Equal pay-day represents the day that women must work till in order to earn as much as men earn.
While the left promotes and supports equal results instead of equal rights, let’s expose a few gender myths. Women are no longer a minority group. Since the 1980s females make up a majority of voters. In 2012, 53% of the votes cast were from women – most of them voting for Barack Obama. In the 1980s the majority of college degrees in all categories went to women, and in 2009 women earned 57% of all bachelor’s degrees.
James Chung of Reach Advisers spent a year studying the data. According to an analysis of 2000 communities in 147 out of 150 of the biggest cities in the United States, the median full-time salaries of young women are 8% higher than those of the men in their perspective group. In Atlanta and Memphis, women are making 20% more than men. In New York, Los Angeles, and San Diego it’s between 15 and 17% more than their male peers. In places like Raleigh Durham North Carolina, women earn 14% more; Jacksonville Florida, women earn 6% more than men. Why do women want you to believe that there is a gender wage gap? Because victim-hood equals virtue in today’s social justice culture.
Feminists often claim that women are not as good as men negotiating for wage increases and promotions, which is entirely false. Claudia Goldin says that women have just as much bargaining power and can negotiate just as well as men. The difference in aggregate outcome can be attributed to the hours that men work and the decisions that women make concerning their work-life balance. Claudia opposes the notion of a gender wage gap.
Anthony Carnevale, a research professor and director of the Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce, says that women choose lower paying jobs, usually as a result of college degree decisions that will inevitably lead to lower wages in the aggregate. But once again, the left wants equal outcomes instead of equal opportunities. They believe that someone with a major in gender studies should be paid the same as someone with a degree in business, regardless of the economic contribution of their efforts.
At the end of the day, the numbers do not lie. The Bureau of Labor Statistics has already disproved the claim made by Hillary Clinton and other feminist leaders that women make $0.77 to a man’s dollar. The whole argument is baseless and promotes a generation of women who tout social justice pitchforks for no good reason at all, except to vilify all working men in the United States, a country that has laws to prosecute against the very inequality that feminists claim exists in the workforce today: Affirmative Action and the Equal Pay Act of 1963.
The conclusion: all men are misogynists because of that thing between their legs.
