid substandard and the females are paid even less , forget it if your a minority that pay scale is down right miniscule!!!!!! JUST THE FACTS!!!!!!!!.

  66. More gubmint business control – lovely here in the USSA.

  67. THE A-HOLE IN THE OVAL OFFICE IS DETERMINED TO BE A DEGENERATE SOCIAL MARXIST FASCHIST. BANKRUPTING THE COUNTRY, THE SATANIST AHOLE HAS BEEN SUCCESSFUL IN DIVIDING THE COUNTRY , THROUGH LIES AN UNCONSTITUTIONAL EXEC ORDERS & ( MEDIA.GOV) TO BRING ABOUT ONE WORLD GOV.

  68. The only reason Barry does it is because between the two of them they can’t figure out which is which in the Rainbowhouse. They look and both have hangie down parts so They figure they must be equal.
    I know a real good place for it’s pen and phone but Barry might enjoy them too much.

  69. OBOZO DOES NOT UNDERSTAND THAT EXECUTIVE MEN ( PROFESIONAL) WORK MORE THAN 40 HRS PER WEEK, EXECUTIVE WOMEN WORK ABOUT 40 HRS AND GO HOME AND TAKE CARE OF CHILDREN WHICH IS WHAT THEY SHOULD DO. MOST EXECUTIVE MEN WORK 50 HRS WEEK TO DO THERE JOB AND PERFORM TO THE HIGH DEGREE EXPECTED OF THEM. AND FOR THAT REASON BASED ON RATE PER HR EARN LESS PER HR.

  70. There is Absolutely NOTHING that the DC DICTATOR will not Use his Executive Decree inorder to Bypass Congress…But then Congress is TOTALLY USELESS….When it comes to Stopping this Muzzie Dictator…The only good thing about this…When Donald Trump Becomes President in January 2017….He can QUICKLY WIPE OUT ALL OF THESE EXECUTIVE DECREES….

    • Good point! We should do everything we can to ensure that women continue to be paid less than men for the same work, because… Freedom! Or something.

  71. Tom Buyea -- Fla.News service

    Obama Must be Impeached and Charged with Treason and War Crimes against America and Americans Immediately, It is NOT Too Late we need to at least show the history books (If we are allowed to have honest history books in the future ?? I would like to see what passes for accurate History books now in public schools now ? With all the Politically Correct crap, What do they say about many things if they mention them at all ? Also what do they teach in Law School about the U.S. Constitution ? Is it still in force or is it something that belongs in the History books ??) what happens when we let a Non American Communist Black Muslim Terrorist get in the White House !!!

    • I’d be interested in seeing your copy of the Constitution. It seems to look nothing like mine.

      • Tom Buyea -- Fla.News service

        Well the Constitution says in some way that the President is Required to see to it that all the Federal laws are enforced and he is doing exactly the opposite when it comes to allowing unlimited illegal aliens to come into the USA and stay here even though they are not in hiding ! And then giving them things like section-8 housing and welfare when tens of thousands of Americans are living in tent cities all over the United States !

  72. So this is how a community dis-organizer units. By dividing us into more groups??

  73. Another executive order=paying more government employees=more taxes on the public=more GOVERNMENT CONTROL! WAKE UP AMERICA!

    • The President has nothing to do with taxes, beyond any recommendations he or she might send to Congress. The Senate and the House are entirely responsible. Please read your copy of the Constitution (you DO have one, right? If not, you can easily find it online…) and learn a little more about how your government works.

  74. He truly is making Congress irrelevant. They used to be the branch of government that made law. Now, with abuse of power, it is king Barry.

  75. Yup! and hire a bunch of libs to monitor, track and oversee the progress or lack of progress. Add another zillion to our ridiculous debt. Just what we need — NOT!

    • Hi, Frosty. You might want to brush up on your Constitution a bit. The President doesn’t have the power to set appropriations; that rests with Congress, specifically the House, in terms of origination. So the President can’t add or subtract from the “ridiculous debt.” If you have a complaint about the debt, please contact your congressional representative. One more time: The President can’t spend a dime that hasn’t been authorized by Congress.

      • So the POTUS blames it on Bush and you blame it on congress. What a deal !! You missed the point altogether.

        • Ah. You’re changing the subject. Have fun with that! But you really should read your Constitution, at least once. It’s a short document; it really won’t take all that long. “Add another zillion to our ridiculous debt.” is what you said, even though the President can’t add a penny to the debt. Get back to me when you’ve read Article I, Section 7, Clause 1. (And you should follow that up with Article I, Section 9, Clause 7…) Until then, have a nice day.

