Davenport the Misogynist
From Donald W. Patterson at the N&R:
In North Carolina in 2010, women on average made only 81 cents for every dollar paid to men. That amounts to a yearly wage gap of nearly $8,000.
But when it comes to pay disparity, the Tar Heel state isn’t an exception. Forty one other states have a bigger pay gap.
From Charles Davenport, Jr. at The Greensboro Guardian:
Everywhere I’ve worked, when school is postponed or cancelled because of bad weather, several women (with children) do not show up at the office. At least 2-3 days a week, several other women (with children) do not report to work because their child is sick, and can’t go to school. I am not criticizing the moms for taking care of their kids, but surely, an employer should take attendance into account when establishing wages: If Bob reports to work 98 percent of the time, but Suzy reports to work 85 percent of the time, then, at least as far as attendance is concerned, Bob deserves to make more money than Suzy.
Wow, I bet he’s popular around the office. He conveniently forgot to mention the single male parents who had to make similar provisions for their kids. I can’t imagine there’s a woman so daft and desperate as to have married Davenport, but I feel sorry for her and any kids she may have had with him. His is the sort of blatant paternalism which we’ve strived these last several generations to overcome. Leave it to the beaver to blame the victim: a popular tactic among the social retards.
Railing against equal pay for women is not a windmill I should have thought Davenport would tilt at. I am always surprised at the social inequities to which he and his kind take offense. That there are any women at all among the social retards is a testament to the mindless obedience inculcated in the downtrodden. Worst of all, Davenport posted this outrageous piece of shit just after Mother’s Day. My guess is that poor woman has since had second thoughts.
