Greg Abbott doesn't seem to care about equal pay for women

Greg Abbott says he would not sign legislation making it easier for women to sue their employers over pay discrimination.

Here's the thing:  On top of being paid less, women often have less time than men because they are primary (or sole) caregivers for their children.  Not always, certainly, but often.  A recent law, if passed, would have extended the amount of time a women has to sue her employer for a fair wage.  (Of course, Governor Goodhair vetoed it.)

Greg Abbott was asked about it, and said if it came across his desk, he would not vote for legislation like this.

The equal pay issue has been plaguing Abbott's campaign for a while now.  Ironically enough, even though some of his Republican allies are coming forward with reports of equal pay issues in Abbott's own offices, he won't back down from his stance.

Interesting choice, considering more than half the Texas electorate are women...
