    Yes, let's just ignore the education, experience, career choice and all of factors except for gender. And don't bullshit us, this kind of discrimination is illegal and is not happening. Men recieve harsher proson sentences for the same crimes, are less likelly to recieve help in life threatening situations or financial aid, more likelly to be assulted, are underpaid by google and discriminated against, portrayed as idiots in tv, ridiculed, demonized shamed for their gender and always assumed to be inherently sexist. The gender wage gap is nonexistent, just like an real arguments for it and this guy's self rescept.

    While the adjusted pay gap is considerably smaller in all countries studied, it can still make a significant difference over time. For example, in the U.S., where the adjusted gap is 4.9 per cent and the average annual salary reported on Glassdoor is $55,450, women stand to lose more than $81,000 over a 30-year working life - more than a full year of salary. globalnews.ca/news/5097399/gender-pay-gap-2019-canada-glassdoor/ . So you make 81K more just because you have a penis?! Eat dirt.

    Sex and gender are different, and nonbinary genders have existed forever.

    At a whopping 0.6% of the population. If it makes you feel better we're talking exclusively about the 99% who identify as one of the binary ones, so gender would still be correct here, especially considering the idea that the supposed wage gap he's talking about would apply to trans men and women too, and using the term "sex" would exclude them.

    its true, there really is no pay gap its just irresponsible bitche's bitching to get = outcome NOT = pay which means they want superior pay. women are never willing to work as much as men are ALWAY'S Willing to put in more work, also that commercial was fucking retarded. and The Factual Feminist seems to agree. brreporter.com/v/video-bWJxUSdeZDw.html

    One of the reasons that woman don't get paid more is because they settle for minimum pay whereas men are more likely to demand more while getting hired. Everyone should know their skill's worth.

    Ultimately there is the issue of equal pay and the issue of the wage gap. Two completely separate issues that somehow got conflated and smashed into one issue making the whole debate nonsensical and pointless. Equal pay is a significantly smaller problem than the wage gap. And the wage gap doesn't account for things like: experience, education, career choice, regions, employment rate, maternity/paternity leave, etc. It takes none of these variables into consideration and so the debate has been taken in a very pointless direction.

    I am a little confused..so..if a position is offered for $15.00 an hour, do they tell women "Of course the $15.00 offered was for men..you get 77% of that!"...If you work 33 hours and I work 40 , it stands to reason I am going to make more money..... I am told this is a myth based on total take home amounts and that women prioritize work time differently because of issues out side of the workplace and therefore earn less because they don't put as much time into the job...as I said I have been told this is what is going on, I haven't put much thought into it because frankly, like I said..any job I have had the men and women were paid an hourly rate..and received the same starting pay and got raises with the same frequency..

    Say we are working in IT and, a programmer, would have a masters degree in computer science and thus get paid a lot of money to program. Then we have a woman who did a basic course on programming and works the same hours as I. say the man gets paid $4000 per month, and the women get's paid $2000 per month. How is that unfair?, As the man would be higher educated and thus has more experience.

    I have been to Holland and I have to say I loved the country. If you are considering coming to the US I would like to know your motivation for doing so. The US can be a harsh and unforgiving place economically for those who are not skilled or willing to endure hardship of discomfort. For Europeans who have low value skills and education and want to remain in those occupations I would suggest staying put. The US is a very difficult place for people in certain occupations. However if you have a University degree or a high value added skill and are willing to work hard prosperity is much easier to accomplish. Generally speaking, Americans expect less from government than most Europeans. Americans don't feel it is governments responsibility to insure the success of every resident. It is each persons responsibility to take care of themselves and they family without the governments help. If a person struggles economically there is little help from the government compared to European countries. I don't what you to be scared and think that America is all doom and gloom. America has some really great things about it as well. I wish there was a way to send you a private message to talk about it more.

    My apologies for the harshness of my statement. I didn't realize you were speaking hypothetically. FYI, in the US the national minimum wage is only $7.25 however this is not a livable wage anywhere in the nation. The cost of living here varies dramatically depending on where you live. The most populous cities are the most expensive and have higher minimum wage laws. The highest minimum wage in the US is Seattle Tacoma area. Employers there have to pay a minimum of $16/hr even though this is not nearly enough to live in the city. I feel like America is plagued with older people who have gotten theirs and want to deny younger workers opportunity.

    @I Ya because your arguments hold no water. Statistically, the gender pay gap is disproven. You have to ignore lots and lots of matrix to try to "prove" a false gap. You deny education choice, family choice, workload choice, negotiation for pay choice, risk of career choice, job type, hours worked by choice, education choice, education level choice and degree choice, the gap in career to have kids choice, and on and on and on. the gender pay gap is comprised of choices made, not discrimination by gender. but again. nice try. Everyone is a victim somewhere in the liberal mind.

    Snappingturtle 26711 dias atrás

    @I Ya you totally ignore the fact that we have a free market. if a woman doesn't like what she is offered or currently paid, she can negotiate more, or move somewhere that is willing to pay her more. it's no different than a star athlete. if they hold out for more money, and a team refuses to pay them more, they run the risk of leaving and maybe they get another team to hire them, maybe they sit the season out. in a free market, you choose to work where you work. you accept the pay, or you leave. so there is no gender pay gap that was not mutually accepted by both parties. Women can not negotiate their pay, choose to work at a company, and then complain they are underpaid when they accepted the pay rate. Nothing you are saying holds any water, but keep trying. lol.

