nocturnalThe wage gap is not a fact and is not proven, Just like how it's not true you think girls make 28% less than men. But if you feel like continuing to have this argument why don't you rebump the thread and I can continue to dismantle your arguments there, because we've already talked about this, and stop posting about this subject in a thread about climate change.
I didn't make that first post to argue about women I made that post to show it was ironic. Now go ahead and rebump that thread if you want to continue.
I can't even find that thread, so I'm going to post on here instead. :)
It's fucking proven right there on the fifth page.
I will quote it for you if you like.
"Finally, the gender differences in occupation and industry are subastantial and help to explain a considerable portion of the gender wage gap. Men are more likely to be in blue collar jobs and to work in moining, construction, or durable manufactoring; they are also more likely to be in unionized employment. Woman are more likely to be in clerical or professional jobs and to work in the service industry. Taken together these variables explain 53% of the gender wage gap-27% for occupation, 22% for industry, and an additional 4% for union status.
Although these findings suggest that gender differences in wor-related characteristics are important, they also indicate that qualifications are only part of the story. The proportion of the wage differntial that is not explained by these types of productiviity-related characteristics includes the impact of labor market discriminaton, although as mentioned avove, the residual may also include the effects of gender differences in unmeasuered productiivity levels or non-wage aspects of jobs. In this case 41% of the gender gap cannon be explained even then gender differences in education, expierance, industries, occupations and union status are taken into account. We can consider the reults of this study somewhat differently by focusing on the gender wage ratio. The actual (unadjusted) gender wage ratio is 80% of mens wages. If woman had the same human capital characteristics (that is education and expierance), racial composition, industry and occupational distrubution and union coverage as men the "adjusted" ratio would rise to 91% of men wages. Thus while measured characteristics are important, woman still earn less than similiar men even when all measured charactierics are taken into account.
The wage gap is fact. Woman are paid less, it's proven right fucking there. If you want to argue with a study done by Stanford then be my guest.
