Ron Crumpton on Civil Rights
A: Strongly agree. Women make $0.78 vs. men; minorities make $0.75 vs. whites
A: Strongly agree. I would offer an amendment to the Civil Rights Act that would add sexual orientation and gender identity to the list of protected classes.
From the reconstruction era until the 1960's, the States passed many laws aimed at denying access to goods and services to members of the black community, but in 1964 Congress and the US Supreme Court put an end to those laws. The Civil Rights Act of 1964 outlawed discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, or national origin. I would offer an amendment to the Civil Rights Act that would simply add sexual orientation & gender identity to the list of protected classes.
The 14th Amendment guarantees the equal protection for all American citizens, and the Civil Rights Act of 1964 specifically forbids discrimination based on sex or race in the work place, yet women only make 78 cents on the dollar compared to men and minorities only make 75 cents on the dollar as compared to white males.
This discrimination comes at a cost of $550 billion a year in lost wages for women, and when you factor in minorities, you are looking at a loss of $1 trillion. I believe that a realistic goal would be to get the pay of women and minorities up to 90 cents on the dollar. This would mean an injection of over $600 billion in new wages each year, and more than $150 billion in new tax revenues.
