Saw this on CNN... Study: Gender gap hits after graduation, widens later.
A dramatic pay gap emerges between women and men in America the year after they graduate from college and widens over the ensuing decade, according to research released on Monday.
One year out of college, women working full time earn 80 percent of what men earn, according to the study by the American Association of University Women Educational Foundation, based in Washington D.C.
You know, whenever you come across a study or piece of research, it is very important to see who has funded/done the study.
American Association of University Women Educational Foundation.This study just lost all its credibility in my eyes, because its just more of the same dreck that comes out of feminist think tanks claiming women are oh-so-oppressed while assuming that women do make the same choices. The AAUW is the same group of cunts who put forward the "study" showing that girls were being short-changed in schools. They have a history of lying.
Even as the study accounted for such factors as the number of hours worked, occupations or parenthood, the gap persisted, researchers said.
"If a woman and a man make the same choices, will they receive the same pay?" the study asked. "The answer is no.
"These unexplained gaps are evidence of discrimination, which remains a serious problem for women in the work force."
Yeah sure, I believe you. L-oh-fucking-L. What flawed mechanisms did you use to get that result? How many lies did you fill in that one sentence? Why is your nose growing longer, you fucking cunt?
The implication is that women make the same choices as men, which is true - as far as going to college goes. After that, women overwhelmingly choose the "fluff" fields, carefully calculated to make their college careers as easy as possible, while men slog it out in the hard subjects. Go check out the Engineering building sometime you cunt, and count just how many patriarchal oppressors you see, and compare that to the number of vaginas. Then go to the Education department.
Now that you've done your research, look up an Engineer's salary on salary.com and compare it to how much a Kindergarten teacher makes.
Now print that out, roll it up, and STICK IT UP YOUR ASS!
Specifically, about one-quarter of the pay gap is attributable to gender - 5 percent one year after graduation and 12 percent 10 years after graduation, it said.
One year out of college, men and women should arguably be the least likely to show a gender pay gap, the study said, since neither tend to be parents yet and they enter the work force without significant experience.
If there was "only" a 5 percent difference in teen suicides, in the number of men who go into psychology compared to women, or pretty much any situation where men are disadvantages, it would be attributed to statistical error or "it is just how it is."
How many women care that men die, on average, 7-10 years younger? Its just biology, right?
What I got out of this article is that men work harder, take the harder courses in college, are less likely to be an entitlement princess waiting for some sucker on a white horse to come along, and are less likely to slack in the workplace.
All stereotypes of women, ALL FUCKING TRUE. Women just don't work as hard as men because they know, whether they are "traditional" or not, that its the man's job to provide for both of them. And there ain't going to be much providin' going on with a Kindergarten teacher's salary, which is why all the men in Education have Ph D's and teach at the Professor level.
Female students tended to study areas with lower pay, such as education, health and psychology, while male students dominated higher-paying fields such as engineering, mathematics and physical sciences, it said.
Even so, one year after graduation, a pay gap turned up between women and men who studied the same fields.
In education, women earn 95 percent as much as their male colleagues earn, while in math, women earn 76 percent as much as men earn, the study showed.
Here's the explanation you need - women don't work as hard and are not as good at mathematics as men.
There, I said it.
