Thank you Hannah Beth Jackson for always being a leader when it comes to government being fair to all people: men, women, kids, gay straight, bi, trans, immigrants, elderly, people of color, rich, poor, Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Humanist. All of us know who is fighting for our rights. Thank you Senator Jackson!!!

Oh gosh. I am a voracious reader, but I just couldn't read all of these comments.

How is our government supposed to regulate this when it can't even manage immigration?

Sorry. My prior comment was in response to 556P. Not 308.

308: You have grossly overstated any supposed gender inequality in employment at UCSB. The highest administrative IT position on campus was held by a woman until her recent retirement. UCSB has had a female chancellor, a female executive vice chancellor and administrative vice chancellor. Many other high level and middle management positions have been held by women.

@572: Your teachers were right. Wind triggers positive ions, which tend to charge people (and animals) up and sometimes make them act a little crazy. I’m all for that.

Thanks for the information. I have received numerous calls from that number, and now I know where to make a complaint. I am passing this on to others.

Me, too!!! I thought I was the only person in this town who loves the wind. I do recall hearing from a couple of kindergarten teachers who said that the wind makes the little ones crazy/crazier than usual. That's probably why I love it :-)

308 speaks truth. Government related industries are usually among the worst offenders, and they love to exempt themselves. As a now 60 year old, who worked in IT for decades at UCSB, their sexism was obvious to anyone who paid attention. Women IT workers were regularly assigned more administrative tasks, to justify why they were classified lower than male colleagues. The bigger and more bureaucratic the industry, the more likely it is that institutional sexism is entrenched. That said, legislation is seldom the answer to ongoing cultural issues. Saying, "it's illegal to be biased" just makes bigots more creative and subtle in their bigotry, so they pass legal muster.

Women have to struggle in most U.S. industries for promotion to management, to receive equal pay for the exact same job, and because of the lack of child care available near most employers' facilities, have to make adjustment in work hours or reduce hours to provide for family care. These problems are well documented, as are solutions to the problems provided by social systems of most first world democracies. Kudos to Mrs. Jackson for pushing us into the first world realities of equal pay for equal work.

I have a couple of outstanding women I work with who are making more than their male colleagues.....does this mean they have to take a pay cut?

I can't find the link, but this was covered on the PBS News Hour last year.

Among the interesting things revealed was the giant "gap" was due to a) there are more women than men and b) more women worked at part time jobs and lower paying jobs than men.

When it is all added up to calculate for the "average" wage, of course the women showed a huge gap. As Mark Twain offered, "Get your facts first, and then you can distort them as much as you please."

According to GAO (or whatever government agency did the study), most women working the same job as a male makes close to or equal to the same pay.

These comments from mostly men make me physically ill and remind me that we have such a long way to go. Not only is there inequality in women's pay but we also have a large group of men wanting to control what a women does with her body instead of letting women work with their doctor's on these issues. I am also one of those women who change the oil in my car, paint my house, do my home repairs, and get by just fine.
