Do Women Earn Less than Men? - Learn Liberty

Are women discriminated against in the workplace? Looking at the data, women on average earn an annual wage that is approximately 75% that of men, which many people believe is the result of discrimination. Learn more: http://bit.ly/1HVAtKP However, when Prof. Steve Horwitz analyzes the data more closely, he finds that women make certain choices, such as career selection and raising children, which tend to result in lower wages than men. These choices could be the result of personal preferences or sexist cultural expectations for women's work, though the relative influence of these two factors remains unclear.

Woman today are actually out earning men. Looks like if the wage gap was ever there, it has been over-corrected.

BS...the pay gap is in the job & industry itself. You mean to say if a man and a women are engineers both are paid the same..no they aren’t. That’s what the pay gap is about not about women’s choices. Take for example women in manufacturing operation jobs they are paid far less than men. It doesn’t matter if she has 10 children- if she’s physically doing the same job. https://youtu.be/W-ALTckN32A

Women don't make less money then men. It seems to be part of their nature to control men for things. This question of; if men make more money than women, is simply part of their natural narcissistic behavior.

Very disappointed by the end of the video. We should "convince" men and women etc. So you're endorsing social engineering? What about most of those women that we would "convince " to do STEM regret it afterwards and consider they have been led to choices that don't match their true preferences ?

One of the cool things is that for part-time work, women are paid more than men (average of all part-time workers). So these myths always have a lot more to them than just the flat numbers.

Pretty good example of while figures don't lie, liars figure. While Professor Horwitz observations are mostly correct they can be arraigned in a number of ways to come to a variety of conclusions. The Test is to drill down on a single job held by both women and men with equal experience and education. Do men typically get paid more. Unfortunately the answer is yes. It is likely this will change in the next five to ten years. In 2017 (for the fourth year in a row) more women than men received advanced degrees. including biological sciences While men still dominate Engineering and Business that is slowly changing. Some engineering fields such as electrical and chemical and nearly even. Some professions are now dominated by woman. Vet medicine being one, insurance adjusters and most accounting related fields being two others. . I'm less worried about the future of our daughters than our game playing sons.
The problem we face is that people are so quick to site statistics without looking at how the data was gathered. Statistics don't mean a thing in most cases because the studies are done with a desired result from the start. They purposely gather some information and purposely leave out other information that doesn't fit the narrative they're trying to portray. They do the same thing in all statistics, not just in politics. Look at some of the way some of the data is gathered in mental health studies. It's appalling what these people do to manipulate the naive masses that just take studies at face value. #BrainWashingIsReal

Actually this is not true because other women go in to all jobs and so do men so he is wrong it is about the gender of people because why do not all jobs have the same pay and just because he thinks that it is not about gender but sadly it is so these are all incorrect facts bracts on the job chart it said health so like a doctor and I know doctors are one of the most successful and one of the most highest pays job so this is a lie

No one should have kids.. both genders should pursue a bank balance at all costs. 9-5 is the ultimate freedom, not staying home in your pajamas loving and caring for your offspring. When women are finally masculinized and men are feminized to the point where gender is a fluid social construct and identity is meaningless - then the new world of fairness will begin. I am of the beautiful ones.

Where I work, we are required to use some equipment that is a bit heavy. All the female employees refuse to use it and pass it off to the males to use, We male employees, as gentlemen, don't argue and just do the job. Both the male and females are paid the same. Now where would anyone argue that these female employees actually do deserve to be paid the same when they refuse performing part of a job because they physically cannot do something or just refuse to do something? If anything, making men do something the females are allowed to refuse is discriminating towards men.

