To the editor:
It is obvious U.S. Sen. Scott Brown strongly supports women's rights in the workplace, and it is disappointing that Democrats are using this important issue as a political football to misrepresent the senator's views.
The equal pay bill that came before the Senate recently would have destroyed jobs in Massachusetts and across America. Already, too many women are out of work, or have stopped looking for work, or are stuck in a part-time job when they need full-time work. Sen. Brown is committed to pushing legislation that helps women find jobs and advance in this economy.
Anyone attacking Sen. Brown on this issue should know that he fully supports equal pay, and would have more than likely voted for Lily Ledbetter had he been in the Senate in 2009.
The real issue should be about Elizabeth Warren, and how out of touch she is with reality. She just doesn't understand how fragile our economy really is, and her willingness to give this proposal a rubber stamp, with no regard to the job losses it would lead to, is irresponsible.
While Sen. Brown supports women, and is fighting to protect their jobs, Elizabeth Warren is proving she really is a jobs destroyer.
Trust me, as a small-business owner I know first hand just how destructive her policies would be.
