idk if anyone’s made this rebloggable yet but i sure as hell needed it on my blog
Most of the rest are legitimate concerns though.
1. Your articles brought up the point that women go into occupations that are paid less than the ones men choose. This is patently false. These occupations are paid less because they are taken up by women. This is an entirely separate issue from equal pay for equal work. Regardless, blaming selection bias still leads to a 10-15% wage gap.
2. Even when controlling for selection bias due to occupation and number of hours worked, there’s still a significant gap of anywhere between thirteen to FORTY-FOUR PERCENT depending on occupation between women and men doing the same work with the same qualifications.
fef this reply is turnin me on
Oh hey look at how the shit I talk about is easily backed up by a lot of hard data. ISN’T THAT NEAT.
Just wanted to say this about the wage gap: I’m in a doctoral-level profession that’s been slowly turning from all-male (1950s) to majority-female (about 60:40 women:men at present) and had a professor who hated, loathed, and despised female students because he believed the influx of women into the profession had led to a decrease in wages and prestige over the last 40 years.
There’s also a problem with a glass ceiling and the fact that some companies will give men higher wages than women for the same job, with the same experience (or, in some cases, give men more money with less experience.) A major lawsuit involving a major employer not long ago showed that 9/10 of their management (and more in upper management) was male because of preferential promotion.
Case and point: I’ve been with my company for 3.5 years and in my current position for over 2 years. I am *still* making less than the MAN who held the job before me (I do the accounting so I know), yet he wasn’t even with the company 3 full years. And it has nothing to do with the quality of my work because I have consistently received stellar reviews since I started this job.
