    CNSNews.com - White House Backs Bill to Collect Employee Pay Information from Businesses

    It seems something is missing from the data that they want. Anyone?

    Perhaps the article is wrong; but I don't think so. Missing from the data is: JOB DESCRIPTION. It seems that gender and racial equity is to be achieved by looking at anatomy and melatonin; not by skills, education, and performance.

    Could this be another step toward "wealth redistribution"? "From each according to his ability, to each according to his need..."

    And all the New Jobs (!!!!!) that will be created in yet another government agency and possibly a new czar to oversee the operation.

    DOL already gets all kinds of reports from businesses pertaining to employer statistics on employees.

    Yes. Where does it say "job description"? How can someone conduct a survey on wages without knowing what the frickin job is? Does that make sense to you?

    Seems that would fall under "identify additional data collections that will enhance the enforcement of such laws." It doesn't say they're limited to demographic information but they would be required to collect at least the demographic information.
