    I guess Mayhem thinks people shouldn't know if their boss is screwing them on their wages. And Obama is a king because, in this case at least, he's siding with the First Amendment rather than corporations.

    Still has a ways to go to catch up to Bush Jr. when it comes to executive orders, if that's what you have a problem with. Hell, he only has a couple more than Bush Sr did in his one term. Certainly I can go back and find the King Bush thread you started years ago, once I get on my computer, right?

    I really don't see anything wrong with this order and the only problem I can see anybody else having with it is because of the person signing it.

    Although I fully believe that race, sex, religion, etc. should have nothing to do with someone's rate of pay, I do fear that mandating equal pay will squelch raises based upon merit if someone is not of the proper demographic. People should get paid what they earn regardless of what demographic they represent. To mandate otherwise seriously risks deterring ambition and work ethic.

    So corporations efforts to keep salaries at a minimum trump free speech?

    Obama is a douche bag and the worst president in history, but this executive action is miniscule and it really doesn't affect the workplace in general. Folks were discussing their pay if they wanted to anyways.
    I doubt anyone has ever been fired for talking about their wages. I could give a crap about all those federal workers. there are too many of them already.
    I have greater concerns about his search and seizure within 100 miles of the US border...Hijacking 1/5 of the economy...acting like a weak imbecile during foreign policy crisis...and blatant lying to the American people...not acting presidential..those types of issues.
