An interesting article that I came across the other day. It’s a good dose of comon sense and a useful refute to all of the “But, it’s been shown that women only earn 75% of what men do” nonsense.
From the article:
“Full-time employed males (whether fathers or not) on average work eight hours a week more than full-time employed females. According to the International Labor Organization, the average American father works 51 hours a week, whereas those mothers of young children who do work full time (themselves a minority) work a 41-hour week. Women earn 76% of what men do for working 84% (not 100%) as many hours. “
