There is still a very small gender pay gap which could be eliminated by giving women wage negotiation courses. When it comes to being paid, women are more likely to settle for a lower wage and avoid the confrontation and negotiation. However it's everyone's choice to maximize their income. If one settles for less, we can't force them to take courses on how to successfully to demand more.
The problem with making the best with what life gives you is that life doesn’t give equally to everyone. Some racial groups get less on average than other groups. Just because a law is repealed doesn't mean that the effects of that law are magically nullified. Clearly someone whose grandparents were legally discriminated against will on average have a tougher life than someone whose grandparents were treated as normal citizens. Saying otherwise is either ignorant or disingenuous.
Well read the statistics (not above)... usa doing a lot of illegal shit
I dont really look at USA stats because I'm Canadian and it doesn't effect me. but maybe I'll check them out
So if a white guy was a nurse ans a white girl was a nurse, he doesn't make more than her although theyre the same race?
Nope. The reason feminists say there's a pay gap is because they don't understand what it's based on. It has to do with career choices men and women make. Men tend to go for jobs that are tougher thus have higher wages. Women prefer lightweight jobs that pay less. There could be a tiny gap which is caused by men being more willing to negotiate by asking for a higher salary. Women often go with the original offer.
Thats not what the pay gap is about. If both were working the same job... say nurse or business job... if theybboth had same degree and years of experience, he still gets paid more
A male or female business person earns more than a male or female nurse because business tends to be a higher wage career field.
I knew u wouldn't get that right. i said OR not AND. In other words, a male nurse with same degree/experience as a female nurse still makes more than her
No i get thre differences in career. But a lot of stuff is based off the race. Go look. there's a minimum set
I just looked it up and there was a study by payscale, white collar workers, controlled study, same job and everything. They made 99% compared to white guy 100%. That's 99k vs 100k, Asians made 102%. So 102k. Honestly that's not that large of a gap, unless I'm missing something.
Why does it have to be a gap at all? Its messed up
Yeah I understand, they said white people are 25% more likely to ask for a raise though. They are also More likely to take seniority positions. A lot of the pay gap isn't really race, it's just years of experience. The old white guy who's been working their 10 years is gonna make more than the new black guy who's been working there 2 years. So in that sense yes there's a wage gap.That's what I've been getting out of reading up on it. Like I don't wanna come out as an asshole lol but yeah. I think it might phase out in the future.
But I've seen where a guy and girl couldHave the sameDegree/position/experience and still the guy would make more if a diff gender or race
ya they had that controller set up where all variables are the same and it was 99% to 100%, it was a male only study however so I can't comment on women, but that's not that far of a gap.
I think i understand
I agree bt its everywhere on the internet and irks me when im trying to find where i want to move to because its listed in the demographics
They def exist. People can have the same position/degree/experience and still make $10-30k diff. It usually stands as Asians making the most then white people then black then hispanic
The degrees/position are the same but the genetics aren't. The asians/whites get paid more because they do better and they do better because their DNA makes them more intelligent than the other races.The pay is a measure of intelligence.
@DizzyDesii sorry for the follow request, i was attempting to follow this question, not you. Please disregard, and again very sorry.
MYTH 5: Women earn 77 cents for every dollar a man earns—for doing the same work.FACTS: No matter how many times this wage gap claim is decisively refuted by economists, it always comes back. The bottom line: the 23-cent gender pay gap is simply the difference between the average earnings of all men and women working full-time. It does not account for differences in occupations, positions, education, job tenure or hours worked per week. When such relevant factors are considered, the wage gap narrows to the point of vanishing.Wage gap activists say women with identical backgrounds and jobs as men still earn less. But they always fail to take into account critical variables. Activist groups like the National Organization for Women have a fallback position: that women’s education and career choices are not truly free—they are driven by powerful sexist stereotypes. In this view, women’s tendency to retreat from the workplace to raise children or to enter fields like early childhood education and psychology, rather than better paying professions like petroleum engineering, is evidence of continued social coercion. Here is the problem: American women are among the best informed and most self-determining human beings in the world. To say that they are manipulated into their life choices by forces beyond their control is divorced from reality and demeaning, to boot.time.com/3222543/wage-pay-gap-myth-feminism/
*slowly walks away in disappointment because gender pay gay is not 100% it*
Dizzydesi can u please tell whether I look good or bad?
I read it as gap which is odd cos now i read it and see what you put lol
I agree. I used to wanna be the exec assistant cause i didn't wanna be in the spotlight but i wanted to do the work for the ceo lol
How about you bust your ass and become a corporate CEO yourself?
Yea like i was kinda excited about moving to NC but that gap makin it look like i should just stay here
Lmao u sayin they could be savin money
I’m saying if they could actually get away with paying them less for the same work then they would, your paid what ur worth if people earn less there’s a reason
I reallyyyyy tried to keep scrolling past this and mind my business, but old habits die hard. Don't forget to include yourself in that worshipping part there mate.
@CHARismatic110 Nah, that's okay. I'm not much interested in white women these days. I think I'm learning to see the truth about things.
If that's true, then I just hope it didn't take something bad for it to happen.
@CHARismatic110 It didn't, no. Although I did have a few bad experiences with white women on my old job, but none of that was the reason. What happened is that I got a lot more exposure to them over the last some years and I've found that I don't like the kind of thinking and attitudes a lot of them have. I began to see that deep down many white women are not really real or honest, especially priveleged ones. And many of them act like arrogant, stuck up bitches because they know the world glorifies them, and they know they can get away with a lot of shit for being a white woman. So I came to a place of realizing that I can't be apart of that anymore. All that unfairness and glorification began to sicken me.Of course "not ALL" white women are like that but there are enough who are, and that's enough to make me take a step back and be careful.Not sure if you did, but you might want to read an old Take I wrote months back called 7 Things I Honestly Dislike About White Women.
Ahh, gotcha. I'm not sure if I did or not. I'll see.
That pic was an example. But yes. Just look up statistics in cities youd consider moving too
Oh I thought you meant the women wage gap myth.There are reasons for this though.Men get less high paying degrees, or got to college less than women altogether now.I would say some black, and most Hispanics are too poverty stricken to attend the college to get the degree to get the job.I would say Hispanics are misfortuned to be here illegally will not for the majority of them enjoy stable employment or education. This is part their fault but more the u. s goverments fault.
I've seen people of diff races wirh same degree and same experience but they all still got paid a couple thousands apart
And iv seen white men and in some cases just men period sidlined to fit a diverse quota at a job. All in the name of ,, equality,, which has its own evil.
We love you either way, we just ignored the error. 😎
Did you edit the question? Cuz I could've sworn it said pay gay before lol
I guess GAG did
Ah, they should've left it alone, would've been funnier