  76. Call me a cynic but I believe this executive action has more to do with collecting income information on everyone than it does with discrimination, which as pointed out by several contributors is pretty much a non-issue. The IRS and this The Baloney Administration (Thanks, John) have been trying for a while to come up with a way to collect income information on everyone. This information will be easier to use as it is not modified or hidden in the tax structure. Looks like they may have succeeded. With this administration, and Democrats in general, it is always about control. This action surely fits that model.

  77. Dr. Robert Schwartz

    After seven years of our expressing repulsion at the administration’s using executive authority in direct contradiction to the voice of the people, represented in Congress, the president continues to use the seldom- necessary action seen here today. Using incomplete stats to justify attacks on corporations and companies is intellectually effete. Using incomplete stats to provide justification for anything is just plain unintelligent. Using incomplete stats to misinterpret corporate behavior is a further attempt to split the nation, to excite differences in learning and to miss the mark in recognizing the values of people rather than to hark on their purely natural differences. Finally, it is another clear example of executive overreach, totally repugnant in our democracy.

  78. That is racism directly from the horses mouth.

  79. Does this mean that he going to pay his female staff workers equal pay,you know that now they get 72 cents on a dollar compare to men that get 95 cents on a dollar.

  80. go over and clean up pelosi, boxer, feinstein , and the white house pay scales.
    You get paid for your production not your genitalia , race, or origin

  81. This smells of an Unconstitutional action.

  82. Dennis B Anderson

    This crazy black man thinks he is Robin Hood. I understand why he leads from behind in his pink tou – tou. The toughest thing he did was change the name of a mountain, and try to put a stop to the 4th of July barbeques.
    Hey John your 5 minutes of fame are over get a new verse. Oscar Meyer is turning over in his grave.

  83. More power play by the idiot-in-chief. It’s none of the gov’t’s business what employers pay their people. But big gov’t just can’t stay out of everybody’s business. Shades of “1984.”

  84. Leonidas X. Ioannou

    confused.
    if a male gets paid more based on their expertise and a females less because of lack or different position in the company means we have to equally pay no matter what??

  85. If I were a business owner, I would bill the government for this added burden.

  86. The World Economy is in chaotic decline …Obama piddles and expects applause for violation of our rights and destruction of business…

  87. So ! How much longer is this fool Obama going to be in the White House ? I am beginning to dislike this SOB !

  88. “Putting on the shits”-What rock did you crawl out from under? Who in the hell do you think funds the GOVERNMENT? THE WORKING PUBLIC that’s who! The president signs an EO that companies need to report wages. Who is going to look at all of this crap? Do you think it will be volunteers? Now another new position will be created for the person who will be in charge this new “department”. People will be needed for “collecting” this info, then MANY more people to go through the information, then more people to notify the employers if they are meeting EO or not and then more people to collect fines or round up the employers who do not comply! Sounds like money to me! Sounds like control to me! Maybe the “president” has nothing to do with raising taxes directly,( and I did not say that) but his actions sure cause need for more spending and guess what? I’ll let you in on a little secret “THE PUBLIC PAYS FOR THE GOVERNMENT SPENDING!! Get over yourself, you live in lala land!

  89. Master Blaster Pursel

    What is Socialism?

    Socialism is an economic system
    where the means of production, such as money and other forms of
    capital, are owned by the state or public. Under a socialist system,
    everyone works for wealth that is, in turn, distributed to everyone.
    Under capitalism, you work for your own wealth. A socialist economic
    system operates on the premise that what is good for one is good for
    all. Everyone works for their own good and the good of everyone else.
    The government decides how wealth is distributed among the people.

    In
    a socialist economy, there is no market as such. The government
    provides for the people. The taxes are usually higher than in a
    capitalist system. There may be government-run health care and a
    complete system of government-operated education. It is a misconception
    that people do not pay for these services. They do pay for them through
    higher taxes. Socialist systems emphasize equal distribution of wealth
    among the people.

  90. This nightmare won’t end until Obama is removed from office. And I don’t mean wait for elections. We have the option in the Bill of Rights. Somehow a lot of people just don’t even know or care about it.
    Read it for yourself. It states in there that we not only have the right but it us our DUTY to remove a despot from office. That is the only way to take away the pen and phone.
    That goes for the ones coming behind him also, if they do the same as he does. Everything he does is designed to degrade this country, to bring us to our knees. But God wants it to be good. What Obama (and not even enough of the citizens) realize is if we would be brought to our knees that is when and where God will meet us and will step in and with one word, or whatever method He chooses, this could around on a dime. Let’s everyone realize this and get on our knees ourselves. Let’s not wait for Obama to forced us there. II Chronicles 7:14, especially the KJV. Read it and follow it. God is faithful and will keep His word.

  91. Somebody Chop the HNIC’s Fingers off, and see if he can hold a PEN and Phone with his “Winkie”!!

  92. When will this nightmare end? When EVERY worthless G0d D@mn Democrat in America is dead.
