Thank you! More ammo for me to send towards people who propagate this narrative! I'm Dutch and there have been several "studies" funded by women groups in my country. Most of them use averages over the ENTIRE workforce. They take no other considerations into account. Just look for these groups citing averages over the entire workforce and you can debunk their crap immediately. 1. Always look for cited studies. If there are none, toss them a comment requesting the studies they are citing. (This goes for anyone citing any kind of study to support their argument.) 2. In the study look for use averages across the entire workforce. Tell them averages mean nothing if you don't take preferences into account. 3. Consider the industries mentioned in the study and apply supply and demand rules for industry types. Higher amounts of workers in industries where there is low demand imply lower salaries. It is possible men just work in industries where there is high demand. Such as IT or industry in general. Which means higher salaries increasing the "average" across the entire population. 4. If there are no industries mentioned, tell them. Tell them to consider that it could be men favor industries matching their interest and that those industries might be full of high-paying jobs. Women might work in industries they favor yet those industries are full of low-paying jobs. Which you can't tell because the studies mention no industry-types. Personally I consider womens-groups to be trying to do the good thing. They just don't have any analytical background so they just pick and choose whatever supports their narrative. Eloquently destroying their non-sense won't make you come off as a misogynist because you're debating the cited studies. Not the activists goals.

Ive argued with many people about this and they NEVER understand it. I also find in the cases I've seen like with my gf we worked together I made more because I worked harder and I made myself an asset so when it was time for a review I told them I wanted a raise or I would be leaving they made me the highest paid hourly employee in my dept.

There is no wage gap. In fact, in my profession, Engineering, a woman owned firm is much more likely to be awarded large contracts from large entities because the government that subsidizes said large entity requires it. That or a minority owned firm. Same treatment. So the reality in the Engineering world is there is a gap, i.e., women and minorities get more quality work.

T Gamer (14 days ago)
The funny thing is you can call this "Debunked" and caused by "work choices" but how do we actually know this for sure? The problem is that people look at the numbers and make theories based on those numbers. But numbers are not all that is at play here, in this video the only thing you compared were meaningless data and while most of it is correct the entire point of the video is to try to prove there is no true earnings gap however the data doesn't account for people. People discriminate, people offer overtime to either those who they believe will get more work done, who they know personally needs it and/or they want to hang with on shift. Because of this there is an overwhelming amount of men offered overtime and an underwhelming amount of woman offered overtime. Why? Because a man that works hard is viewed as a good honest hard working person, but a woman that works hard is looked at as a bitch or as a stuck up person who's up their own ass. This is where the gap truely come in as people who are viewed this way are less likely to be offered overtime however all of those woman who like less hours still exist. Exploring the numbers doesn't actually do anything if you don't know where the numbers came from. Yes, by law woman are protected, but discrimination exists and since it's not technically provable employers will continue to get away with it. As for my above comment, this has already been observed by a number of sources.
Independent Man (14 days ago)
Considering the level of stupidity in this comment I can only speculate that you're about 14 years old or you didn't bother to read the paper. No one is given preference when it comes to overtime. Everybody has equal opportunity to apply for overtime. Making absurd statements like "Because a man that works hard is viewed as a good honest hard working person, but a woman that works hard is looked at as a bitch or as a stuck up person who's up their own ass" is not going to cut it. And even if you could produce such evidence it doesn't apply in this case as their is no discrimination with respect to how overtime is allocated. Do some basic reading before you stick your foot in your mouth.

Morgan Ngo (16 days ago)
You can cite 100 other studies showing that if we factor in differences in job choices, how often women negotiate, etc., it wouldn't come close to explain that the wage gap exists. Every studies similar to this one simply explore the symptoms, not the cause why women make different choices than men. Because socially many women are expected to stay at home to take care of children, in many countries women are not given the same education opportunities like men do (recent famous scandal of Tokyo Medical university purposefully lower female candidates score down and boost male candidates', for decades). That is the real wage gap. This, is hardly the real story.

I was an Uber driver for almost a year. The main reason I made more than a woman was that I was willing to pick up crazy drunks at 4am that are unpredictable and sometimes wild and want to party still and make you do all kinds of dumb shit but....are willing to pay high surge prices. Some women just should not be the ones driving those people around. I made like half of my income from those fares in the end.

