Anti-feminized.... It's a post trying to get women to stop being like "OMG MEN GET PAID MORE IN THE WORK FORCE, WHAT'S THE POINT OF GETTING A JOB AND SUPPORTING MY FAMILY!?"


Also, go on Tumblr. You'll find plenty feminist posts and man-haters on there.

If woman truly made less than men, with the same job, same hours, etc., then employers would hire nobody BUT women because they get the same work done for less cash from the business.

I can understand where you're coming from, but many employers don't have that mindset.

It's not a conscious thing. Most people aren't so cold as to hire women because they want to increase their profit margin, they just perceive women as being inferior workers and assign them a lower salary. They've shown that even people who are vehemently for equal pay still assign lower wages to women because of social norms.

Numerous studies have shown this. For example, when many orchestra's switched to a blind hiring process, where an applicant would play a piece of music and the quality of the music was all the employer had to go on, the number of women hired more than doubled.

It's difficult to address to actual root issue because it's ingrained in society's subconscious, so instead we try to pass laws to dampen the results. I ask that you please take this into consideration, or read the studies and formulate your own opinions, but please do be open minded.

Source:
www.nber.org/papers/w5903 - A report from the National Bureau of Economic Research (not a government entity) that specifically covers the concept of hiring people based solely on their skill rather than any perceived image of that person. It's from the 90's though, so I imagine the numbers may be off, but the concept remains solid and proven.

That's causal oversimplification. That study only supports the notion that women aren't hired solely on their performance level, but on other criterion as well, such as their expected reliability and availability. I would also include the social dynamic less enlightened women often introduce (drama).

To reiterate loltrosity's wise words, if it was economical to hire women, they would be fools not to and would get shut out by those who did. How can you argue against self-organizing market forces and promote market crippling legislation? Turn in your name at the desk, along with jokexplain who makes people cry, and all the other ironic thingexplain's.

Economyexplain here. Forgive me in advance because I've only studied these issues within the United States.   
   
Women do not make 77% of what men make.  When taking into account people with the same job and same number of hours worked (most studies use 40 hours per week as a basis for this), women make an average of 84-88% of what men make. Every government report, and I do mean every single one, shows this is not the case. Some fields, especially those that are in medical or STEM related, see women earning an acceptable 95% of men's wages, while the majority of other fields such as management or administration see women earning 70% of men's wages (again, this is taking into account the same occupation and the same hours worked).    
   
Also, while this may come as a major shock...   
  there are actually a total of 13 million women working in STEM and other advanced fields, while there are just over 10 million men working the same jobs. To give the comp credit though, their numbers concerning women with the "Least Lucrative College Majors" is relatively accurate.

I don't understand you guys. Most economists aren't very political, we just show numbers and facts. We do tend to hate ignorance though.

The VERY few public sector economists I've studied and worked with who have also been against equal pay were also the ones who'd blame Obama for every socioeconomic issue we covered, and cited FOX news and the Drudge report in their research papers. They weren't the brightest people and you almost wanted to clap when they got something right, but you're welcome to side with them.

I personally believe I am very purple, in between both parties, but while myself and many of my peers criticize all sides, it gets a little annoying to have someone who consistently brings their party affiliation into the mix. I'd be just as mad if it was some preteen with a hard-on for Obama praising him for every economic success of the past decade or so.

Also, anyone who studies public sector economics is familiar with the principle of market efficiency vs moral obligation; it's why we have a minimum wage and various social programs.

You're welcome to disagree with me on any point, but please do so productively. I wish more people would provide some sort of source or evidence, rather than call critical legislation "stupid."

Then, don't use the word yourself. Minimum wage isn't market efficiency vs moral obligation. Market efficiency is the moral obligation. It eliminates unemployment, and increases productivity. After all, the point is to lift people out of poverty, and there is no better way than to increase GDP. "Blasphemy!" you say. You know somehow minimum wage does have a positive purpose, but it's the opposite of what you think. It's not to automatically raise everyone out of poverty, because that's essentially impossible. It's to transform the market from unskilled and industrial to technological and creative by forcing people to get an education before they are allowed to work. So, if you find a moral advantage to forcing women out of work by creating inefficiencies in their market, then I will listen to it. Until then, "equal pay" is just another crazy attempt for someone to get their hands on the market that will just harm women more than anything else.

The moral obligation I refer to is that of a livable wage. Yes, without a minimum wage, the labor market would be far more balanced and unemployment would fall drastically (in concept; there's no telling if the lower wages will actually discourage more workers than are required for an efficient equilibrium). However, we as a society tend to view poverty as unacceptable and promote policies to fight this.

Our GDP continues to rise, but our GINI index rises faster. It proves that an increase in GDP doesn't necessarily eliminate poverty, but at least in recent years it does serve to make the rich even richer.

As for the rest of your argument, it goes against nearly everything I've learned and observed. The only women who may be forced out of the labor market will be forced out by business owners as a political statement, similar to what happens with every new law passed.

I welcome you to back up your claims with any empirical or observable evidence. I'm glad you're so passionate about the subject though, and take solace in the fact that your conservative extremists at least counter the equally insane cries of liberal extremists.

However, we as a society tend to view poverty as unacceptable and promote policies to fight this."

That doesn't disagree with me. Efficient wages can only be determined by market forces through negotiation. When you set a minimum wage, you give some people a "livable wage" (arbitrarily defined), and the rest no wage at all, more or less balancing out, except that it also limits the market itself. How can you decide what a fair wage is? Socialism doesn't work. Minimum wage must be dealt with carefully. It transforms the market only by cutting it. Now, don't say, "The scalpel worked. Let's start hacking!"

"The only women who may be forced out of the labor market will be forced out by business owners as a political statement, similar to what happens with every new law passed."

Business isn't spiteful, it can't afford to be. A business that dislikes legislation because it's less profitable isn't going to throw away more profit. Businesses are constantly trying to crunch numbers to maximize their profits. The decision of who to hire, when to hire, how many to hire, and how much to pay them is largely derived mathematically, and they have no choice but to stay within certain boundaries to make profits. People who are fired because of legislation, are fired because that legislation changed the math. Any other reason is just a welcome mat for their competition.

Not all women would be forced out, let alone immediately, because it also cost money to replace employees. But there wouldn't be as many job offerings, and they would slowly be replaced in areas where it is most profitable.

Well done economyexplain. Economics is also area of my (little) expertise. There are indeed quite many studies that indicate unexplainable differences in women's and men's wages, but usually less than 10% in the wider population of the work force. In certain areas however women with the same education job experience etc, still get unexplainable wage differences higher than 10%.

Even the most conservative studies that many people who are against equal pay laws cite show that there is a difference of at least 5-7% in men and women's earnings. Statistically speaking, any difference within 5% is acceptable, but to see it on an institutional level, as in across the board, is pretty disturbing, especially when you realize that making 5-7% less than your coworker in a high paying field can mean thousands of dollars less.

That 5-7% is explained by biological differences between men and women. Men tend to be more aggressive and vocal in regards to their maltreatment and asking for raises. Not to mention that men are on average taller which gives them a psychological advantage when negotiating things like clients or pay raises.

Nah, more likely that you have a thing for lesbians doing things to each other.

The fact that women make 77c for every $1 men make is unfair. That only leaves 23c for the men.

I'm a girl, and I'm so glad this got cleared up. I've heard about how women get paid less than men all the time and it didn't make any sense to me. The best thing about this post, though, is it's not aimed at any gender. They're not trying to anger feminazis and they're not trying to inflate men's indignation. So a thumb from me!

I agree, I always thought the 70 cents thing sounded way off.
