Women earn 49 cents for every $1 men earn, new report says

21 ratings | 3452 views
The wage gap separating men and women is much wider than previously thought, according to a new report. The Institute for Women's Policy Research claims women earned $0.49 for each dollar that a man was paid over a 15-year span. That's a big difference from census data that show women make $0.80 for each dollar a man earns. CBS News business analyst Jill Schlesinger joins "CBS This Morning" to discuss the gender pay gap.

I thought cnn and other fake news outlets said 80 to the dollar ? You better get with your fake news buddies soon and get y’all a story straight before even the super dumb people catch on or use commons sense to debunk this lie

So it was 79 but now it's 49? The pay gap isn't real. It's the average earnings between men and women. Men work longer hours and harder and riskier jobs. Women tend to not work these jobs which is why on average women make less. It would actually be illegal for women to be paid less than men. Let me guess it exempts all other race of men except white men right? Because as a 15 year old white male I'm more privileged than a 32 year old working white female right? And I must make so much more than her because I'm a male right but I'm not legally able to have a decent job yet? You feminists are pathetic.

Curiously enough, if you take a job that pays less than someone else, then you get paid less than someone else.

Apparently the “79 cents to the dollar” narrative wasn’t enough for cbs, now they’ve upped the ante to “49 cents to the dollar.” Pathetic shilling

If the wage gap was true then why aren’t big companies hiring only women if they don’t have to pay as much to keep them employed as men?

ok so if women get paid less for the same job than wouldn't all workers be females? if i were to hire a man for 5$\h or a woman that does basically the same thing for 3$\h than i'd have to be dumb to choose the man. unless of course the man does his job way better and faster.

"The women's institute for social policy research"????? That's all we need to know. I'm totally tone deaf after hearing that!You have two institutions of total and complete fakery teaming up to misrepresent something. The "free press"and some university think tank of women on social policy. What's not to be believed? These morning shows will make you get up and go to work,even with bubonic plague.They should be called what they actually are. "Women are the center of the universe".

This is pathetic journalism. Please call it an earnings gap.
*"The wage gap is simply the average earnings of men and women working full-time. It does not count for different job positions, hours worked, or the same job. It has nothing to do with the same job. It has nothing to do with discrimination."* ~Shoe0nHead, Idk when

Choices is the key word for the gender pay gap. Women choices. Men are blamed for everything. Oh the air conditioning is too cold, men's fault. Women earn less for more benefits. Btw feminists, benefits are not free. If you look at the benefits and the pay, there is little to no wage gap.

More women attend college than men.  Since men with college degrees tend to earn more than women, there must be gender bias.  Sure.  I don't think the fact that the ratio of men/women majoring in Petroleum Engineering is basically the inverse of the gender breakdown for Art History has anything to do with it.  If you decide to take courses like Italian Renaissance Art instead of Differential Equations in college, don't complain about a gender wage gap between male and female dominated professions when you get out.

And men create and produce more than 90% of all the goods and services. Do you really think that women produce half of the value in sociey's workplaces? Take a drive and see who is building the highways, digging the drains, on the utility poles. Who is inventing the stuff taking society forward? Women benefit significantly more than men on government expenditure, women start to get more than she put in taxes from age 35, men will break even if he crosses 70. If women left the work place we might see an increase in productivity and better parenting of children and more stable economy and population growth.

The so called wage gap is due in part because men get degrees in more lucrative fields such as finance, computer science, and engineering. I would imagine that men as a group tend to perform better in certain jobs than women and get more promotions and higher merit increases judging by the high number of male CEO's. Also many successful entrepreneurs tend to be men.

wow... CBS is doubling-down on the already discredited "Wage Gap". its like CBS is paid by Russia and China to cover bogus internal US stories that causes dissent between Race, Sex and Political divides. when will people on the Left wake up to the fact they are being used and lied to. i dont mind people expressing their opinions but when those opinions turn into demands and trample upon my rights, that is where i draw the line. what ever happened to debate, facts over emotion and logic?

Eric Martin (3 months ago)
+Bruce Wayne its the fact that there are fields that women have no interest in perusing or they lack the physical ability to peruse. when a news agency takes takes a broad study and fails to factor in many variables of coarse they come up with a biased "wage-gap". things like over time, hazard pay, holiday where the job still needs to be done no matter what day it is plus jobs like construction and sanitation that tend to be lower skill but higher pay because of the nature of the job.

Griffin Mumbelgrofft (17 days ago)
What facts? Women earned less because they take time off to have children and tend to loved ones. They are taking total earnings from 2001-2015 and comparing men’s earnings to women’s earnings. Men worked more and earned more during that time. Big whoop This video is divisive because it breaks the labor market into two groups and is trying to get these two groups to fight. The real problem exists between workers and business owners. Whereas it’d be more effective if men and women workers united to take on business to get a bigger cut, CBS wants to sough division between the sexes so no advancement for workers will be made. CBS knows what they’re doing. They are a corporate shill for advertisers who advertise for businesses who want to keep labor costs down. Wake up
Ken MacDonald (3 months ago)
As you can tell by this #FakeNews, facts mean nothing to democrats. For example: 1) Greedy businessmen, in an effort to improve profits, ship jobs over seas, often hiring foreign women and children. 2) Greedy businessmen refuse to improve profits by hiring women. Choose one, since only one can be true.
Oh yeah, because this video is filled with facts 🤣👌😂

"Whataboutism" isn't a proper way to handle anything. "I know alt-right are bad, but what about alt-left?"...Even though it isn't the topic of the conversation (and the alt-left being a derogatory term used by the far right to discredit anyone on far left) and it serves no one. If that's how you want to handle the conversation though, what about men being (by a large percentage) more likely to commit rape then women? Can you see how "whataboutism" can be harmful?

This is the dumbest thing i have ever heard, if you read the report, you will realize how dumb it sounds and get shocked from how they got to the conclusion. Turns out you have to go to work to earn money WOOOOOOOOOW. It turns out it has nothing to do with a gender, its because women are less aggressive to ask for raises and not asking for more work hours.

Right, this report doesn’t take into consideration the type of job, hours worked, or education. It is just feminist propaganda to advocate for socialism. Basically is says that if you are a man supporting your family while your white works part time or works at home full time growing and nurturing the family that you as the man are oppressing women. Man hating feminists hard at work.

From the report.. 'An examination of the different labor force experiences of women and men across 15-year time periods, as is done in this report, shows that only 28 percent of women and 59 percent of men worked persistently full-time, year-round between 2001 and 2015'. .. less hours is less pay.
Ken MacDonald (3 months ago)
+Max the Scarecrow "They don't deserve as big of a wage as a full-time working man for the same job?" There's no evidence a full time working woman working the same job as a man doesn't make as much as a full time working man.
TheBlackiwid (3 months ago)
and even if they have currently, if they are older than 30 or so they likely have more breaks in their career less time to harnest work related skills so they have less experience and are less productive. And even woman that don't get children take more part time and do less late hours.
+Max the Scarecrow They get the exact same wage. That's the problem with statistics, a lot of people get confused on how to understand them. They are simply saying that LESS women work than men, so MORE men make MORE money and MORE women make LESS money. Again, not because the ones that DO work get paid less, but because a good half of females do not have a full time job.
Max the Scarecrow (3 months ago)
But what about those 28% that work full time? What? They don't deserve as big of a wage as a full-time working man for the same job?
