The Democrats are trying to capitalize on the phony idea that because on average men earn more than women do, the labor market is unfair and we must elect Democrats to close the wage gap. But as Walter Williams points out in this piece, there are other wage gaps. Asians earn more than whites and older people earn more than younger people. Is it necessary for the feds to enact laws to close all such “gaps”? Is it even any business of the government at all?