Mathew Hale (17 days ago)
An Australian study by Mary Stephen found similar effects a few years ago. When a plethora of variables are accounted for (or "time invariant unobserved individual heterogeneity" as she wrote it) the gender wage gap is found to still exist in the Australian economy. A massive 4% wage gap is unaccounted for by all the variables - and could therefore be construed as gender bias on the data. There is a gap, according to her research, but it is considerably smaller than the 20% 'average' commonly cited. I'm ignorant of the math, but does anyone know if a 4% deviation counts as "statistically significant" or not?

Gender pay gap is a myth. You can't get away in this country with paying women less than you do men based solely on gender. The very premise of claiming that happens based on gender is one of the most deceitful things the left has in the tool box.

I'm a public servant, I make the same amount an hour as my male counterparts, I"ve seen their pay stubs and they've seen mine. I chose not to have kids, I worked a lot of more OT and have made more than some of them some years. So yes, women who chose to have children definitely will make less money. So not a wage gap, just like more and more people saying, its the choice of job women take and having children...

Wiremu Hohepa (20 days ago)
This is a good explanation, although it's a bit boring. The title might be a tiny bit misleading though, because people might assume that the difference in wage/earnings averaged across different jobs can be explained ENTIRELY by JUST individual choices. I think that this is very clear and accurate about when men and women do the same job but individual women might choose to work lower-paying jobs. I have heard the argument that women (obviously) don't choose types of jobs because they're lower paying, but they are lower paying because more women choose them. It seems as though if STEM fields had higher proportions of women then they would have had less prestige, because that is a trend across places where women work in different fields. Many people think that teachers and nurses would be payed more if those jobs were seen as men's jobs.

Josh Smith (21 days ago)
The pay gap ( if there is one ) shouldn't depend on the total take home or earned per paycheck, but instead hourly or salary for the same jobs. If two openings are available in the same position, they it shouldn't matter the gender, but based on expertise and experience. This is the flaw of the "gender pay gap" as it seems to be based on total wages earned and not hourly or salary earnings which doesn't include paid time off or overtime.
Doug Patterson (21 days ago)
Thank you for producing a video to explain this paper. I also appreciate that you you have a web link to the paper referenced. On a related note I will note that in an intimate relationship a man still has social pressure to earn more thhan woman. In large part this is due to hypergamy. A minority of woman are willing to marry or even date men who earn noticeably less than them.

Peter Magro (22 days ago)
One have to compare the same jobs at the same employer. I will not be surprised if there remains a small gap but most off it for sure is because women and men work in different jobs often and women work much more part time. Often law forbids different pay due to gender, I think it is therefore not pay per hour or 8 hour day that is the real difference overall...

I had a co-worker trying to tell me that women are paid less than men. So I said "You're confusing wages with earnings". He cocked his head with a confused look on his face and said "What does that mean?" and when I tried to explain it, he just stuck to his guns. However he did start to derail when I asked him "So what you're saying is that the company we work for, is a criminal organization?" and he said "Well, uh, yeah they could be". I could have kept going and told him "Then why don't you go in to HR and tell them they're breaking the law?" or "Talk to the women that work here and pay them an additional 28% out of your own pocket to make up for the money they're not making?" and pretty much anything else along those lines.
louisphilippe1100 (23 days ago)
It's true that men are paid more than women on average. But one of the problem with these Women Gender Studies majors is that they don't understand Mathematics and Statistics. Averages are very ambiguous ways to represent statistics. Here is an example : ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- John owns a company and boast that he pays his employee a average salary of 300,000$ a year. This would mean that John pays his employee far better than his competitor that pays its employees 120,000$ on average. Let's look at John's company. John has five employees, including himself, that work at John's company. Let's break down each salary by individuals: employee 1 : 25,000$ employee 2 : 25,000$ employee 3 : 25,000$ employee 4 : 25,000$ John 5 : 1,400,000$ Taking the average, we can say (25,000*4 + 1,400,000)/5 = 300,000$ average. But as demonstrated, John clearly is hiding something crucial about his average wages. He is over inflating the average. While it's true that the average salary of employees is 300,000$, we can clearly see that besides John, literally everyone else is making poverty wage. There are many ways to prove an average but i will disprove my average using a median. If we take the median of the 5 employees who work at John's company, we get 25,000$ bang on. This, clearly shows that the average is NOT significant by any stretch of the imagination. (you can look up what a median is if you want to understand why it proves or disproves the significance of a given average). But again, there are plenty of other ways to prove or disprove the significance in statistics. I just did a simple disprove. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Point being, these Women Gender Studies majors fail to prove or disprove the significance of that average between men and women's salary. And why would they? It's in their best partisan gains not to do so. But wait, i'm still not done debunking. I will now tell what everyone has been told about the misleadings of the wage gap. There is still a hole in the argument because these Women Gender Studies completely ignored the fact that the researches which prove a wage gap also explained that the results is due to differences in wages for different jobs and different amounts of time worked. The study that these feminist like to quote clearly stated that the results do not imply that women earn less than men if they work the same job and the same amount of time. I'm honestly not surprised that Women Gender Studies with their voodoo research could not figure out the clear biases in their own research. They literally mislead their own research to push their narratives. Those feminist remind me of someone who was saying that meat is bad for health because the article he went over showed a correlation between people eating meat and not living a healthy life. But the article also clearly mentioned their biases and said that their results are misleading at best and should be taken with a grain of salt. I actually find their research appalling at best. If 90% of female babies died this year compared to male babies at birth, would any of you jump straight to the conclusion that hospitals are sexist and racist? Or would you dig in a little deeper to see WHY female babies die at an alarming rate in contrast to male babies. These feminist are jumping straight to the conclusion that hospitals are sexist, you didn't catch my vibe. It's a disgusting way to analyze a situation because rather than actually solve the problem, they create a false narrative that won't actually save any babies.

