    If companies that only care about their bottom line, have been getting away with paying women 70 cents on the dollar, then why don't all companies just higher women since they can pay them 70% less?

    Women simply don't go after the high paying degrees, aint innovators and don't put in the years to become as respected. The idea that businesses need to be forced by the government to pay someone less experienced, has no innovations to make profit off of and doesn't have the same level of education is pure idiocy.

    Outside of they don't go for the high paying degrees, I disagree with you. And can't help but think it's a far cry of things you have previously posted...honestly kind of sexist, as much as I can't believe I'm saying that.

    I agree with the last part, I disagree with the first part. Women are certainly capable of going after higher paying degrees, innovation and putting in the years to build respect.

    The mythical "wage gap" is calculated without regard for the choices women make. Not all women are the same but many women tend to choose taking off time to raise families instead of pursuing professional ambitions. Women also have more health-related issues which require time off. Things such as this will naturally skew "average rate of pay" over time, and the progressive left exploits this statistic to support a false claim.

    In a good number of industries, women are actually paid better than men and are more sought after. Of course, this doesn't support the progressive narrative so let's ignore it.

    Well, it turns out that that men dominate 4 out of the 5 highest paying degrees while women dominate dominate 4 out of the 5 lowest paying degrees.

    Sometimes small businesses have a difficult time hiring women (or men who can't do this or that).

    Some DO hire mostly women. We have a love / hate relationship with maternity leave and a lower desired ceiling on average. But the gap is closing as parenting becomes more team work.

    ************

    Expanding on that. Sometimes small businesses just CAN'T hire 99% of women to do a job. Consider, I might have an opening for a fellow who can use a computer, be a back up salesperson and do some warehouse type work moving or loading mattresses and furniture.

    Darn it, old guys and most women just can't do part of the job so a good percentage of the population is disqualified. :(

    **************

    That said, if a gal can really do the job you better pay her equally.

    Again, this is not a matter of opportunity but a matter of personal choices.
