Comparing Platforms: Equal Pay for Equal Work

President Obama’s Democratic Platform Calls For Equal Pay For Women;

Mitt Romney’s Republican Platform Is Silent!

Platform Issue #14: Equal Pay for Equal Work

Democrat: We are committed to ensuring full equality for women: we reaffirm our support for the Equal Rights Amendment, recommit to enforcing Title IX, support the Paycheck Fairness Act, and will urge ratification of the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women. We know that putting America back to work is Job One, and we are committed to ensuring that Americans do not face employment discrimination. We support the Employment Non-Discrimination Act because people should not be fired based on their sexual orientation or gender identity.

Republican: We will always support and cherish our men and women in uniform who defend our liberties with their lives.

Military men and women must not be disenfranchised from the very freedom they defend. We affirm that our troops, wherever stationed, be allowed to vote and those votes be counted in the November election and in all elections.

(The Republican Platform 2012 has NO mention of equal Pay For Equal Work)
