Do you believe in the gender wage gap?
In some jobs yes. But not all. These blanket accusations hurt the convo not help.
The touted 77cents stat is misleading, because it only compares total earnings without controlling for various other factors. Women doing the same work as men make about 97cents per dollar. Not perfect, but not the end of the world. The real problem that should be being discussed is why these extraneous factors exist that cause women to choose less lucrative jobs.
Actually women working the same job as men get the exact same amount. There is no wage gap at all. You're not including seniority or the willingness to work night shifts.
I can't tell if you replied to the wrong person because your post makes zero sense in response to mine.
You claimed that women still get 3 cents less. It's not even that much.
I don't believe that is correct, but regardless, it's completely separate from the actual point I was making.
Nope. If anything, women in same job as men might make more than men.
Do some research
I've done extensive research. No respectable economist regards the wage gap with any bit of acknowledgement. It's been proven fake countless times.
I believe in a gender earnings gap...
It had been debunked so many times it isn't worth a second thought.
Is it even worth that first thought?
Not even worth a half a thought.
I don't believe in fairy tales.
