9 Reasons Men Get Paid More Than Women (The Wage Gap Debunked)

7459 ratings | 143055 views
In this video, I debunk the notion that the supposed wage gap is due to systemic sexism against women by explaining nine reasons why men make more money on average. This video makes reference to another one of my videos, "36 STUPID FEMINIST QUESTIONS ANSWERED": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8M7KGe2UnmE Links to articles: Wage Gap Myth Exposed -- By Feminists http://www.huffingtonpost.com/christina-hoff-sommers/wage-gap_b_2073804.html The Biggest Myth About the Gender Wage Gap http://www.theatlantic.com/business/archive/2013/05/the-biggest-myth-about-the-gender-wage-gap/276367/ The Gender Wage Gap Lie http://www.slate.com/articles/double_x/doublex/2013/08/gender_pay_gap_the_familiar_line_that_women_make_77_cents_to_every_man_s.html The Gender Pay Gap is a Complete Myth http://www.cbsnews.com/news/the-gender-pay-gap-is-a-complete-myth/ Men’s overtime hours are keeping the gender pay gap alive http://qz.com/149428/mens-overtime-hours-are-keeping-the-gender-pay-gap-alive/ Overwork and the Slow Convergence in the Gender Gap in Wages (PDF) http://mypage.iu.edu/~cha5/Youngjoo_Cha_files/Cha_weeden.pdf Ask For A Raise?

Men don't take the time to complain about how they hat paid less
Matthew Hudson (15 days ago)
Here’s a little ammo the next time women complain about the wage gap: if women are paid so much less then men, why are most homeless people male? You’d think that if all men are paid so much more then women, they wouldn’t count for most of the homelessness. So explain that one SJW feminists.

IKR at my job, our 2 busiest days of the week are always understaffed because 2/3s of the female employees refuse to work the weekend, even thought they were hired expecting to work those days. but once they learned the boss could be wrap around their finger they started making their own schedules

My husband makes more than me an hour, and I don't believe in the gender wage gap. He makes more than me an hour because our job pays by years of experience. He has more years under his belt than I do. We both work the same job and the same amount of hours. The logic of this is pretty simple.

The wage gap is fake because IF you worked at a gas station for example YOU WILL GET PAYED THE SAME.

There's only an Institutional Wage Gap if you exclude all other sources of discrepancy in income (differing occupation, differing job positions, different employer, different amount of time in one job position, hours worked each week, time off, etc.) and there is STILL a wage gap.

My sister worked at a sonic and the manager there gave her more hours than the guys there but the guys ( this is why she left that job and he got fired) still got paid more in the same position, apparently the manager was clocking them in and sometimes actually clocked her and others out early, cutting pay for them while improving the guys pay. I am not saying that this is what all of sonic does, just him and when sonic actually found out, they fired him quickly, this does not represent sonic as a company, just some managers do that, because they are sexist, not every one of them, just some.

For the small wage gap that does exist from the true sexists that pay women less, it’s only 99.9 cents to the dollar (I think). But I have a theory that this is because the feminists have made these people think that everyone pays women less, so they can. So, in a sense, feminists made the wage gap.

I don’t like how some people just ignore the fact that when another person has the opposite opinion as them they just ignore them and don’t let them tell what they think. How civilized is that 🤔 They except you , for example, to believe them just by saying your wrong, having no support of them being right, and they except you to shut up because it doesn’t go with they believe in? They should hear people who has an opposite opinion and maybe they can change your minds wOAh. They wouldn’t like it if they weren’t heard out. And when they do have a conversation they rely on feelings or things they find in the internet that are false or have no data that back that up. How do they expect you to believe what they are saying is true with no evidence or false news, while on the other had you do?

I work in a fast food restaurant and I work hard with my fellow men coworkers while the females take orders and slack off and talk shit when they are not doing anything and don’t bother helping us. And I told them by saying “And you women fight for more wage? To slack off, while earning the same amount as us, talk shit and not helping us? Or is it, because you are all hypocrites?” Yes most of my female coworkers are feminists. I gave no shits of getting them triggered. I stated out facts.

10. Because not all industries and fields of work have the same amount of salary/wage paying funded pots to be able to pay the same wages/salaries as the higher paying industries/fields. So you will never get to the same level of pay no matter how good you are in that particular field. e.g Primary School Teacher v University Professor. (Bonus Option never mentioned) 11. Because women choose jobs/careers based on immediate Job Satisfaction and personal interest as a priority, not based on starting wage or potential increase of wages and salary in the future/long term. Some women will get lucky in their field and have JS and a Good Wage/Salary, but a lot will have an average or poor wage as an upshot of doing a 'worthy' job. Women who choose career over partners and family are rare and probably benefit most from career progression. But most will just work part time or in a not great paid job and just find a hubby who does actually get paid a good wage and has good prospects to 'top up their lifestyle'. So they get the best of all worlds. But without the Man they simple can't do it. Think how many Rich single mums do you know? Or women who waited until they were at a good point in their career BEFORE having children and had no partner involved.
JAM229 (11 months ago)
Is it really equal work though? I would argue that the pay gap is not large enough.
Finn Lahey (11 months ago)
All this is true, but the fact that women choose certain lower paying jobs and strive for less would mean that women as a whole seem to lack some sort of encouragement or support in going into these jobs. There are certain aspects of biology that could contribute to certain choices we make, such as men being more competitive and generally physically stronger, but the majority of the choices women make in society seem to be motivated by some sort of predisposition to strive for less. Do you really think women just choose jobs that have them make less money and don't work as hard because they are innately weak or something? There has to be some sort of factor that causes women to act this way, likely some form of implicit bias against women doing certain things, and girls being taught from a young age to act certain ways. Just because companies are generally not explicitly sexist doesn't mean there isn't injustice in the way we treat women that causes them to make these decisions.

Let's not forget what happens after a woman gives birth. First is maternity leave, which in most companies is unpaid. Next you have roughly 14 years to deal with things like kids getting sick. If a kid gets sick at school, the school is most likely to call the mother to come pick them up. That means they aren't getting paid for those 5 hours they would have been at work that day.

I used this video to argue the wage gap today for a final project in my economics class.. needless to say I won easily.
zach steidl (1 year ago)
these are the reasons the pay gap is sexist. No one is claiming that the pay gap is due to a boss laughing and saying: lets give her less money because she is a girl. The reason the pay gap is an example of sexism is because masculine tendencies like pushing for raises/negotiations lead to the person making more money. Exactly the reasons you pointed out are the reasons people claim it is sexism. That is what systemic sexism means. It is a system which takes in traits and rewards those of one gender over the other. It is not a system which holds sexist beliefs but a system that inherently discriminates against the traits of one gender. Now you may say that we can't change the fact that if you don't ask for more money you won't make as much. But if we want to end systemic sexism in the workplace we could implement changes like changing raises/promotions from open positions to be applied and interviewed for (which systematically rewards male traits) into taking a look at workplace performance with no notice of an open position. Do you see how you literally outlined why the system is sexist but since it didn't match your definition of sexism didn't label it as such? Anti-feminists also criticize feminist videos which open with definitions of sexism or feminism but clearly everyone on both sides agrees on the problems behind the wage gap and the only question is whether you want to call it sexist or not. Which you didn't even address. This would be a great video to use as support for the sexism of the wage gap in my opinion.
