First off I'd like to say that this is a debate ment for the "wage-gap" between men and women and why it doesn't or does exist.

Anywho, I'd like to point my first argument towards the idea that woman get payed less money then men all together. A lot of people fail to realize that this is a capitalist economy and that people in different jobs get payed different amounts of money. Statistically speaking, men tend to take more high-risk jobs (which often do pay more then the jobs that a lot of women take).

Secondly, the idea of women working is still a fairly new thing and compared to the amount of men in the country, there are still quite a few women who are stay-at-home.

Thirdly, women who come out of collage, are single and have no kids are most likely going to make the same amount of, if not more money then men.

If you really look at the charts and statistics, you will see that there is actually a reverse wage gap. On average women make around 8% more than men in the top fifty cities in the United States.

Back to you.
