    Iceland has become the first country in the world to make it a law.

    I didn’t see a temple in the city because the Lord God All-Mighty and the Lamb are its Temple. The city didn’t have need for the sun or the moon to shine on it, for the Glory of God gave it light; the Lamb is the Light.

    They'll just pay the men the same thing they pay women now, which will be less for the men. LOL!

    Oh, my brethren! bold-hearted men are always called mean-spirited by cowards. - Charles Spurgeon

    Open Theism and Molinism, two inept theological camps, do err in this sense; God doesn't have an R&D department, He does all things perfectly.

    A god who can be fashioned by our own thoughts is no more a god than an image produced by our own hands. - Charles Spurgeon

    I'm 100% certain there are pay discrepancies all across the board whether between male/female, minority/majority, young/old, gay/straight, etc. I worked in the corporate world for too many years to be blind to that fact. Nevertheless, I had no complaints because I was paid what I requested to be paid for my work. I only posted the above link because I thought it was interesting news, not to start a male vs female debate.

    I believe the principle concept is equal pay for equal work...

    I think it is a dangerous precedent to set.

    if pay is based on merit
    experience
    education
    and availability

    that would be the most beneficial to the workers and employers

    Yeah I never understood that. That may be fine in an office but not in all lines of work. My husband has been in courier work for the last several years. He's had to deliver trampolines,lazy boys,tractor tires etc. A woman that also works at the same job goes out and gets her husband to meet her and deliver her packages because,of course,she's unable to do it herself. I dont see how that is fair. She can't do the work so why should she be paid the same as a man? Doesn't make sense to me.

    You have described a scenario where it is not equal work, though. I think the glass ceiling is quite evident in managerial type positions, or office work, where heavy lifting is not required: brains, not brawn.

    If women are paid less, then why don't employers just hire women?
