"And she plans on doing something about it. The first effort national priority on that page. Go. So that's Senator Harris who just happens to be running for president states, by the way, let's welcome an expert. She's a political columnist, a former Commissioner of the United States commission on civil rights during forty-three went to Harvard has written for Wall Street, the Wall Street Journal, national review online, Boston Globe, weekly standard much of a writing is focused on education, title, nine, and media bias, and Jennifer, welcome to wwl. Saw Jennifer birth. Sarah says here, how are you Jennifer? I'm fine. How are you doing? Well, thank you. I was telling our listeners, they if they regular listeners, they know that I live in what I call the estrogen. Sonam Lia married into a rather large family. A mother in law my wife, my stepdaughter, I have five sisters in law. I have five nieces and they're all very, very smart. And the wage gap discussions, one that generally, I just want to keep my head down. I did point out, however, couple times that we already have an equal pay act of that from nineteen sixty three and Civil Rights Act of sixty four that already outlaws sex-based employment discrimination. So is it a, a myth that women make eighty cents on the dollar as compared to men? Yes. The eighty cents on a dollar statistic is based on wall, national averages. So it, it compares all men with all women in the workforce, and that includes part time, workers, fulltime workers, it includes blue collar workers, white collar, workers partners for secretaries at law firms summers minors, nurses teachers unions. And when you when you look at all of that data together, yes, there is disparity of some say, seventy nine cents. Some say eighty cents on the dollar. But of course, it's not an apples to apples comparison, and therefore, it's, it's fairly irrelevant interpretive crafting in public policy. It's so men and women are not equally represented in all fields. And that's really taken a new Carrollton with the raw data, correct. That is correct. So we still live in a society where, you know, by choice, men are more highly represented in dangerous profession, such as mining you know, forklift operator the military. Talk show host police. Yeah. High risk it. Hi. Hi dangerous job, more men had to go into than than women and women still tend to go into jobs like social work, teaching nursing. And this isn't the stereotype. This is based on the data women are more represented in those fields. You also want to reintroduce you here, our, our guest is doggone Jennifer. Is here. Who's a terrific writer. I'm sorry, that I had a little mix up with your name, their problem mouthful. But you also point out here that there are studies that show single childless women to single childless men in the same age bracket. Actually, the women earn more not less, so you have to kind of differentiate this down to what the job is correct. So even advocacy groups that sort of support this notion of a wage, gap and support solutions, like Senator Harrises will say when you read the footnotes in the fine print that the controlled wage gap is about two percents. So when you actually are comparing apples to apples women and men in the same job. Same number of hours, worked, same degrees. All of those things. There is a small wage gap of about two percent and that could be based on discrimination, but it's not the enormous wage gap that. That Senator Harris suggests and also the Senator, according to the Washington free beacon, she has a little discrepancy in her own office, doesn't she? She sure does as did Hillary Clinton as did President Obama. So you have these politicians that go out and, and try to fire people about the wage gap and women are paid less than men and it's discriminatory. And then when you run the numbers on their own offices, you find guess what? There's a wage gap. They on average using raw data pay men more than women. And this is true on Hillary Clinton. Senate Cam Senate office in her campaign. It's true. And Senator harasses campaign as well as in her Senate office, and it was true in the Obama White House. Now, does that mean I am accusing those individuals of discriminating on the basis of sex now? A lot more. I would have to know what job men held what jobs women held their experience. How old are they? You know, are the men in the office today tend to be middle aged men with a lot of experience compared to twenty seven year old young women ID to know a whole bunch of other factors before I could insinuate such an egregious, Jennifer. If in fact, this past just say this happens what she her plan is to find companies that can prove to the government satisfaction that they pay men and women the same amount for the same kind of work. What do you suppose? A natural reaction of employers will be. Well, the natural reaction of employers if they have to satisfy government bureaucrats, they are going to eliminate a lot of flextime arrangements that a lot of moms and other workers currently have or advocating for because if they have to prove to the satisfaction of the bureaucracy that everybody gets paid the same amount. They have no incentive to give you flex time. Right. So I just take my own situation as an example. My husband is a partner at a law firm. I went to a similar law school to him. I probably could also be a partner at a law firm at this point in my career, I chose not to do that. I chose to work for companies, where I could do some of I work from home to be with the kids, I chose to work part time, I chose to take salary reductions because you flexibility as a benefit and many other workers. You also worked for Dan quilt, the beginning of your Cruden. You. I did almost a lifetime ago. Golfers, okay? Pretty pretty strong. He was pretty good. Yeah. Secret service codename with scorecard. Really great score. Say that, but I don't think it matters anymore. I think he's probably a you know, I think he's doing pretty well. And as a resident of Boston, how do you feel about the death of Bill? Buckner. Oh, well mixed mixed. I'm just saying I am. I'm not a big sports person. I mean obviously I know who he is. I know. Is mourning the loss right now. Uh-huh. Sure. Sports. For a time this before Bugner you know, he made a little mistake in the eighty six World Series. He was he. We loved him here in Chicago. Leeann Durham ran a monotone back in those days took his gig. But he went on to Boston. And of course, had that little that one little little mistake mistaken, unfortunately, he had lived. He actually never lived it down. But I appreciate your time, Jennifer. I'm going to take this article home and leave it on the dining room table. And I'm also going to put your phone number on it. So they can call discuss with you, personally, as opposed to me on happy to feel because I don't see any any pathway to victory for me. Even with us data. Good luck. Thank you. Appreciate your time. That's Jennifer bre senior fellow independent women's forum and here is VIN Scully. With Bill Bugner along. See. Well, it's way goes, I think they still had one more game of NAMA stake in which they then lost the Red Sox a little bitterness layer saw worked out.

