On Equal Pay for Equal Work: Bullock Awarded for His Efforts, Gianforte Still Opposes It
The contrast could not be more clear:
Steve Bullock received the Gender Equality Award from the American Association of University Women's Missoula branch for his efforts to ensure women receive equal pay for equal work and this evening he is opening up the Equal Pay Summit in Bozeman.
As Steve continues to lead on this issue, New Jersey multimillionaire Greg Gianforte still opposes the Paycheck Fairness Act.
When Gianforte was asked about the Paycheck Fairness Act, his spokesperson give this bizarre response:
Aaron Flint, a spokesman for GOP gubernatorial hopeful Greg Gianforte, said the Bozeman high-tech entrepreneur thinks that oftentimes women should get more pay.
“For example, his daughter goes to Stanford and got a perfect ACT score. Greg thinks she should get paid more. As he’s stated on the road from Ekalaka to Eureka: We need equal opportunity, not equal outcomes.” [Great Falls Tribune, 04/12/2016]
"Greg Gianforte doesn't get it and his refusal to support the Paycheck Fairness Act hurts Montana's women and our growing economy," said Jason Pitt, a spokesperson for the Montana Democratic Party. "Every day Gianforte refuses to support equal pay for equal work, Montanans get a clearer picture of his out-of-touch agenda that benefits millionaires like himself at the expense of middle class families."
