Women’s Attitudes on the Gender Pay Gap May Surprise You

Pew Research Center survey found that 62 percent of women believe that women “generally” get paid less than men for doing the same work. However, when asked about their own companies, far fewer — just 14 percent total — believe women are getting paid less than men where they work, and 17 percent say women have fewer opportunities for promotions where they work.

. . .

Although Census data show that women make less money on average than men, this fails to consider any information about how women and men choose to pursue a work/life balance, whether they enter a career that requires 80-hour work weeks or 40-hour work weeks, whether they take time out of the workforce to raise children, how much education they attain, whether they go into careers like investment banking or education, surgery or nursing, etc.

Our take:  The Gender Pay Gap is nonexistent, yet the MSM and SJWs trot it out over and over in an attempt to prove a falsehood.  Don’t fall into the trap, do your research. The article by Emily Ekins of the Cato Institute is a good place to start.