The so-called wage gap or gender pay gap is becoming a farce as more relevant information comes to light. It is specially farcical when would-be-experts are now advising us all that men should take more unpaid leave, accept more part-time employment and work less overtime to offset the wage-gap. The net effect would be that women's earnings over-all would be unaffected. The only losers would be the employers who need the work done and men who would have less earnings.

Probably said somewhere in the comments already, but worth repeating, the research paper was authored by two women. If the feminists were somewhat honest and said there was a wage gap of 5-7% because of 'discrimination' or choices that were forced upon them because of being a woman (single mother has less opportunity for overtime/shift work, much more of them then single fathers) I would agree with them and be willing to discuss what tweaks to the system could be made to make up the difference. So long as they tout the 21% gap, I'll keep saying b.s. and stop arguing because they won't listen.

Dan Hostetler (25 days ago)
I think verbiage matters. An intentional or discriminatory Gender wage/pay gap is a myth. There is a difference in a salary, wages, pay and then total income. The gender wage gap is derived by non-academics taking the total sum of gendered annual income and divided by the number of people in that gender. With no factors or filters to account for differences int he work force. Which would be horrifically wrong as it assumes ceteris paribus "all things being equal" not on a small scale which would be taught in school. But applies it on a massively large scale of hundreds of millions of people with too many differences and a job spectrum from minimum wage to multi million dollar earners. Different jobs pay different salaries. Working different hours yields different salaries. Different education yields different jobs. Vacation and sick time often do not have a universal amount usable to each employee across all jobs and levels. These are such basic facts every employee has experienced and knows. That not taking them into account is willful ignorance and intentional skewing of data calculations.

TheQwertyman999 (25 days ago)
While this does remove one argument that is made by feminists, it doesn't completely DESTROY the wage gap. WHY do women want flexibility? Why do women chose different work habits to men? If women are choosing these things because they're pressured into it by men/society, then that's still an argument for feminism. THIS DOESN'T DESTROY THE WAGE GAP ARGUMENT COMPLETELY!!!
GUNS & MAGIC (22 days ago)
That's destroyed by cross cultural, cross time & Scandinavian personality studies. Cultures & purely social pressures vary geographically, and across time, so if something persists in every culture throughout time periods, it's likely biological. The Scandinavian studies are an attempt to control for culture. In increasingly egalitarian societies ( where the effect of culture is pulled back ) we see differences increase, suggesting we've hit a biological wall and a point of diminishing returns. But even if there were no evidence that behavior were biological, like feminist seem to claim ( confusing a lack of perfect evidence due to our underdeveloped genetics and a total lack of evidence ), there's also no evidence for the cultural claim, and the biological claim would be more likely since it requires less assumptions. To say that something is biological is to say that there is a gene and it expresses itself. To say that something is cultural is to say there's a gene, it interacts with the world, then expresses itself differently. With no evidence on either side Occam's razor would prefer the biological case. But it does technically destroy the wage gap on it's own, because the wage gap claims that people are consciously and directly discriminating against woman in the workplace. The idea that women are influenced to make different decisions is another argument.
