The Gender Pay Gap

Recommended Posts

Yes.  Even in professions with a very high percentage of women (teaching, nursing, social work, etc.) the administrative positions are more often held by males.  

The $$ are significantly higher for those positions.

I have no idea what the point of this thread is. 

 

That being said, Bravo to Gillette! About time men start stepping up and taking some responsibility for how women have been treated. 

 

No more right wing BS and crying over lost "manhood". Just go the **** away.

I didnt get it either.  I guess creating an argument in favour of men?  

I love the pushback on the Gillette ad.  Like people actually getting mad over a message towards men to not be dicks.  My favourite is now people saying its fine but should not be aimed at men only, but should also be aimed at women.  Because of all the powerful women sexually harassing men I guess.  

A lot of very defensive reactions...

I find this Gilette stuff hilarious....  post a sappy lame video about Men needing to be men.......   yet Proctor & Gamble have been charging the pink tax for years   (i.e. selling the exact same razors at a higher price for ladies).     

They should stick to selling razors and stop trying to hard.  The video is barf worthy.

As per gender pay gap it's been proven already that it does not exist.      I don't even know why it's even a discussion anymore?    

 

Contrary to the research, of course, you have determined this.

The Gender pay gap certainly exists but.. Im not convinced its as big as some think. I think its 100 percent based on the jobs ppl choose to do. 

Exactly,  not to mention it's usually women who are more likely to take maternity leave and/or stay at home with the children for which those reports factor in.   

For myself I'm in IT...  when I went to school and through out my work life it's been 90% male.  That being said the female that works with me makes the exact same pay as what I do and receives the same increments and benefits.  

Now my wife who is in an administrative world who works with a tonne of admins is the opposite with 90% of them being female.  That being said the males at her work make the exact same pay.  

Now some people might point out that the world has way more CEO's that are male and high level executives and just maybe it's because the scientific nature of a male may just be better then a female.   Do you not think that any private company would choose a person based on potential profits over gender preference?  In this day and age hell no.  Now days its so cut throat that they don't give a crap who they hire/fire as long as the big companies can squeeze some extra profits.  

Another area is athletes...  the reason that LeBron makes a bazillion dollars and ladies in the WNBA make peanuts is because their is no interest and they do not generate that kind of profits.   I like the example of Ronda Rousey when she was in the UFC she was making near 10 million per fight when she was on top which exceeds nearly everyone on the roster...  they pay based on what the person can bring back to the company. 

In this day I don't consider gender pay an issue,   I'd think the much bigger and relevant issue would be how big companies use places like China and India and force employees of both genders to work in poor conditions for such terrible low salaries.

In order to be 100% convinced about that, you would need to know whether there are female applicants for those jobs. In the fields I was referring to, there are.

When you use the most extreme examples, you can definitely make the issue sound irrelevant.
