@Doctor Krieger, humorous post not allowed! Must be political.
@Doctor Krieger, Jinkies
@Jessie02, False! Fake news!
Like I guess the case is closed
@megamanx181x, No it's not, Shaggy just opened it. It's right there in the picture.
There’s an EARNINGS gap nothing more. That’s what happens when you don’t choose stem fields or skilled labor
@carguy25, and on average work fewer hours per week.
@Azyoulikeit, and birth children...
@carguy25, it’s pretty much what happens when culture dictates that the “man of the house” cliche should be followed. Men are told that they need to work to provide for their family, so they go to work to earn as much money as possible. Teaching this (as well as the stereotypical macho bravado) makes men take less sick days, vacation days, and means they will come into work as long as they can still drag themselves through the door.
Sadly this results in stress, anxiety, and burnout when some men do this for too long. It’s actually what happened to my father, just worked himself so hard that when something finally triggered his anxiety, he just broke down. Now he has health problems like constant migraines and blood clots in his leg to where he can’t physically get a job. All from the culture that taught him to provide for his family and resting only when you retire... I need a drink
There are numerous things that factor into why the gender earnings gap exists. There will always be discriminatory workplaces or bosses, but women also negotiate wages less, choose less fiscally rewarding careers, are more likely to quite there jobs or work part time if they start a family, etc. These issues are likely socially constructed at least partly. Saying the differences are purely genetic can get dicey fast. Claiming the gender earnings gap is purely due to sexist discrimination is ignorant. Claiming the gender earnings gap does not exist is also ignorant.
@Octopus prime, I don't hear too many people talking about same job pay. That's the number we should be looking for. Women as a whole will always make less than men because men are more likely to take on the provider role than women.
although my 5 seconds of research does suggest women do make less for the same job across the board.
@Jessie02, okay since all im getting is down votes with no responses it was the freaking census bureau that says women make less than men for literally the same job. Dispute that.
@Jessie02, that’s what women do talk about. But the people on here who seem to think they know everything about this wage gap issue don’t ever look at that. Hence, your down votes. (And probably mine as well)
@ios11, I honestly haven't looked too closely at the issue as I've been fortunate financially. I think it might be time to look a little closer.
@Jessie02, my considerably more than 5 seconds of research shows that after normalizing for variables, such as work experience and specific career path, the wage gap between men and women consistently averages out to be substantially less than the margin of error (we're talking a small fraction of a percent here). Effectively negligible.
@Doctor Krieger, I'm talking same job same expertise.
@Jessie02, as am I.
But there's nothing there...ohh I get it
The painting behind shaggy is laughing at him lol
To be honest there's no wage gap. It's gender social constructs that appear there's a gap. For example, 10 women and 10 men go for a job. The ad advertises its 50k per year for everyone and they need 5 women and 5 men. In reality, men are most likely negotiate pay while women don't. There's your pay gap. One example. Don't take it too literally.
