Everyday we're fed ideas of people being paid unfairly due to their gender. That is, a woman with the same amount of work experience as a man working x job will be offered less than her male counterpart. Do you believe the studies that suggest this to be true based on YOUR experience. Or could it be a feminist ploy to to fuel their victim complex?

if we assume the discrimination hypostasis to be true, that would happen because companies would believe women are less productive - they would pay according to what they believe women produce

If they can pay women less, why don’t companies solely hire women?

Gender pay gap is one those things were it’s not always about paying woman less. It’s about choices the woman makes.

The companies pay based on the Education, experience, hours, Productivity. women earned less because they had children and had to put their career on hold whereas the men did not have to. Women with no children earn double than those who do.


The true answer for the wage gap is the choices of the women.
