Mmmm… I can almost taste that equality….
You know. Almost .
OH MY JESUS CHRIST ALRMIGHT Y IN THE SKY IT IS TO SHOW HOW IT IS UNFAIR THAT WOMEN GET PAID AOBUT 75 CENTS FOR EVERY DOLLAR A MAN EARNS THATS WHY JFUCKING FUCK
The point went soaring, gracefully, like a bird, right over the OP’s head.
The fact that the wage gap isn’t even a real thing is what truly makes it funny.
Yes because clearly it doesn’t exist. *rolls eyes*
Also read this:
Gender Pay Gap (wikipedia page).
Uhm. Excuse me, but, on average women choose lower paying jobs than men, the data is not centralized on comparing job to job as it should be, it’s an overall year by year look at it, and that’s incomplete data. Here’s a few interesting articles that can spell it out more articulately than me.
All in all this “wage gap” is caused by women failing to go for a higher paying profession, while their male peers enter that profession
While that is a valid point, there is still a wage gap in many identical jobs.
Here are some specifics for identical jobs. This took me minutes to find.
Lawyers: Women made 79.6% of men’s Salaries.
GODDAMN IT IT’S NOT ALWAYS ABOUT CHOICE
How about stronger societal pressures to raise children?
Or a society that doesn’t allow women to CHOOSE whether or not they get pregnant/give birth, then doesn’t support them after they have?
Or a society that discourages women from being good at math and science, i.e. higher-earning careers?
Or a society that devalues careers that women are supposedly naturally inclined to?
Fuck that noise, it’s not always about choice. And even when it appears to be, there’s implicit societal pressures.
