    adjusted gender pay gap is still real somewher around 5%.
    the unadjusted pay gap is not claiming to proof that employers are unfair in their decisions about payment (even though that is what the adjusted pay gap suggests), it is meant to quantify the structural differences in the experiences of men and women in the work field.
    if everyone on either side of the discussion could stop misinterpreting this, that would be nice :)

    -Are you for equal pay?
    -The wage gap doesn't exist.
    -Then you are for equal pay, right?

    If I ever called this out I would risk being sacked from work. Example I work beside a female and we both started at the exact same time 5 years ago on same salary. She has had three children and been off for over 2 years of the 5. However. Due to policy she has had the exact same salary increase to ensure parity, to add insult to injury she has got a promotion because we need more female representation in senior management. Someone tell me that’s fair or equitable.

    I don’t agree, Joe. A CEO may have a really difficult job, but not 100,000x as hard as the minimum wage worker doing the real work.

    Men work more dangerous jobs and thus are most likely to die at work. . .women want equality and equal pay, so how about changing from pediatrician and geriatrics to telephone pole repair or cell tower technician - the people that actually climb those flipping tall cell towers to fix an electrical problem..
    Until women decide to choose jobs that are unsafe or change majors to some type of engineering degree, quit all y'all's *bitching* .. pun intended.
    Lastly I spent 8 years as a Combat Engineer in the U.S. Army.. up until about 2016 females were not allowed in combat engineer roles. Then the military allows for the first female 12 Bravo Combat Engineer, who's specific requirements is an explosives and demolitions expert. (you know, those people who place charges on a door to proceed to clear a building or those people demo a building for deconstruction?) Well, in 2016 one of the Army's first female combat engineer recruits was a deserter. . . My point, they'll bitch and bark about equality this and that, but when it comes down to it they won't follow through on any of it. The first female enlisted NCO to go through Army Ranger School quit during the first phase of training, but was allowed to come back and even recycle several times, something that has never happened in a course that is supposed to automatically disqualify those who “tap out.” But whereas men consistently were held to the strict standards outlined in the Ranger School’s Standing Operating Procedures handbook, those two women who just recently passed Ranger School in August were allowed lighter duties and exceptions to policy. ... So, we can start to see a pattern where the women want equality, but when it comes time to put your words into actions, they are never held to the same standards.

    The gap happens when a woman has a child. After that the husband typically continues to climb the ladder and women typically dont because the attention that a child requires and deserves. That is where the gap happens, not that they get paid less, it's that they do not end up on the same rung of the ladder as someone not having to care for a child that has been doing the same job for the same amount of time. I personally think it's a great tradeoff because I see caring for your own child as a very noble and badly needed job and I believe women are much better than men at that job.

    This is utterly bullshit: "Paramedic"
    Can you think of an occupation with higher pressure, more important, more on the line?
    Does this reflect their pay?
    Women tend to go for occupations that are actually important, rather than have previewed importance. And are willing to compromise their paycheck.
    Two men talking about men in men's way, with no understanding of the fact that the pillars of society rests on the back of women.

    This will come off rude from me but I’m dropping my opinion because I’m a keyboard warrior lmao. I work in a factory in a manual job there are 2 other woman that do the same job as me except I do the heavy lifting and more work and we all get the same wage in fact the one lady is on more money that me because she’s the supervisor but I also do her jobs as well . I’m not saying all woman can’t lift 25kg bags all day but if they can’t why are they in the job and why are they on the same money or more for doing less? It confuses me sometimes but hay ho we have a job it pays the bills just about we can’t really complain or can we?

    Sorry I disagree with the 'your Jobs worth what it's worth' Argument. A ceo doesnt do ALL the work, so his pay is always a result of negotiations and what we deem acceptable. Also a firefighter makes no money by putting out fire but we as society say his Job is worth to be paid. Why cant that be the case in other professions? If you let only the market decide, society will blow itself up, as we witness right now.

    Joe's at a higher level of economic "success" than most of us, but at the same time, Joe is critiquing the rest of us on our perspective of success. It's easy to have money and coment on others in a capitalistic society. I hope he realizes that he's becoming part of "it." Either way, he's had a good run.
    Plus, the wage gap is bs.

  • Wiggy

    The “why wouldn’t businesses hire more women if they’ll work for less?” trope holds no water.
    The rationale behind the gap is that women aren’t worth as much because they don’t work as hard/produce the same quality result/etc.
    While the gap is clearly not the result of “the patriarchy”, arguing it with that assertion is ineffective, at best.

