Way better then Bob getting 10 $/hr and Julie 8 $/hr! Be poor and then tell me going to $15 minimum is not worth it just because some man would illegally (and has been illegal for decades) earn more simply for having a penis. You want the fix the wage gap, why not fix the wage gape of the rich and poor, of a corporate owner taking off dozens even hundreds of times the companies profits as his wage, compared to his lowest employee: is not 50,000% bigger then 77%, is that not the problem we need to address FIRST? No and no, prejudice and identity injustice is a SMALLER problem then economic injustice, we need to deal with the big problem first, at least to a degree to finance dealing with any of the smaller problems next. Its like a person comes into the hospital with finger cut off and your demanding that be dealt with first, despite the obvious gapping whole clean through the person heart! "Doctor how dare you, you are prejudice against fingers!, even if you do repair the hole in the heart, this person would live without a finger, the finger must come first!" With everyone having better wages, stable jobs, savings, education, they will be way better of then they are today, despite the supremacists still being around. In fact when we look at European countries that better social safety nets the rate of ignorant supremacists in their population is actually lower, so just a better social safety net and better funded education does reduce racism, sexism and bigotry. So your being pointless right now?
