I got that little snippet from this larger quote on his website:
“Bullock will continue to fight for equal pay for women and equal opportunity for everyone.”
Continue to fight, huh?
Fight for what?
Women in America earn 70.6% of what a man does. In Montana, they earn 67.5% of what a man does.
So here in the Treasure State, a woman working the same job as a man, and for the same number of hours a week, will make $20,575 to his $30,472.
That’s pretty bad. Worse, we know that 93.1% of Montana women have a high school degree compared to 91.9% of men.
When it comes to bachelor’s degrees, 29.3% of women have one while just 28.5% of men do.
You’d think we’d be paying women more, huh?
Well, they have tits and a vagina so we can’t do that.
Honestly, why are they out of the kitchen…shouldn’t they be in the kitchen?
I guess that’s the mentality we have in this state and this country.
We sure as shit know that Steve Daines doesn’t care about this issue, for he’s perfectly fine allowing his daughters to make less money than his son.
We profiled Steve Daines and how much he hates women two years ago, however – no need to get back into that until late-2018.
But Bullock will help our state’s women, oh yes, oh boy!
Remember, Bullock will “continue to fight.”
That’s great. How long have we continued that fight? How many Montana women are fighting for this as well?
So…why does nothing ever happen?
Why are women, despite having more education, still making less than men?
Because Steve Bullock can’t win.
Oh, he can fight, but he can’t win.
To win, he’d need to have legislation reach his desk that says women will get paid more.
What the hell that legislation looks like, or how it’d be enforced, I have no idea.
But to get that legislation, he’d first need friendly legislators to introduce it, carry it through the committee process, get it out of the House and Senate on votes, and then to his desk where he can sign it.
How is that going to happen?
Montana Democrats have not had even a single chamber of the legislature since 1991 and they haven’t had both since 1985.
How is Bullock going to get this legislation through and to his desk to sign?
And that’s why Bullock will continue the fight – because putting up a sham show is a lot better than admitting you can’t win.
In that regard, Bullock is a loser. Montana Democrats are losers.
But then we knew that every two years for the past 25 years when we look at the makeup of our legislature.
We could talk about this, but remember, lots of entitled and establishment Democrats in Montana are profiting off of this makeup.
Don’t ever forget that being in the minority benefits someone, usually the people at the top of that minority.
It gets cushy there, being at the top. Sure, it might be second best, but at least people listen to you.
You’re leadership, and despite never getting any true change in the state – like increased women’s pay – we’ll keep leading our minority.
We can’t take a majority, we know that, and we’ve given up trying.
People are tired. It’s been a long life, with lots of work…isn’t it time to just give up all that and sit back and enjoy all we’ve worked for?
That’s what Democratic leadership in Montana is today – old people sitting back and smiling on their “accomplishments.”
No, we don’t need new and young and fresh voices, thank you very much, because for us, everything is working just fine.
And that’s Montana today, a state that keeps fighting but doesn’t have a hope in hell of ever winning.