Let’s look at the unbiased research: Men are promoted at a rate of 30% greater than women at their first promotion.[1] If there is only one woman in the candidate pool, she has statistically no chance of getting the job.[2] We have a pay gap of 21% in the U.S.[3] and 61% in top 2% of wage earners.[4] Statistically women are better sales professionals than men,[5] yet are paid less and are a lower percentage of senior sales staff.[6] Women take on almost twice as much unpaid work as men,[7] and that correlates to decreased opportunity to assume leadership positions and lower labor force participation.[8] And, if women advocate for gender diversity, they are penalized.[9] [1]https://www.wsj.com/articles/its-time-for-companies-to-try-a-new-gender-equality-playbook-1474963861 [2]https://hbr.org/2016/04/if-theres-only-one-woman-in-your-candidate-pool-theres-statistically-no-chance-shell-be-hired [3]https://www.jec.senate.gov/public/_cache/files/0779dc2f-4a4e-4386-b847-9ae919735acc/gender-pay-inequality----us-congress-joint-economic-committee.pdf [4]http://www.businessinsider.com/top-two-percent-every-us-state-2017-7 [5]https://www.cebglobal.com/blogs/b2b-sales-why-you-need-to-hire-more-women-now/ [6]https://www.cebglobal.com/blogs/sales-leadership-where-are-all-the-women/?business_line=sales-service [7]https://www.nytimes.com/2016/02/23/upshot/how-society-pays-when-womens-work-is-unpaid.html [8]https://www.mckinsey.com/global-themes/employment-and-growth/how-advancing-womens-equality-can-add-12-trillion-to-global-growth [9]https://hbr.org/2016/03/women-and-minorities-are-penalized-for-promoting-diversity

Screw your well thought out and presented facts
John Crafton (9 months ago)
When I was the Sales Manager for a large-format computer store, I was personally responsible for managing the workforce on the sales floor. This included signing-off on terminations as well as wage negotiations for prospective job seekers. Yes, this was twenty years ago, but what I saw was not a phenomenon restricted to that single time frame. What did I see? People with experience in the field (or had any work experience at all) almost always negotiated for a better starting wage - some successfully, some unsuccessfully. Those with experience (both general work experience and job-related experience) tended to be male. People without experience in the field (or were without any work experience at all) would invariably snap up the first offer they were given. Almost every female I hired was part of this group. In fact, almost every female applicant was inexperienced - either in the field or in the workplace. What did this mean? A few things: 1) Women, in the 90's, tended to be entering the workforce (for my store, at least) for the first time, or were coming from other jobs which did not provide them relevant experience. 2) Such inexperienced job-seekers, including nearly every female offered a job by my store, was guaranteed to start at a lower wage or salary simply because they wouldn't negotiate for a better one. 3) If they started at a lower wage than their more experienced male peers, it wasn't as a result of gender discrimination. How does this effect the wage gap today? People entering the workforce 20 years ago would likely still be in the workforce today. If those people started at a lower wage tier than their peers, that hasn't likely changed. Even with raises, they'd still be a rung or two down the ladder from the rest. Has this changed? Not so much. Yes, more women are entering the workforce. Yes, more women have gained relevant experience. Unfortunately, they're still not negotiating wages and they're still playing catch-up with those who were either already in the workforce or had developed the requisite skills to perform the tasks of a given job. This results in a wage disparity - not because they're lacking a Y-chromosome but instead because of factors they themselves control. Opportunities absolutely exist for well-paying work. Unfortunately, those opportunities lay in areas outside the ones commonly chosen by female job-seekers. A technician at a fabricating plant will make quite a bit more than a tenured high-school teacher. An overland truck driver working with the petroleum industry will make far more than a social worker. A provisioning technician for a communications company will make more than a nurse. This isn't sexism - it's economics. We pay people what the market will support. Right now, there's a glut of BA-degree-holding would-be-"early-child-psychologists" while there's also a dearth of trade-school-trained would-be-"factory technicians". At the same time, people are leaving college without much (if any) work experience at all. You simply cannot expect to have a decent-paying job unless you can show you're worth it - something you cannot do without a work history. That piece of paper means a lot, but ONLY if you've proven yourself outside of academia. Since the majority of college graduates are female, and since the majority of college graduates have little-to-no work experience, we're seeing a lot of females having to catch up to men who tend to enter the workforce while still in high school. Is there a wage disparity? Only in the most general sense. Is that wage disparity caused by improper employment practices due to sex discrimination? For the most part, no.

