GOP Candidate: Women More Interested In Job Flexibility Than Equal Pay

ASSOCIATED PRESS

Former Secretary of State Terri Lynn Land (R), the likely Republican nominee for Senate in Michigan, said women prioritize flexibility in a job ahead of salary.

“Well we all like to be paid more and that’s great but the reality is that women have a different lifestyle,” Land said in the speech. “They have kids, they have to take them to get dentist appointments, doctors appointments all those kinds of things and they’re more interested in flexibility in a job than pay.”

Land’s comments were made during a 2010 speech at a Senior Women’s Club event in The Community House in Bloomfield Township, Michigan. The remarks were highlighted by the American Bridge 21st Century PAC.

The video was posted the same day that Democrats initiated an effort to draw attention to gender pay disparities.
