Yes these women are stupid they fail to mention why women get paid less then men it's because they choose to they take more sick days off they take more days off to be home with the kids they take more vacation days they take more injury days they take paternity leave and also they refuse to get higher paying jobs and women are not as ambitious as us men are

You mean the quarter of ambitious you "men" are?

If women want to become equal then they need to work in the oil fields and do a lot of the jobs that only Men want..also...women become Mothers...The truth is Women are payed more.....CBS is a Socialist Propaganda Machine.

Women do NOT deserve equal pay. Because they do not perform equal work. Women are lazy. Have appointments, have to leave early to check their kids, take maternity leave for 12 weeks, and do not perform as much as men. That's the answer to why women do not earn the same as men. Inequality pay gaps are the biggest BS ever. Men produce more than women and are more dedicated to their work than women. I have women turn away from doing the work that needed to be done, and left me to do it. I've hired Female attorneys who became pregnant and walked away from their jobs. I will never hire another female attorney. I've also had instances where so called female leaders knew of a potential active shooter and did nothing about it. Females a re a huge risk and do NOT deserve equal pay.

I think the reason why women get paid less is because when a company hires you they ask you "how much you like to get paid?". I think we are just better at negotiating which is something I'm surprised no one talks about. you see what I usually do start off at the amount previously made at the past company. if it can't be done then it can't be done but at least I will have peace of mind that I had at least advocated for it. but usually, I get paid in the same amount.

I love equal pay. I used to load out 1500 bricks a day on the scaffold but an average female labourer will struggle to do 800. On the same money I get my work done and go home early. If I have to stay I put my feet up and read a magazine or play on my phone. Alternatively I have a few breaks chat to tradesmen on the site and pace myself. Equal pay, equal amount of work. It's great being a man, life has never been easier!! Only a fool will get rid of the worker than can double output when needed, of course my palms need layering. Double work, double pay.

Here is the real problem, I will use myself as an example, I work in an industry that requires a lot of physical strength , as well as a high level of skill, over the years I have worked with women attempting to do the same job, and there was much complaining, much time off , and way less profitability from the women trying to do a job that requires the strength and stamina of a man, as well as a high level of skill. So the women made less money, the fact is men and women are different to ignore this fact or try to act like it's not true is just plain stupid, these women were upset that the us men made more, but here is what is so stupid about this debate employers pay based on results, what you produce and the fact is every single one of the women that attempted to do the job I do, produced less than half of the profitability that I and my male counterparts did. Why do they think they should make the same pay if they don't work the same amount and make the same profit? I understand there are fields that women excel at don't get me wrong I love women I married one and my Mother is one but equal pay is only a valid debate if the women are producing the same result as the men I can tell you in my industry they do not! I work 15 hrs a day 6 days a week the women start to complain after 8 hours and by the 10 hour mark they are all gone out of the shop and the hours they were there they took tons of breaks and constantly asked the men to help them do most of the heavy lifting fortunately they have all been let go the boss had no choice even at their lower salary they were costing us money so if your going to have an equal pay debate you first need to look at what the men and women in question are producing if not the debate is stupid and has no merit whatsoever

+Marcus Taylor I agree. Feminism ruined women. The problem is, women want everything. All rights reserved, on this one. I wish more women would be submissive and obedient. Obey their husbands. Then, it wouldn't be all women are angry man haters.

Being a man is ace, being a woman trying to make it in a mans world (which it always will be) is bound to suck. Gold doesn't need to advertise it's value because regardless of what is said when you break it down we all know what it's worth. Feminism has made things bad for women, not really hurt clever men who know how to roll with the times. The only men who complain are feminised soy boys, real men don't even argue because what is there to argue about?

Princess Emerald Well that’s Unfortunate. There are some bad apples out there. But most of us are great Male members of society. So to judge all of us on a few is not fair or Come up with excuses or BS like the wage gap that has been proven not to be true to Tear men down Is ridiculous

No wage gap. Earnings gap. And it’s women that create it, not men. This is because they choose lower paying jobs and some other factors..
Princess Emerald (1 month ago)
+Marcus Taylor Minorities are paid less for the same job. There is a wage gap. They don't seem to want to truly stand for equality.

+Princess Emerald Top surgeons are almost always men, nurses are the labourers checking charts, making beds and handing out drugs. Plenty of male nurses, but nurses don't really save lives. Dental hygienist requires almost zero IQ where an air traffic controller is not only a responsible job but requires a lot of intelligence and has dire consequences if mistakes are made.

+Mat33 Yeah. When it became male dominated.

Princess Emerald I haven’t said that women aren’t important. And programmers probably also started getting payed more because of the computer industry become way larger and more important. And the programming/computer science industry never was really dominated by women (I think, I’ve looked it up).

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.

And there are stuff men do that's somehow alright. Women do through pregnancy. They can't do other stuff. She's doing him a favor, stfu.

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.

Female nurses are paid less than male nurses. It is real. Besides, us women have to go through pregnancy. You men don't. 😤

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.

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.

But, nursing is an important career. Sometimes, it's not what it is, it's what you're doing. Nurses save lives. Lineman don't. Just saying. ✌

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.

I'd rather have a female nurse. Besides, women do jobs that are important, but on a different level. Teachers are helping raise a generation. Who did most of the rearing of that firefighter and taught him well? His mother, most likely. Give women credit, bro. They do stuff that men can't as well. Admit it. Women need men. Without us, 1/2 if humanity is gone. Respect the uterus. Respect the woman. But, yes, women should obey men, though. Obey your husband.

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

+babatunsdai brunner Female dominated careers automatically pay less than male dominated. I've seen it. For example, LPN makes 45,000 a year, whereas a male nurse is paid slightly more, women only make $.87 of the dollar. Teachers have a lower pay gap, but it still exists. Female dominated careers are seen as less important. Sometimes, pay should not be based on what you major it is and on what career you're doing. Nurses save lives, engineering is different.
babatunsdai brunner (1 year ago)
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.

+Princess Emerald you are ignorant a male nurse and a woman nurse makes the same idiot my sister used to be a nurse and she was making as much as her male nurse co workers she is now a nurse practitioner making more then male nurses you see how that happens the reason you women get paid less is because you choose to you don't work as hard you take more time off to be with your kids you take more sick days injured days vacation and you women are less ambitious then us men

Mark Andrew (2 years ago)
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.