    Men work more and you get a higher marginal wage for your 50th work hour than your 40th. It's 1st year undergraduate economics... This can easily explain the 5 percent or less remaining after controlling for private sector, job type etc. Also the fact that women take parental leave more often than men simply makes them less attractive employees - hence the bias in hiring.

    Hey John..... When it comes to matters like this. There is something is being overlooked and I am getting tired of bring attention to it. How come few people fail to discuss that males are slowly being phased out of the workforce. This is more noticeable in Professions then that Trades. There is another matter that needs to be discussed. That is the amount of males being discriminated in our current workplace. In Canada, there is no court case where males are facing discrimination based on their gender. Try being a male working in the following professions Human Resources, Legal Support (Paralegals) Nurses (Private Clinics) Clerical (Secretary) Male participation in these profession(s) is trivial!

    Equal pay for being equally valuable to your employer. I don't know too many men who saddled a company with their maternity leave, or caused their health insurance costs to explode. It doesn't matter if raising children isn't a woman's fault, it's even less their employers fault.

  95. Crowley9

    Saying the wage gap is due to women going into lower paying fields of work on average is not an answer. It just means the real question we should be asking is, "Why are female-dominant fields (on average) so much lower-paying?" Looking into history, there is an unsettling trend that whenever the gender balance in a field shifts, it corresponds to a shift in pay and prestige that field enjoys, and it is always to the benefit of men. Veterinarians used to be predominantly male. Computer programmers used to be predominantly female. Looking at all this I find it difficult to escape the conclusion that we live in a society which structurally screws women over. Some people say that men and women are just into different things, and why shouldn't we allow people to freely choose what work they want to do? To that as far as I know there is zero scientific evidence that such preferences are based on some kind of innate biological differences and not shaped by social factors. If a girl is raised by parents and taught by teachers who think science and technology is for boys, that is going to influence the child's choices, even if it is unintentional. The ideas for what is fitting work for women have also changed through history. I personally find incredibly arrogant the implicit assumption that we currently live in some kind of ideal society which does not apply any kind of social pressure that could push people away from their interests. Finally, there is still a wage gap between men and women doing the same work, though it is much smaller, around 3-5 %. One explanation I often see proposed is that men tend to be more aggressive in negotiating for raises. But, there are also studies which indicate when women apply the same kind of aggressive negotiation as men, it actually has a negative effect on the outcome for them.

    Part of this should be solved by forcing employers to reveal everybody’s salaries. That way, at the very least, you know when you’re being completely screwed over. A friend of mine found out she had 1.5x workload and success and wasn’t making as much as the top dudes...she complained and then left. Luckily, being an insanely successful corporate lawyer, she moved to a way higher position at a similar bank. Balls of steel.

    Or she could've negotiated her pay increase just as her male colleagues did. Also common sense tells you that if a large corporation can save 30% every month by hiring females then wouldnt it make sense for them to only hire women and make a 30% profit per head? If a Silicon valley company pays a total 1 billion in salaries for their staff then by hiring women only or mostly women they get an additional 300 million in profits!!! Fact of the matter is, there isnt a pay gap but a gender workplace hours gap. Men work more hours and don't take a year or 2 out of the workforce to give birth and nurture a child which for most women and the baby is more important than her salary. It is illegal by law to pay women a lower hourly rate than men.

    It is illegal to pay women less than men. It is undeniable that women on average work less than men and take more days off. Should women get paid the same for doing less work?

    I'm a woman, I'm a software engineer, and I don't do "less" work. I mean really, where the fuck is the line for women to do less work? Because if anything I had to do more work. In addition to my undergrad and masters degrees, I have to spend the rest of my fucking time re-convincing people that I am indeed qualified to hold the positions that I do because they are gender bias. Your comment is moronic.

    The Jennifer-John example is so flawed. They are gonna favour men b/c they know Jennifer might take time off during pregnancy. That’s just a reasonable assumption. Women have kids. If she is taking a year and a half off with pay, where as John can be atche office working everyday, no shit John is gonna get picked

    The wage gap is simply the average earning of men and women working full time. It does not count for different job positions, hours worked, or different jobs. It has nothing to do with the same job. It has nothing to do with discrimination.

    What is your point? If a male office worker gets paid more then a female office worker simply on the merit of having a penis then that's discrimination

    4:43 Women earn $1.08 on average to every male dollar. Women after college earn on average 2% more. Why isn't there a huge movement about this(these) wage gap(s)? Let's go completely communist and get everyone the same pay for every job, no matter how detailed or straining.

    I'm not at all saying that the pay gap isn't there, but he didn't actually address women making different career choices. Teachers and nurses are predominantly female, while stem feilds and engeneering are prodomidantly male. Those are very different career paths and don't have to do with gender bias in hiring. Not at all disagreeing with his point, but I feel that if you bring something up, you should actually address it. I wouldn't be surprised if there is an actual argument against what I'm saying, but I didn't hear it in this video.

Barrack obama: women are only worth 77% of a man Way to go john (sarcasm), you tell those women how you think they're only worth three quarters of a man.

    John, I'm extremely disappointed in how you represented this, and it leads me to question your intentions, considering the gender wage gap has been all but dismissed. Do your research people. If I work 8 hours less, am I entitled to the same pay as someone who works 8 hours more? No, I'm not.

    Here is a question.. please enlighten me. If a company can legally pay people less for the same experience, time on the job, and same hours.. why is not every single employee female? I know if I was running a business, didn't care about paying people fairly, I'd have nothing but female employees so I could save that money...
