Again, rational people like economics professor Mark Perry have long explained the pay gap. But irrational Democrats need to keep alive myths and "causes" like this. Because without them, they are irrelevant! For this reason, they ignore "facts"and information that inconveniently contradict their phony "problems" because they really are, in fact, irrelevant. That irrelevance was never more clear with Obama completely distracted from world events while playing around in the 3rd world banana republic of Cuba and tango dancing in Argentina while Europe is under siege due to what Obama would call "workplace violence".
Economics professor Mark Perry says "the differences in raw wages may be almost entirely the result of the individual choices being made by both male and female workers.”
- Men work longer hours,
- Men work in more physically demanding occupations like farming, construction, roofing, logging, truck drivers and working on oil rigs,
- Women work in family-friendly workplace environments like teaching elementary school that coincide with their children’s schedules (with summers off, etc.),
- Men take less time off, or no time off, for child birth and child care to minimize their time away from the labor force that might affect their earnings.