Let me tell you a fun fact do you know that we men get payed less while women get payed more and also you people have been lied by the worst type of people ever and those are feminists and because of them they ruined tag of war dogeball and more now what are they going to ruin rugby , baseball , football and other sports too i say no no no and no. Do you know that we men get attacked way more problems than you women and you are like this ''oh only respect women but those ugly agresive men do not give them respect''' . And also do you know that we men earn 0,75 dolars while you women get 1.00 dolars . HELL you say it's okay to attack men but women no because that is sexsist but were you sexsist when you have ruined our games and saying those games are violent it hurts fellings and more . Todays schools are more girl frendly than boy frendly and do you know because of that 17 year old boys have the writing skills of an 14 year old girls for not paying atention to boys i have heard that boys have always been retarded but it turned out that men use to be way smarter that women.So

Women get paid less because they usually work less physicall/mentally exerting jobs and dont work as long as men. Men work harder jobs and for longer, thats why they get paid more Because modeling isnt that hard is it. but making a skyscraper is really hard and possibly fatal. I dont get why people get all riled up about the wage gap. Ive seen gender A yell, scream and hit gender B just because they are Gender B Im using variables for my own safety so noone gets offended Also sorry if I misspell anything its 1 AM. Sometimes people react calmly to such outbursts but the offender remains rude and ignorant. Ive seen people throw metal objects at police just because Trump got elected. Hes been president for almost a year now and America isn't a wasteland yet like some people thought it would. I have also seen Gender A pretend to be fatally hurt when a police officer gently swatted an object that someone was hitting him in the face with. Seriously people need to chill out. back to topic. Wage gap is fake and anyone who believes that there is a major wage gap probably also has a major brain gap.

Men are paid more for various reasons. http://news.gallup.com/businessjournal/196673/reality-perception-why-men-paid.aspx Checkmate
Michael pirruccio (11 months ago)
Mr.Lazybonez you still got my point across. Men ard paid because they work, more dangerous, higher paying jobs. Also men on average work more hours than women, even on the same jobs. Which is why men typically come out with more money for the same jobs.
DaddyboneZ (11 months ago)
Michael pirruccio no, no it's not checkmate. It says that man who work full time make more money than woman who work full time, this doesn't specify what jobs the men or the woman are taking, and men are probably making more because of the fact that they usually partake in better paying jobs, while woman and blacks and latinos take lesser paying full time jobs. So If a man is a doctor making 100000 dollars yearly and a woman is a principal making 80000 dollars yearly, it is clear who makes more money. If you take a man and a woman and put them in the same field, while they work the same hours and they do the same work and they have the same skill, there pay would be equal, as it's illegal for men to be payed more than woman. Also, many woman take maternity leave, so that would affect pay as well.