    In my job, female co-workers are always asking me to move heavy things for them, grab things off top shelves, fix things, and perform tasks that they deem "men's work" despite the fact they have the exact same job title and same pay as me.
    The gender pay gap isn't nearly wide enough.

    The “wage gap” was outlawed in the 60s look at it this way in scotland the police can work 40 hours over three days and 30 over 4 women tend to work the 30 hour shift because of families men tend to work the 40.....both the same rates of pay just men tend to have less obligations like children living with the mother which is more common its a debunked “myth”

    In some cases yes, there may be gap
    Male Soccer players in the US make 150k a year
    Women Soccer players make 75k in the US a year
    even though Women soccer is relatively more famous than the men (here in the US) and women’s team win world cups and bring more revenue than the US Men’s soccer team. I think there is some truth to some extent but overall i dont believe there is any wage gap

      Tommy Brown They still don’t make enough in advertisements with viewership, jersey sales, and players can individually make money on sponsorship deals based off their popularity in the sport. Women’s soccer isn’t as developed as men’s soccer and it’s because men have been playing football in Europe for like 2000 years and national/club teams have basically been competing to perfect tactics and every aspect in the game. Women’s soccer has been around for less than 50 years and they have different capabilities than men. Stadiums overcharge tickets depending on the teams, tournament, cup, etc.

      @Eduardo Rodriguez I've been to games. Here in San Antonio more people go watch the Mexicans play than the USA. Not to mention women's games sell out in stadiums all the time. Maybe they should be promoting the successful gender more instead of acting like mens soccer has been good in the last ten years.

    • Eduardo Rodriguez
      Eduardo Rodriguez Month ago +1

      More people watch men soccer than women soccer. It’s just a reality. In the end, sports is entertainment. If you don’t reach the same amount of reach with audience, you won’t make much money. You can’t force equal pay if revenue is earned through viewership.

    The more they whine, the more companies automate or move overseas to get rid of the whiners. They're just shooting themselves in the foot. Pretty soon we will all be equal at a $0 wage. The future for smart Americans, understanding the inevitable future, is to give up on the old worker worker mentality, and shift to becoming businesses with a work force overseas. We are not going to compete with people who will work for less. The dummies will hang on to the old ways, resisting what is inevitable, and they will die with them. Adapt or die off. Natural selection at work.

    I feel like the life expectancy gap, the career life threatening gap, and the gap of men behind bars needs to be worked on first! The problem is guys dont matter and helping those issues would indirectly help the male wage gap more then the womens wage gap. So i guess lets stay in the bubble instead!

    Ok so Joe's point in this video is that women choose lower paying jobs than men and as a result are payed less, fair point but speaking from what I know in my field the average male chemistry graduate earns approximately 100000$ per year while the average female chemistry graduate earns an average of 77700$ according to the American chemical society, this is taking into account that both work full time and had been working in their current job for at least a year so to say that there isn't any disparity based on gender is pretty misleading.

    • Ebenezer
      Ebenezer Month ago

      That doesn't prove they're paid less for being women - I assume that is illegal in your country.
      Women are less competitive. Women tend to take less risks with job hunting - they're much less likely to apply to jobs where they don't meet all the requirements than men, they're less likely to relocate, they're less likely to negotiate/walk away from an offer that doesn't meet their expectations.

    Well you sure kicked the hell out of that strawman. Now ask yourselves, do women just have a tendency to choose lower paying jobs or are female dominated professions less valued precisely because they're female dominated? Take your time.

    • Ebenezer
      Ebenezer Month ago

      Do you have any evidence of that? Lots of professions used to be male dominated but are now balanced/female dominated so if what you say is true there should be plenty of data to support your claim.

    I'm a software programmer. I make a salary above the average income. Sometimes I go to Subway for lunch. The person making my sandwich is a female, and she is making $7.25... There is your wage gap... When I take my car to the shop, a male mechanic is working on it. He makes maybe $15-$20 an hour + commission. A subway lady is still making $7.25.... there is your wage gap. Get yourselves better jobs ladies!!

    There is a video circling of the Australian senate questioning the woman who did the pay gap research about it and she is constantly asked "did U take into account the difference in hours worked" (referring to ot, to which her only reply is "we annualised the income of part time employees" (didn't take OT into consideration) she was also asked "is this determined from an hourly rate?" Her reply "no, annual income" so the report included OT pay but not OT hours determining that men who work OT earn more than a woman in the same job who doesn't work OT....
