Lawmaker Says Equal Pay Makes Women Look Like Whiners

Minnesota state Rep. Andrea Kieffer (R) said that a package of bills that would provide paid family and sick leave and address the gender pay gap makes women "look like whiners," the Huffington Post reports.

Said Kieffer: "We heard several bills last week about women's issues and I kept thinking to myself, these bills are putting us backwards in time. We are losing the respect that we so dearly want in the workplace by bringing up all these special bills for women and almost making us look like whiners."
