Lawmaker Says Men Work Harder Than Women

New Hampshire state Rep. Will Infantine (R) "said that women are paid less than men because they don't work as hard or as often, insisting throughout his speech that his argument was legitimate, despite objections from his fellow lawmakers," TPM reports.

Said Infantine: "Men, by and large, make more because of some of the things they do. Their jobs are, by and large, riskier. They don't mind working nights and weekends. They don't mind working overtime or outdoors."

He added: "Women make half of what men do because of flexibility of work, men are more motivated by money than women are."