And it's not just choices women make, it's choices couples make. Often, couples delegate family roles according to their preferences and to the economic potential of each partner to shoulder the financial responsibility versus the day to day responsibilities of children and household. Ben Shapiro, a deeply conservative pundit, was raised by a stay-at-home dad while his mother worked outside the home. But he debunks the wage gap trope, because that trope is often misleading. Out of wedlock births might very well have a significant impact on this earnings gap. 25% of white and 70% of black children are now born outside of marriage. It is reasonable to assume that a decent percentage of these pregnancies are unplanned, interrupting or forestalling the earnings track of the woman. It is, in 2017, a responsible thing for women to be more mindful of this reality.
Irene H. (1 year ago)
The pay gap isn't talking about the overall amount that women make vs. men at the end of their careers, it's the fact that women are paid different hourly for working the same exact job as a man. F this video, trying to make it seem like the reason women are paid less is because they take time off and choose careers that pay less. No, the pay gap is where WOMEN ARE WORKING THE SAME FCKING JOB AS MAN AND GETTING PAID LESS BECAUSE THEY'RE UNSEEN FOR THEIR VALUE.
Satoru (1 year ago)
i had a talk with someone about the topic. I used all the facts and arguments. She agreed with the facts i mentioned her and told me women are paid less (for the same job) because people think men can do the job better. Therefore theyre not hired as much or paid as much. She didnt really gave me any references, she has not experienced it herself or known or heard about anyone who has, but she believes that prejudice exists. I wasnt convinced. Has anybody experienced getting paid less for the exact same job? being discriminated like that for being a woman? im 18 and ive never had a job so i dont know how all of that works.
Darklipstikgirl (1 year ago)
1:06 women also get "degrees" in asinine things like Child Care and 19th-century French lesbian pottery. By the way, it is also illegal to pay someone less just because they are female. It`s called the Equal Pay Act, a federal law and it has been a law since 1963. If any woman claims to get paid less because of her gender, mention this law and ask her why she isn`t having her lawyers sue her company in civil court. See how fast she shut`s up.

For every person (or feminist) reading this: The gender wage gap is a MYTH. A very big LIE, that still goes on in the world, for MANY years now. Yes, women earn less IN GENERAL !!! The word is in GENERAL!! About 21% or so. This does NOT !!!!!!!! mean they get 21% less salary / wages compared to men for EVERY / or THE SAME job!!!!!! Get this through your skulls. The "gender-wage-gap" (this word is VERY misleading / not correct at all!) just compares salaries of men with that of women. NOT for every occupation or anything like this, it just throws ALL the occupations (and thus also all individual situations from both men and women) on ONE HEAP. And then it concludes that men on average ! earn more than women on average ! (about 21%) 1) It (the "gender wage gap") does NOT take into account that men often work in industries / occupations that simply pay more! (compared to women) 2) It does NOT take into account that men often work longer hours a week than women 3) It does NOT take into account that because of this, men also get more promotions / salary increases in general (people working full-time / long hours simply get promoted more often, thats just the way it is) 4) It does NOT take into account that men simply more often ask (!) for a salary increase, compared to women. So it is just an AVERAGE comparison of salaries / wages of men and women, nothing more. However feminists (often purposely) TWIST this truth / twist the numbers and the interpretation of this outcome. And SIMPLY state: ALL women are being discriminated 21% in pay compared to men for the exact same job. This is just SO wrong!! (and often they (feminists) even get support / back-up from politicians , like Obama, who just copy their / this statement) Its just a big fat LIE. Here is a link to a FEMALE professor (!) also explaining it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=58arQIr882w&index=47&list=PLytTJqkSQqtr7BqC1Jf4nv3g2yDfu7Xmd Can we PLZ stop with this nonsense-statistic from now on??

Haven't you overlooked the FACT that men are STILL in positions of high power which directly affect the futures and lives of women? Choices??? Women have always had less opportunity than men. For so many reasons and to call them "choices" is being extremely obtuse. Ignoring social expectations and the reality of the social norms that still linger.