"Two world championship something entire decade of the eighties. Mr hancock. Yes. Dan, O'Neill joins us. It's called celebration. The magic of the cardinals in the nineteen eighties in. It was magic cardinals assume they were on a run there. Every twenty years they have a decade where they go to the World Series three times the forties. They did it in the sixties. Fifties were dry decade in the seventies were a dry decade along come the nineteen eighties. The cardinals had come close team was getting a little bit better towards the end of the nineteen seventies. But things really changed beginning in nineteen eighty of course, the manager of the cardinals when this decade started was the captain, Ken. Boyer. Dan o'neill? Welcome aboard. Yeah. Good to be here guys. Yeah. You're right. Former MVP Ken Boyer was the manager at the time in the late seventies. And the cardinals had had a pretty good season and seventy nine with Boyer. They'd finished. I think third Yankee third does won the MVP Keith anandas was MVP an Garry Templeton one hundred hits from east side of the plate. So they had big expectations in one thousand nine hundred eighty and they got off to a terrible start in in June early June. They while they were firing Ken Boyer between games of a doubleheader on trio. They were introducing Whitey Herzog grant's farm as their new manager. And you know, why did he came in? And just changed everything. You know, he took a team that was slow had a lot of good hitters in one thousand nine hundred eighty six guys bad three hundred right? But they led the league and hitting into double plays which is combat. Nation. But you know, he came in made a course thirty one moved thirty one players in a year's time and built the team on speed and defense, and they took off and became known as Whitey by the moves that offseason that first off season were absolutely amazing. And I had forgotten till I was looking at this book, which by the way, if you're looking for if you've got a mom that's a cardinal nut or dad for mother's day. Or Father's Day coming up this book on the coffee table. I guarantee you your folks coming over to visit or going to open it up. And it's a great gift. It's got some amazing pictures in it, but I had forgotten that for a little Cup of coffee. The cardinals actually had Rollie fingers as a member of the Vaucluse over the story on that. Well that was a short. They had him for about a day. Yeah. A wide. He made the trade to get rally fingers. Who traded the big the big attraction in the deal from San Diego's point was Terry Kennedy who was promising catcher. And of course, the cardinal said Ted Simmons, and they just signed Darrell porter to a free agent contract. So he made a seven player trade in Raleigh fingers was part of it. Then the next day. He made the trade to Chicago sent Ken reits in leeann Durham to Chicago to get Bruce suitor. And why did he felt Bruce suitor with that split finger pitch was the the best reliever in the game? Of course, fingers was certainly right up there. But when he had a discussion he went and talked to rally fingers, and he said, you know, now that we have suitor there may be situations where you know, I come out and get you and bring in suitor would that be okay with you? And and he said, no, that's not gonna work. So it didn't take long before he traded Raleigh to Milwaukee along with the the big trade where he sent Ted Simmons there. Yeah. Just a lot of moving parts. So you get this ball club nineteen Eighty-one was a strike shortened year and the cartels actually had a pretty good season that season, but it was just a weird year. Well, yeah, they lead. They had the best record in division. They should have gone to the the postseason, but they split the season in the way it worked was there were two representatives, and they were. The teams that finished first in each each of the two halves cardinals in finished first in either half, but they had the best record combined them. So they didn't go, and they had another near miss and eighty nine you know, they were right in the thick of it at a big series in Chicago or just a half game out. And but they lost closer Todd were L right before that series started. And they lost the last game of that series late in extra innings because they didn't have were L. And then they went on a six game losing streak and kind of fell out of it. But there were right there up until the last couple of weeks. Dan O'Neill is our guest. He's the author it celebration. The magic of the cardinals in the nineteen eighties. Got a couple of book signings coming up tomorrow. Thursday, April twenty fifth seven PM at the Catherine Lindemann library at twenty three twenty three elm in Saint Charles. It'll be you've got a video presentation the presentation people really enjoy it. You know, it's an include. Words video highlights and a lot of the pictures from