A question I have for women who complain they aren’t paid the same as men.
We’ve been hearing about this a lot over the years. “Gender pay gap is real!” “There is a glass ceiling!” “White men make all the money!”

I’m just wondering, if you’re at a company that is supposedly not paying you a fair wage, why not go somewhere else? I want to see the clause in the employment contract that is forcing them to be an employee there. They obviously are making them stay there to work for “lower wages.” And then show me the clause in the Constitution that says you have a write to this job with the salary you deem to be fair.

tl;dr your salary is generally commensurate with your education, experience, and performance.

Gender pay gap has been proven false time and again. There are variables involved, and they are important ones. Feminists and socialist democrats insist on ignoring those facts.

Does anyone know what the source is for this claim? I hear people say it all the time but I've never seen the actual source study that concludes women make less than men. I want to know what methodology they used to come to this conclusion.

Did they compare all men and all women across all industry to determine that on average men make more?

Pretty much.

Take a hospital for instance. They average all the male employees (who tend to be doctors and administrators) and the female employees (some doctors, but most nurses and office workers) and say that men make more.

We need to do this. Hands across America, analyze the wages and salaries of every American and see what the data shows!

Ironically there are studies that indicate that urban young professional women out earn their male peers and that gap deminishes over time due to life choices i.e. having a kid. This makes sense, they are more educated and more mature versus male YUPIES.

Give us some evidence and the methodology to support the conclusion. I doubt it exists. If companies could pay woman 2/3 or 4/5 of what they pay men why would they ever hire men?

A better question is why are any of these women unemployed? If a business could pay a woman less to do the same job as a man why would they hire the man?

Business owners want to make money, they dont give a shite about "muh patriarchy".

Why do women wait around for a man to promote them and if they don't get the promotion then boss man is a sexist. Why don't chick's just start their own bank, invent something and sell it, take control of your work and start your own business.

This article links many of the studies, including the most recent Bolotnyy study that seeks to examine causes. In such study, they do isolate to the same job, find a $0.89/hour pay difference, but find it can be attributed to acceptance of overtime hours accepted by the males.

When controlling for occupation, experience, hours worked and other variables, there exists a 1- 5% gap in pay between women and men. I think it was a recent Stanford study that found an average difference of $.04 per $1.

The pay gap varies with age. For new college graduates, women actually make more than men, probably because they’re in higher demand as many companies face pressure to increase their number of female employees. So there’s an initial pay gap with women making more than men. Men and women reach parity in their 30’s and then the initial gap inverts with men surpassing women in their 40’s and 50’s.

From prageru and worth 5 minutes of your time. It kills the argument with logic and hard data.

If they don't take into account acceptance of the first offer then the conclusions are crap. Are men more prone to say no to the first offer? If this hasn't been studied then any research is garbage.

I would bet the average man is more aggressive with salary negotiation than the average woman.

So administrators, HR personnel, and headhunters everywhere are simply too dumb to exclusively hire women, and save themselves 1-5% in payroll?

No because the quality of one’s work is largely subjective.
