Sure, just take engineering as a major instead of gender studies.
@Atom bomb baby, shut up with your facts
@Atom bomb baby, that’s something that I always get irritated about when this comes up. If they’re getting paid less for truly equal work, that’s a problem, but vids on this topic from left leaning commentators has never satisfactorily shown me this happening
@Atom bomb baby, that's what I did, and it's working out great.
@Captain Anderson, so my crazy liberal cousin went off about this topic, and I fired back at her about how it is illegal to pay 2 equally qualified people less because of gender and race. She said "then the fact that this is my life, and there are men at my job making more even though they haven't worked as long is fake". I told her that if those men had the same degree, amount of experience, and job title as her, then yes it was illegal and she needed to report that to her boss and threaten a lawsuit. Surprisingly enough she never said anything else since she never went to college and barely even graduated from high school.
@iLikeBigBooks, I think you’re confused as people with similar jobs and experience can make different sums. It happens all the time, and often pay is negotiated during the offer process. Labor is a market just like anything else, and you’re time is worth what someone is willing to pay...
@Captain Anderson, it is a problem if they are getting discriminated against based on sex, but as that’s already illegal this shouldn’t be protested when it occurs, it should be reported and investigated.
@Captain Anderson, it’s all because they lump all wages from all professions into an average for each gender. It doesn’t take a genius to know that you can’t make a valid comparison between the wages of an engineer and a public school teacher. Additionally, if I’m remembering this correctly, stats have shown gender differences in college degrees with male majorities (not because of sexism) in 4 of the top 5 high-wage degrees. Women were the majority in some of the low-wage degrees (social work, useless degree A, etc). To top it off, women, on average, work don’t work as many hours as the average man in the same job and position. Essentially, the “wage gap”is an agenda-driven pile of bs. (To prevent immediate dismissal, I am a biological woman, one that is insulted by sex-based preferential treatment.)
Ok, rant over.
@Atom bomb baby, I wish I could like this more than once
@The Eye of the Hawk, see I (think I) remember vlog brothers presenting a study that controlled for profession, and which showed a still unexplained gap, but didn’t seem to show a significant difference in between members of the same profession
@Atom bomb baby, was gonna write a 5 paragraph rant about how the wage gap is BS and all that, but you nailed it bud
@iLikeBigBooks, Yeah, but banning guns means nobody will have guns, so
@Captain Anderson, it’s not unexplained. On average, women work less hours, take more vacations, and do not negotiate as much for higher salaries.
The wage gap denies any personal responsibility for women to do the work to get paid the same. It also denies that in a number of areas women are already being paid more.
@iLikeBigBooks, one of my favorite comments. I like you.
@Captain Anderson, did it account for total hours worked? I ask this because, on average, men work/are more willing to work long hours, odd hours, and/or frequent overtime. In comparisons between two in the exact same job and position, men often work longer/more overtime than women. If it’s not attributed to hours, then diligent research must be done for those cases. You could easily overlook the minutia of company pay structure, or one of them does more than their job title. If there’s actual sex discrimination, it should be properly investigated before conclusions are made.
But honestly, there are so many more important women’s issues that feminists ignore; like child brides and honor killings.
"We're so progressive and woke, that we automatically assume all stick figures are men, and to be a female it has to wear a skirt, thus reinforcing gender stereotypes that we also keep whining about. Look at us making the world a better place and definitely not just being a pain in everyone's ass and making things worse"
You do get paid the same...
@Wallace R West, did you just assume their payment? *Triggered*
@Wallace R West, if they work the same anyway
@Wallace R West, as a female engineer, I actually get paid more than some of my male counterparts. But then again, I negotiated my salary going in.
@iLikeBigBooks, And I work in the military. The pay is even across the board because there is no negations allowed. It is mostly men, but then again, there aren't many female engineers.
That's a cross dresser walk sign.
In all seriousness, the trouser wearing original could easily be a woman too. Do people really get upset about this stuff?
@TheMightyImp, Nope. This is a rattlesnake article meant to genetate outrage and deligitimize those yearning for gender equality.
Or you could just assume any of them are female because most women wear pants most of the time so you can't tell just from a stick figure....
In other words, did you just assume their gender?!?
Here this is the Department of labor stats on equal pay on women in the workforce https://www.dol.gov/wb/resources/
The wage gap is a myth.
My co-worker started with less experience than me got paid more than me and had a smaller paycheck. Probably cuz she never once worked overtime and consistently went home early.
@stevepaige, this exact scenario is what disproves the wage gap. There’s not a wage gap, there’s an earnings gap. You can’t expect to make the same pay check as someone else for less hours put in.
Even the male sign leanes into his walk. Put forth equal effort and complain less.
Wage gap isn’t real.
Can't you just do the same work as men? Because that's already the law.... "equal pay for equal work"
I'm for equality! Get women working in plumbing, construction work, and working sewer lines! Jobs like these are dominated by men and i for one ahm against this patriarchy.... thots
Imagine thinking anecdotal evidence of women not working hard enough is enough to denounce years of research by women who have spent their life’s work trying to understand the wage gap.
@Sleeping Fish, The Earth is flat too. How could you denounce hundreds of YEARS of research and Flat-Earthers trying to figure out this fact?
If women were actually paid less, wouldn’t companies hire all women because it would cost less?
The wage gap is a myth. Bam! Your wish is granted.
Only after I can take 3 months off work when having a kid.
That’s actually Superman. So now women are more oppressed
@fallingback09, now they’re SUPER oppressed.
Also, it looks like Superman has to pee
@CaptainCrunchyCvnt, comical... am I right?
No. Take the traffic light, and like it.
Do better work...
Everyone gets paid the same when it’s minimum wage
So my senior at work is super sexist and has even admitted to it saying they will make a point in hiring a particular gender over the other. Just because she thinks women work harder than men.
No. That costs money
Ancedote time: i had a hiring event at my work the other day and pointed out how out of the 14 candidates for an entry level position only 3 were male (all were white) i am not making any ethical or moral statements about this but I did find it strange.
