This new effort to have companies report to the government is really rich. If you look at this subjectively, it’s kind of a crazy idea.

Does anyone else see the Nanny State in this new regulation?
The Obama administration is proposing new regulations that would require large employers to disclose how much they pay men and women, the latest move in President Obama’s efforts to equalize wages.
The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission Friday published a plan to begin gathering pay data from employers with 100 or more workers, looking at information on gender, race and ethnicity. The government will use the information to target companies that may be discriminating against women for enforcement action.
