Many men think the gender pay gap is fake news

The latest US Census Bureau data shows that on average, women in the US make 81 cents to every dollar earned by a man. However, a new Survey Monkey poll of 8,566 American adults found that 46% of male respondents believe that the pay gap ’is made up to serve a political purpose’. About two in 10 men call the polls ’fake news’.

The infamous gender pay gap, still? It's been debunked so many times, why do people still talk about this? The only way to close the "gender pay gap" is by either forcing all women to become engineers, or communism.

If women are so routinely underpaid, wouldn't it make financial sense for companies to hire more women than men? Total nonsense

Can we please stop talking about this ridiculous lie? No sane person thinks the free market is inherently sexist.

If it's Google and you are a white male recent internal investigations showed you were being underpaid compared with female and other ethnic backgrounds. Looks like we need to start implimenting policies to protect white males from these predatory pay gaps.

Surprise result: it's not a gender pay's an earnings gap brought about by personal choice and circumstance! Ta-da!

This has been debunked over and over and over. It is utter nonsense. The discrepancy exists because men work more hours. It's VERY simple stuff.

Just get men to stop asking for raises. That'll toootally work.

Despite the idiot click-bait title, I heartily recommend the market watch article, if you want some good hard data to debunk the gender wage gap (again).

Women , never married and never had children, living in metropolitan areas earn roughly 8% more than men in the same demographic. Sexism? Lesbians earn more than straight women. Tall men earn more than short men and gay men earn more than both. Here's a little know secret, When men make the same career path and work/life balance choices that the average woman does, they earn less than the average man does too.

There is no wage gap. Work the same hours, work in the same dangerous and/or undesirable jobs and you’ll earn the same. Unless they’re talking about the gap in salary between a male and a female adult film star or model. But I’ve never seen that pushed by the left since it doesn’t agree with their fake statistics narrative.

I have never worked along side a wahmen doing the same job with the same hrs worked and she gets less pay. It is illegal to pay someone less for the same job and the same hrs worked. The horse is dead. Stop beating it.

You can't take a multi factorial phenomenon like wage differential and reduce it to a single variable.

Because many men understand how the gender pay gap is calculated because they actually research it unlike 99% of illiterate and uneducated Feminists. It should tick the light bulb when every Feminist who is an Economist or has education in Finances rolls their eyes at the wage gap topic, specifically when they are actually educated. Here's another stat which undermines the wage gap: Women constitute 80% of the economic spending force. Here's another thing which undermines the very name of the wage gap: Men funnel their salaries to their female family and loved ones because those are the women that matter, not some random irrelevant feminist who neither is nor should be part of that man's life and can go inhale her cats' piss. So it's a Priority Gap as opposed to a Wage Gap. Prioritize women close to you, give the middle finger to the rest who are irrelevant and not part of your life, nor should be if you have any consideration for your short lifespan given to you by your mother and father.
