    What I was going to say was a lot meaner, and funnier, and probably didn't belong in CDZ. This is mean I know, but you really have nothing better? You can't even account for the 6.6 mysterious actual wage gap you should argue on? Again the response I'm holding myself from is way better

    I've often wondered why, if women are paid less, they aren't suing in large numbers. It is against the law.

    In addition to the "choices" part of any EARNINGS gap, the studies citing a 20+% gap generally are looking at aggregate numbers of all men vs all women. They don't take into consideration that there are more men working and that men average more hours per week.

    It really is amazing that this myth refuses to die.

    still nothing but diversion?

    capitalism is all about the bottom line. this is a direct rebuttal to your argument.

    Capitalists do hire more women and hire them more cheaply.

    But why bother hiring men? You'd have to pay them 30% more.

    You realize that that there is no 70cents to the dollar wage gap? That is a made up number taken from the mean salary of men vs mean salary of women. All of it because of different choices men make career wise vs women. Women heavily dominant lower playing careers like childhood education, social work, etc. While men dominate most of the higher paying careers, these are career choices. On top of that Men more likely to work in under served areas paying higher, as well as work longer hours with short notice vs women. Men also do not drop out of the work force for long periods of time when they decide to have children. These are all individual choices that are creating the misleading number that women are payed 30% less for the same job. Its just not true, the people pushing line know this, but they're banking on getting that emotional response out of you.

    because it would raise the price of women's labor. It is about the bottom line.

    /---- equal pay is the law the land since 1965. If the women you speak of are too timid to speak up why don't you contact The Gubmint and file a complaint for them? Chop chop
