I don't really have to point out that Chuck Schumer is full of it, but this is such an idiotic claim that has been proven wrong 20 times over. SIMPLE LOGIC: If what he said about the "pay gap" was true, i.e. if women REALLY earned less than men for the exact same performance, the same cost to the employer, the same dedication to the job, the same expectation of future productivity etc., then ALL businesses would try to ONLY hire women - why pay more for the same or better performance? Business owners are in it to make money, not to give too much money to men. This is even one of the major ideological claims of the political left, i.e. that businesses ONLY care about profits. As the "gender pay gap" is also strictly a left-wing talking point, they contradict themselves. Why do businesses agree to over-pay men when they could just hire more women instead? This would put upward pressure on the salaries of women and downward pressure on the salaries of men. But apparently, businesses prefer to lose money... Therefore, anyone who argues that there's a "pay gap" must assume that: business owners are stupid. It gets even weirder considering that most HR departments are run by women 馃 So women hire employees and fix their salaries, but they discriminate against women. Because "patriarchy" 馃ぁ https://www.minds.com/newsfeed/1248800856803164160?referrer=SMetzeler

This is a great documentary about how women are not the wonderful, kind, caring, peaceful angels as which they are often represented. There were some real female monsters, throughout history. Let's just admit that any intelligent being is capable of being evil. By pretending that women are inherently good, they also imply that women have no ability to think for themselves, which is clearly a lie. The existence of Hillary, Pelosi, AOC, Ilhan Omar, Rachida Tlaib, Gretchen Whitmer, Angela Merkel and so many others should totally destroy any assumption about the inherent goodness of women. In fact, a historical study found that there were more wars when Queens were heading major European powers than when all the powers were ruled by kings. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=csRSJXTr-90
