The Wasington Post: Utah Republican argues against equal pay for women: It’s ‘bad for families’ and society – The Washington Post

Make America misogynistic again!

“Green said in his letter, published Wednesday by the Park Record andthe Wasatch Wave, that men make more than women because they’re “the primary breadwinners” of their families, and paying women equally would somehow ruin the makeup of a traditional family where “the Mother” remains at home raising children.

“If businesses are forced to pay women the same as male earnings, that means they will have to reduce the pay for the men they employ, simple economics,” Green wrote. “If that happens, then men will have an even more difficult time earning enough to support their families, which will mean more Mothers will be forced to leave the home (where they may prefer to be) to join the workforce to make up the difference.””
