thats a well done comp, op. but i come here to laugh, not to fight an internet war against females. i really wish that anti-faminazi-propaganda would come to an end.

this isn't an anti-feminazi post, and you're an idiot.

I said it before on a post regarding this topic, and I'll say it again.    
   
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.

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 know FJ tends to thumb anything that talks about equal rights, but if you've made it this far, thanks for hearing me out at least. Feel free to comment and source if you disagree with anything I've had to share; I'm always open to new views.

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!

the claim has always been that women make 77 cents per man dollar doing the same job.

Ok so this site has been pretty bias against feminism lately and this just does it for me. The whole reason feminists are angry about wage difference is because when you compare people in the same exact job, a lot of the time co-workers, the males are making more than the females for no apparent reason. This post makes it look like a woman that works at mcdonalds is angry bc a man that is a civil engineer makes more than her. Thats not how it is.

Thank you.

Actual statistically backed information that approaches this issue from a non-biased point of view, not HUR BIGOTERD MEN ORPRESSING WOMEN or ITS THE MERN WHO RELLY HAFF IT BAD

Pretty interesting stuff but I'm pretty sure that the claim is that women in the same position as men get less pay. No idea if thats true but you did not disprove that.

That doesn't change the fact that STEM disciplines are traditionally thought of as a boys' domain and that there is societal pressure for women to take care of family, do household chores and generally not go for high-paying jobs. Science: It's a Girl Thing !
This is, for example, an ad that was supposed to encourage women to go into science. It was made for the EU commission in 2012, and it represents the rough picture of what large swaths of society still think of women: pink, make-up, looking pretty.
Want to put it more jokingly? www.smbc-comics.com/index.php?db=comics&id=1883#comic
From infancy, boys receive more encouragement to do better, more interesting things that will lead them one day to earn more money. Schools and culture in general expect boys, and not girls, to grow up to do science and the like, and girls can even be discouraged to pursue such careers.
I do not reject the data in the infographic; but saying that women earn less because they choose to and could earn more if they just wanted to is not an argument. In many ways, our society is still very much biased against women.

I hate when teachers complain about pay. We work 8 months a year, our work is EXTREMELY emotionally fulfilling, and we make 55G on average. For 8 months of work! PLUS BENEFITS! That's 80+G a year plus dank ass health care, tenure, a pension, and ample sick leave. I love my ******* job. So ******* much.
