Fox News' Melissa Francis: Gender Wage Gap Keeps Women Employed

Conservative talk show dummies are scraping the bottom of the barrel to come up with reasons that justify gender wage disparity.

Conservative talk show dummies are scraping the bottom of the barrel to come up with reasons that justify gender wage disparity. I think Melissa Francis, on Fox News hit the trifecta by saying that women should be very grateful that they make less money than men.

Fox Business host Melissa Francis attempted to justify the gender wage gap by claiming that women fared better than men during the recession because they make less money, allowing them to hold onto their jobs.

Francis appeared on the April 9 edition of Fox News' America's Newsroom to debate the President's push on the gender wage gap with Alan Colmes. During the discussion, Francis claimed that the reason more women than men were able to keep their jobs during and after the recession is because women make less money:

FRANCIS: I would also point out that men lost jobs at two and a half times the rate as women in this last recession. I know plenty of families where the man is now out of work and the woman is the one who's working full time. Probably because she makes a little less, so she was able to keep her job.

Praise, Jesus! Ladies, you should take to heart what Francis is saying. She wants you to bow down and kiss the ground in thanks for gender wage disparity because under George Bush's administration, when the global financial markets collapsed, women had the advantage. Way to go, girls!

I wonder how Melissa Francis' contract stands up against the male hosts on Fox Business?
