Modern third wave feminists and leftists have convinced that the wage gap between genders exist. The belief states that for every dollar a man makes in a job, for the exact same job, the woman would make around 66 cents, based on an average made across the United States.
Firstly, the way the data is obtained is extremely flawed. An average then used to compare specific jobs around the world, which doesn't take into account occupation, hours worked, position, and choices each gender makes. The gap between the wages is, in reality, a broad brush calculation across a large demographic.
Secondly, the mere prospect of having men paid more than women in it self is a logical fallacy. If companies could pay women less than males for the same job, companies could gain a gigantic market advantage over competitors spending less on wages for women.
