A$k the Dolans

"Join us, don't fight us."  That's the message President Obama is sending Wall Street.  Earlier this week he urged big banks to get on board his financial reform plan.

CNN's Fredricka Whitfield asks personal financial experts, Ken and Daria Dolan, to tell us what financial regulation reforms are meant to accomplish.

    The thirty-three plus Security and Exchange Commissioners who were too busy playing on company computers viewing porn instead of taking care of business, they should be fired NOT merely disciplined.
    That is disgusting.

    Yikes! Both Fredricka and the Dolans were astonishingly clueless about the rights of a woman getting lower pay than her male counterpart. The hypothetical presented was the woman starts the same job as a man, same duties, etc. but gets less pay.

    The Dolans' recommendation was that the woman should gather her evidence and go to her boss and essentially cajole or beg him to pay her the same as the man if she's lucky, and maybe he'll do it if business picks up. Holy smokes! This is a slam dunk violation of the Equal Pay Act signed into law by JFK in 1963! Everyone (well almost everyone) knows that.
