No, Women Are Not Paid 77¢ for Every Dollar a Man Is Paid for the Same Work

05 Sep

Spot on.
That old lie refuses to die, and people keep believing it, alas…

Enjoyment and Contemplation

Apples and OrangesThe Progressive Paradigm says that women are paid only 77% of what men are paid for the same work.

It’s remarkable that this narrative is so widely repeated and so durable, because it is easily shown to be wrong.

  1. To control or not to control
  2. The whipping boy that keeps on giving
  3. Controlling for thee but not for me

Here’s what Mr. Ploof says:

According to the National Committee on Pay Equity, in 2012, womens’ pay was 77 percent of a man’s pay despite the data showing more women are graduating from college than men and are earning higher grades.

    Those links (1,2,3) don’t work here but do at the original.

    Weird; I don’t know how to fix that; that kind of thing sometimes happens with reposts, esp. YouTube clips.

    The “” that got added in before the cents sign appears to be the culprit. I blame WordPress. You might try editing the post and editing that out manually, if desired.

      I can only amend my part of the repost, i.e. just any comments I’ve added, far as I know.

    Wow, that’s inconvenient. Again, I blame WordPress. I guess I’ve never tried the “reblog” feature.

    I love the fact that WordPress compulsively capitalizes the internal “P” every time I write the word. They wouldn’t want me to get their branding wrong while calling their product faulty!

    Even if it’s true, it’s still $0.78 more than they’re worth.

    A young woman graduates from the university with a degree in women’s studies. She can’t find a job, and finally goes to Starbuck’s. She fills out the application, and talks to the manager. The manager says, “I’m sorry, all our employees with a women’s studies degree have at least a master’s degree.”

    Okrahead completely stole my thunder. I might even be so bold as to add that in my field (IT engineering) women should actually be PAYING for the privilege of pretending to work while wreaking havoc on productivity and stealing qualified men’s jobs.
