Comparable Unworth

As this article shows, the doctrine of comparable worth is alive and well in Canada.

Comparing the pay of a flight attendant to that of a pilot and alleging sex discrimination may win points for creativity but little else.

Fortunately, the United States sticks with the equal pay for equal work standard.

In other words, if you want the same pay as a pilot, become a pilot.

BTW: Have you ever noticed how comparable worth advocates always want a group's pay raised and never advocate having the "favored" group's pay lowered?
