In America, is the gender wage gap legitimately real?Posted by: Almantino
Do you believe the studies that claim they take factors instead of just generally averaging American women's and American men's wages and comparing the two? Do you believe them? Do you just think it's a load of bull and that feminists advocating against this supposed wage gap are just doing so to fuel their victim complex?
Although the 23% wage gap is dishonest because it does not compare the same jobs. There still remains a 5 - 8% wage gap when we look at women's pay in the same position with roughly the same background and experience. 8% from the washington post - https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/whats-the-real-gender-pay-gap/2016/04/24/314a90ee-08a1-11e6-bdcb-0133da18418d_story.html?utm_term=.1d7c5c4913c5 7% from payscale - http://www.payscale.com/data-packages/gender-pay-gap 5.4% from Glassdoor - https://www.glassdoor.com/research/demystifying-the-gender-pay-gap/
There are many factors to the gender pay gap that people tend to not consider. Many people don't realize that woman tend to take jobs that over all pay less. They also tend to take less hours per week. If you include these factors, The wage gap is 99 cents to a dollar. No perfect but still way better than everyone says.
The gender pay gap is not real because they don't actually compare real facts, or include all of the details
No, the gender wage gap is created by calculating the average sallary of females and males WITHOUT accounting for hours worked, diffrence in job, diffrence in ranking, days taken off, or any other things. putting it simply, women tend to go into jobs like nursing and arts (tend, not have to) and men usually go into science and math fields. nursing/arts pay <science/math pay.
I think types of jobs need to be taken into consideration and the overall amount of either gender in the workforce. If an employer isn't paying you the same wage as a male would earn, you can legally sue for discrimination. Men just happen to have higher ranks in the workforce and therefore make more money making the ratio more in favor of the male dominated workforce. So no it isn't as real as many want to believe
The wage gap compares earnings instead of wages. Feminists took this as wages, despite working at leftist Buzzfeed or Vox, or Huffington Post, or Washington post, or CNN, or NBC.
In the event that an employer systematically bases the pay of their employees on their gender, they are committing a crime and there are legal systems in place to deal with the issue- that is probably a large factor of the reasons why businesses DON'T DO IT. (Obviously, there can be exceptions which CAN BE DEALT WITH) This, however, doesn't mean there isn't an EARNINGS GAP, which is a completely different issue altogether.
If women were actually paid less, Why aren't there an overabundance of jobs for women? It would be cheaper for employers. Also, Women work in lower paying and less risk jobs than men. For more information, Go here: https://www. Prageru. Com/video/there-is-no-gender-wage-gap/
