Comment on Pay Gap

Way Ive heard when you take into account profession choices e.g. ( electrical engineer vs nurse), (computer engineer vs teacher), with females tending more to one than to the other(it's the difference between working with things versus working more directly with people), the wage gap basically disappears and some have said studies indicate in those under 30 the supposed gap is actually strongly in favor of females over males.

If men by moving more between corps in search of a higher salary, a high risk move more men tend to make than women, by working more hours often at the expense of family something that might be done by more men than women, ask their bosses for raises taking the risk more often, somehow manage to in their later years EARN a few % more raises and overcome the pay gap in favor of females. Don't see the issue, and again it is still a very small advantage of a few percent in the remaining pay gap once professions are accounted for.

This is without taking into account that the curve of iq spreads more for males, making men basically far more common at the extremes of iq, even admitted by left researchers like Stephen Pinker, iirc.

"Young women in New York and several of the nation’s other largest cities who work full time have forged ahead of men in wages, according to an analysis of recent census data.

The shift has occurred in New York since 2000 and even earlier in Los Angeles, Dallas and a few other cities. " For Young Earners in Big City, a Gap in Women’s Favor-ny times
