If it's so bad in US maybe she should go back to India, oh wait, her kind is already here & whining about same BS they whine about in US!

Thomas Sowell did a study that found when comparing men and women with the same education, same experience and same time in the workforce, there is no difference in pay. Of course with 300+ million people there will be anecdotal evidence to the contrary.

The wage gap [myth] is simply the average earnings of men and women working full time. It does not count for different job positions, hours worked or different jobs. It has nothing to do with the same job. It has nothing to do with discrimination

What lie that the news brings to you. Its simple: first, if you are the same entry level let's say into the MILITARY. Same age same rank and same pay grade. Guess what you need to meet requirements to promote. Male has a chart of requirements as do females. If a female wants to get promoted let's say the Army E-2 Private, she needs around 19 push ups, for the age of 17-19. For a male its 42 push ups for the same age. Tell me why males are more motivated for that promotion and females are not. Second: females are not likely to say over time as males are. And if they do it's not a consecutive thing. Men have a hunters mentality that must be met by the end of the day. It can be filling papers, policing the city, watering down fires, guarding inmates, staying longer at the ER. Or staying to flip burgers because the cook called in sick. It's a filling that men are bringing home the bacon. Women do not have that hunter mentally because it wasn't bred into them. Meaning some women enjoy staying at home, other enjoy being the bread winners. Third and last: be honest with yourself and dont be feed by lies. Seek a working environment that you enjoy and are happy with one that makes you give back to people. If your job is stressful and you start seeing money as the reason why you are there working it's time for a career change because no one wants to be attended be a person who hates their job. Once you are in a position where you see yourself for a long term then working for that promotion will be cake. And 10 years later you will no longer see a gap but a career that has been great and fulfilling. Please always be open minded even if yours are being challenged.

...and, as always, deliberately fails to highlight the false equivalencies used to fuel the gender pay gap myth

Notice how no one talks about SENIORITY OR TIME IN GRADE. Ask any union leader if everyone doing the same job, gets the same pay or benefits? Compare talent and time on the job. Not what sex.

Why are they still repeating this LIE that has been debunked so many times its gotten boring? If the left is willing to be this dishonest there's not much reason to take anything else they have to say seriously.

There IS a earnings gap, but there is NOT a pay gap. That is how this whole lie started. Women choose to work fewer hours, and choose to work in fields that pay less overall! Get the facts straight!

The “wage gap” is simply a flawed statistic stating that men *on average* are payed more than women. It doesn’t take into account the different jobs, nor their education. It has nothing to do with same jobs. It has nothing to do with discrimination.

women dont do dirty, dangerous jobs that pay well. Never see a female cement finisher, electrician, lineman, etc.

To all the feminist's out there... If you and your family were trapped on the second floor of a burning house, with no way out, and you had to pick between an all male or all female firestation to save you, what would you pick? Especially if everyone in your family was passed out and had to be picked up and carried to safety. If you said an all female department then you're either lying or retarded. If you said male then that proves that men and women aren't equal at everything. It also proves that men should be paid more than women for many jobs, because they aren't doing the same amount of work. For men and women working the same office job, it's been proving that men average over 40 hours a week, while women are averaging around 36 hours a week.

the non binary wage gap is the real problem.

"It exists in every occupation." "It's really difficult to uncover pay discrimination..." Doesn't add up. Making stuff up again.

oh did you just say that woman make up less job less job opportunities, less promotions, less overtime, and in jobs with negotiable salaries, earn less. women make up 47 percent of the work force . in most jobs they can do the minimum and that's fine. When it comes to overtime they can go home after 8 hours. they can stay like anyone else but what woman you know wants to do overtime. not many, so of coarse when it comes to promotions theyre not gonna get it. that's where the quote on quote wage gap came form. in every job ive had women don't have to lift heavy stuff and don't have to work as hard and get the same pay if not more if we both worked the same average 8 hours at the end of the pay period so what are you even saying. how are you gonna say oh women get less job opportunities when 57% of college life are women. they just don't pursue that trade they went to school for after they graduate. I know what you're going to say oh where is the other 3%. so what. if a woman does not have a job they are still viewed as a good contribution to society. they are viewed as someone that takes kids to school, cleans up the house, makes sure their husband has a plate of food when he gets home. a man on the other hand is considered lazy and not marriage material.

Got to be specific. Exactly what jobs are you talking about. Are you comparing the exact same jobs? This is always too vague. I used to work in publishing where I found it more discriminatory against men. No men in Editorial. Editorial meetings would see herds of young women rushing along to meetings, not a man in sight. Isn't that discrimination. All jobs should be advertised with specific wages, not an open haggling market. They should never be allowed to ask you what you are looking for or your job history. Just tell us what the job pays...end of story. Force companies to stop trying to undercut men and women in the workplace.