Women don't have to compete against men in pro-tennis except mixed doubles with a male partner, they also play fewer sets so why should they get paid the same thing? Women less likely to get killed on the job and live longer, as guys more likely to take more dangerous jobs such as Lumber jack, Alaskan Fisherman, fire fighter, race car driver, coal miner, infantry, paratrooper, etc.
Thomas Eibel (1 year ago)
Prof. Horwitz just explains statistics, he doesnt come to the bottom line. In my opinion it is unfair, to blame women, saying it was their own choice. At least one major point they earn less is, that they take the responisibility for the kids, for our future. A conservative mind may say, thats the womens role. But telling all these women: Just make another choice and don't talk about the gender pay gap would consequently lead to no newborns at all. A mens society, that tells women: just act like men (= just make the same decessions) to gain the same power and possibilities than men in last consequence would lead to extinction. My question is: Why is it, that an engineer is paid more, than a nurse? Is it, because there are less engineers and market price is high? Is it, because nurses or teachers have less responsibility in their job? Another question: Why is this gender pay gap about 25 % in the U.S. but only 7 % in norway, sweden, denmark, e.g.? At least it is true, that this gender pay gap is not caused by capitalism, but is the outcome of a man-made society and its mindset expressed by legal regulations as in laws, taxes, examinations, governmental promotions, e.g. Prof. Horwitz argues against unfair payment - but this is not the topic of gender pay gap. The main subject is, whether a society is respectful or unrespectful against women and their kids and femal-dominated working areas.
Paul Jackson (1 year ago)
1) They CHOOSE to take responsibility for the kids. Most women don't want their husbands to be stay at home dads. 2) An engineer is paid more than a nurse because its a more difficult discipline and if it was paid the same as a nurse nobody would be prepared to make the effort to become an engineer. 3) Nordic countries artificially impose pay parity but this just acts to disincentivize men.

This video is great but doesn't go far enough. There's also... 1) Differences in whether they want non-salary benefits (medical, retirement, vacation time, etc) or all compensation to go directly into paychecks 2) Total hours worked per week on average (and thus men tend to do more overtime work) 3) How willing men vs women are to commute longer distances for a job or relocate to a new city altogether. ...and so on. It would be interesting if someone had a fuller list and decided to track as many studies or articles on the topic for omissions.

Why don't you just state the simple fact that on average women earn less then men? They don't get paid less or have lower wages for the same jobs. It is simply that on average women EARN less then men. Them maybe explain the difference between wages and earnings.

Not only do men choose more dangerous jobs, but it's also a statistical FACT that men generally are morel likely to put in overtime, and more hours at work, so of course they are going to earn more. Let's say two people who work in retail, in both the same job, at the same place: one a man, and the other a woman. 9 chances out of 10 the man's going to make more because the man is more likely to work double shifts, put in for overtime, and work longer hours overall. Is there a gap? Yes, but it has NOTHING to do with gender inequality.

occupational deaths per year 4400. 4100 men, 300 women. 300/4400= about 7% (FEMINISTS may need this step explained) so women should make 7 cents for every dollar men make. http://www.bls.gov/iif/oshwc/cfoi/cfoi_revised13.pdf

I agree that if all women salaries are added and divided by the number of women and this same method is done for the salaries of men; then men would earn more money. However, one must compare women and men salaries while doing the same work, adhering to the same work standards and rules, and reporting to the same manager. There is a disparity in salaries of men and women working in engineering. I am an african American woman over forty with three engineering degrees, one Bachelor and two Master's. My economic losses would be well over $1,000,000.00 when I retire in the year 2020. I had evaulations ranging from excellent to very good, yet I was denied opportunites for growth. I face three fold discrimination based on age, race, and gender. I complained to my supervior, manager, director, and human resource representative. However, my complaints were ignored. So, I wrote a fourteen page (single space) report titled, "Workplace Discrimination: An Employee's Experience, Perspective, and Determination to Seek Equality". This report was sent to the President/CEO, Chairman, Vice Chairman, Vice President, Head of the Legal Department, three Board of Directors, and two members of the NAACP. I was illegally terminated within six months. I sued in both state and federal district courts. These cases were dismissed. Then, I appealed in both state and federal appellate courts. Again, both cases were dismissed. I spent over $27,000.00 fighting against injustice. It is not a myth that women earn less than men. It is not a myth that Blacks earn less than whites. It is not a myth that younger people earn more than older people. Why does such disparity exist? Patriarchial white male supremacy is the reason why pay disparity exist. White men wanting to maintain their dominance over women and racial miniority groups. I have seven videos which addresses my experience in a STEM field. These videos were posted on April 13, 2016. My niece tells my story, please watch.

So it exists, but it doesn't have much to do with gender discrimination. It mostly deals with he average choices women make in the job market
