It’s quite facile to continue citing this bogus statistic.

There’s definitely a wage gap, and we can argue the merits of whether or not that’s “ok,” but it’s certainly not $0.23 when accounting for all factors.

The wage gap is affected by a number of factors, including that more of the weeks worked by women are part-time rather than full-time. Women also tend to leave the workforce for periods to raise children, seek jobs that may have more flexible hours but lower pay, and choose careers that tend to have lower pay.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