the book and some of the stories that are in the book Saturday on the twenty seventh. That's this coming Saturday at two pm at the deer run branch library thirteen hundred north main street, no Fallon, you'll also be signing books in having that conversation with the folks that day as well. You know, the cardinals if you if you look through this decade three World Series, but some of the players that came and went a remarkable story about the devolution of Garry Templeton that kind of leads off this book, you know, coming out of the seventies Templeton such promise in fact, Heathrow and said that Templeton might hit four thousand hits in his career guy with all kinds of ability, and it just crumbled. Yeah. Well, why if you talked to why do you hers today he'd tell you Templeton was the most talented guy ever saw ever managed and that includes Mickey Mantle and people like that. But. Yeah. Templeton just had a tough time. Here was such a great talent had a rocket arm. Switch hitter. As I said he had a hundred hits from each side of the plate one-season. Nobody had ever done that before could run like the wind. So tremendous talent. But. On a ladies day. At Busch stadium. He got into it with some fans and made a couple of obscene gestures. Why do he actually had to go out and grab them and pull them into the dugout suspended him, and you know, right after that Whitey heard from management and managed idea to move him wasn't management or was it? Oh, no. It was. I mean, it was upper man governorships. Yeah. So so yeah. So he he had a trade Templeton and at first sex. It's it's interesting because it I he was trying to make a deal for Alan Trammell of the Tigers. Now a hall of Famer. Yup. And then into Hayes use of the cub. And then it became. He he became aware of the fact that San Diego is willing to talk about Ozzie Smith, the light hitting great fielding these man made that deal, and and you know, that was really the foundation for what happened after that. I mean, Ozzy one thirteen go gloves is in the hall of fame. He was just sort of the the backbone of all those teams in the eighties that went to the World Series three times. I am struck in some respects with the parallels between Ozzie Smith and yada, your Molina. And let me share this both of them known for their exceptional defense and both of them will be in the hall of fame based on their exceptional defense. But both of them when their career started. I couldn't hit a lick and both of them through perseverance and really hard work became quite accomplished hitters. Yeah. No. That's a good comparison. I think Yati was probably had some decent offensive seasons in the minor leagues. But when he first came up, he certainly was here. His defense. And he's he's not a switch hitter. Which Ozzie was and he doesn't certainly doesn't steal bases. He does occasion last night last night about he's gonna steal this away. Ozzie Smith did. And but yeah. From a defensive standpoint, it's a really good comparison. And I've always thought, you know, I'm from Saint Louis, I was watching the cardinals in the sixties and. But I I don't think I've ever seen a baseball player who was worth the price of admission like Ozzie Smith was because he would do something every game. He may go hitless, but he would make some play in the field. That would just make you shake your head before. I let you go. And there's so many great stories in this book. And I wish we had more time to get to so many of them. But one of the great stories of the cardinals in the nineteen s was the left-hander. He gets off to a one in seven start in one thousand nine hundred eighty five and people were scratching their heads about this guy. I'm talking about John Tudor. He turned things around the cardinals went to the series. Yeah. It's hard to believe. The cardinals could lose two World Series game sevens with Tudor as their starting pitcher. And especially the eighty five season. I mean, he started one in seven and he finished twenty and one enduring knows, you know, from June third to the end of the season. His ERA was something like one point four two. Yeah. And he went twenty. And one he had ten shutouts and fourteen complete games. Now the league leading a complete game total last year was one the cardinals had Michaels pitched one complete game in that led the team. So people talk about Gibson's year and sixty eight as well, they should with the one point one two ERA, but Tudor was right there. I mean, what he did was really spectacular in any was great in the postseason as well. Until game seven against the royals. They didn't have anything folks you ought to grab this book. If you love cardinal baseball. You'll love this book celebration the magic of the cardinals in the nineteen eighties Thursday night that's tomorrow night. For those of you keeping score at home seven PM at the Catherine Lenin library on.
