Teen Vogue reported Wednesday that Iceland just made history by becoming the first nation to make equal pay for men and women a law, and now they’re asking for the United States to follow suit.
Okay, do the U.S. next! https://t.co/wL9GABBWmK

They made history? But didn’t President John F. Kennedy sign the Equal Pay Act into law mandating exactly that?
Narrator: They did, it was called the Equal Pay Act of 1963… https://t.co/mfSYpdE9ur

Stick to teaching girls about sex toys, this is way out of your depth.
It is called: "Equal pay act of 1963". https://t.co/Xl8JoSgVIQ

Imagine my surprise a teen girl's magazine doesnt know about the equal pay act of 1963. https://t.co/DvUZP7gGXG

A teen girl’s magazine that was just guest-edited by none other than Hillary Clinton … who would have been paid the same as Donald Trump if that whole run for president had worked out.
Already been done. Several times, because you people keep crying that it's still not illegal when there have been several acts to reassure it.
If it gets done again, within 5 years you'll claim it hasn't been done. https://t.co/AMvh2vk0e6

Teen Vogue has apparently decided the 60s and the Equal Pay Act never happened. ?
A little googling would have helped before they blasted off with the (as usual) out of touch feminist rhetoric. https://t.co/G5XsJ2XcLm

But, like they say in the piece, poor Today Show host Hoda Kotb made $18 million less per year than Matt Lauer … and the only possible reason could be the gender difference.
This is why we laugh at you.

Might as well laugh at Patricia Arquette while we’re at it.

Hey look, socialist Bernie Sanders even made a little movie about it and added some bogus stats too.
Iceland just became the first country in the world to make it illegal to pay men more than women. In the United States in 2016, black women made 62.5 cents on the dollar compared to white men and hispanic women made 54.4 cents. That is a disgrace. pic.twitter.com/y2sxSWYVrm

"Iceland just became the first county to legally require equal pay between men and women"
Imagine being dumb enough to think that's true https://t.co/dMkykf6qMn
