It's misleading, and that's my point. It paints a very different picture than reality.
Second, you don't believe that the possibility of having and raising a child and all the disruptions that would cause in work could be considered by employers? Especially for a small business.... I need to keep Bob happy, but Sally will probably leave in a few years anyway so whatever. My boss is a women and she mentions it! Actively tries to make sure not to discriminate based on it, but definitely crosses her mind.
I agree, absolutely. Hiring a woman in her early thirties or late twenties is a risk due to family obligations. Happens all the time, and it might be a source of discrimination. It should be looked into. That being said, you can only go by what's in front of you. If you have the best candidate in front of you and she's a 31 year old female, you hire her, almost always.
Finally, what the hell kind of world do you think we would enter where women would be paid MORE for the same work? That is not how anti-discrimination laws work. Did you know that Obama already passed the equal pay for equal work law? It was so horrible that you didn't even notice.....
People are paid differently due to many different circumstances. Some people are always available and always on call and are completely dedicated and devoted to their companies. Should they be compensated equally than the person who works 9-5 and doesn't pick up the phone when called outside of office hours? Of course not. There are real differences between the way some men and some women are willing to work. They are compensated accordingly. I know that is the case at every company I've ever worked at. Do you not agree?
Women tend to make less money because they have, in general, different priorities. This is not the case in all examples, obviously. I guarantee you that if they did a study including only women that have never been married and no children and compared them to men in the same situations that gap dissapears.
Children are the single biggest detriment on female earning potential. I know this is absolutely the case in my family and just the opportunity cost will be way over a million dollars in our lifetime earnings. You pay a HUGE, HUGE price to have children, and females, unfortunately, shoulder almost all of that burden.
Regarding lying, I don't see how you can say that is what is making you so angry and then cheer on President Trump so loudly. It doesn't pass the smell test.
Not all lies are the same. The gender wage Gap is a huge, huge lie. Same with global warming (admittedly harder to be sure of). Literally the entire leftist agenda is based on lies. Lies so big they shape public opinion and cause serious issues in society, which result in anger and resentment.
Do you disagree with that? For example, if you believe that minorities in this country are systemically discriminated against, something like the shooting in Dallas last year may be viewed in a completely different light than if you don't believe in it. It really means something.
