“So...this isn't a "secret menu". This is what happens when slobs combine disgusting foods into horrifying creations.”

“Those 'slobs' happen to be people, and if you don't like it, don't eat there.”

Riiings on May 20, 2014 at 10:01:03

“Yet when something gets posted about In-N-Out's secret menu, there are dozens of posts from people waxing poetic about how awesome In-N-Out is and how it isn't fair that there isn't one in their part of the country.

It's all the same gross, toxic garbage, if you ask me.”

“Well you are a liar because you are misrepresenting reality, purposely. Exactly NONE of those articles addresses the fact that the 77 cents statistic (while true without regard for job title, education, experience, hours worked, among other factors) is misleading and does not paint an accurate picture of equal pay for equal work. Why on earth would you use that statistic if you wanted an actual portrait of equal pay for equal work? The answer is that you wouldn't. Even the President walked back from that talking point after being called to task about the WH pay discrepancies.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/post-politics/wp/2014/04/07/the-white-houses-own-wage-gender-gap/

" "And when it comes to the bottom line that women who do the same work as men have to be paid the same, there is no question that that is happening here at the White House at every level."

That is a quote from Jay Carney after being asked about the WH's 88% wage gap. In that he explains that those doing the same work receive the same pay but essentially there are more women at lower positions which explains the overall AVERAGE pay gap. The same is true of the 77 cents on the dollar talking point from the census data. You do understand the difference between average pay with no regard for the specific job, experience, or education is not even remotely in the ball park of an equal pay for equal work conversation, right? Stop lying.”

“Yes, it has. You need to pay more attention. The talking point you are referencing is from census data that did not take job title/duties, education, and experience into account when calculating that figure. This was further emboldened by President Obama when a similar statistical pay discrepancy was found within the White House staff. The president clarified that, just like the census data, the figures regarding the White House staff did not account for job title/duties, education, or experience. This is all widely available information. Now, stop spreading your lies to people that don't know any better. Thanks.”

“Yes, it sure was.

“If you're going to create a headline that falsely spins and furthers a certain narrative (south = r/acsist) it only works if people don't read the article. The findings in the UCLA study flies in the face of this i/diotic and irresponsible headline. But it appears to have worked because there are many commentors below that clearly stopped at the headline.”

“Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight. That's why the left's talking point was "77 cents on the dollar" for a few weeks (based on averages with zero regard for education, work experience etc.) until the President was called out on it. Then he pivoted the discussion to include those disclaimers because he had to in order to explain the discrepancy at the White House. By the way -- his reasoning and explanation were as sound as it gets. And now we can address the 6 cent actual discrepancy.”

bamasense on Apr 17, 2014 at 09:45:33

“LOL!! The President had to explain the 6 cent actual 'equal pay' discrepancy within the White House, to republicans, who mistake 'average' for 'equal'. That it's so close to 'equal', given any stats margin of error, is to be laughable when argued. I'm glad that you understand that the President's reasoned explanation, was based so soundly. I do too.”
