Wisconsin Women Workers Have Pay Rights Gutted by Governor Walker

The Governor didn't bother hold a signing ceremony to sign the bill repealing Wisconsin's equal pay protections.

Wisconsin Senator Glenn Grothman, a key neanderthal sponsor of the repeal bill supported it thusly:
“You could argue that money is more important for men,” he said. “I think a guy in their first job, maybe because they expect to be a breadwinner someday, may be a little more money-conscious. To attribute everything to a so-called bias in the workplace is just not true.”
I suspect each of the women you will find pictured at this incredible Russian website would have no trouble kicking Glenn Grothman's butt all around the room to personally address so-called bias.
