Sexism is more of a reality than inflation. :D
Could it be because men tend to work in much more challenging and difficult careers? This 30% less pay statistic is bullcrap because it doesn’t take into account the types of jobs men continue to pursue. We now know that more women graduate from university than men, yet STEM fields are still majority male graduates. Women get paid less because, on average, they aren’t willing to work in the types jobs that men traditionally fulfill. I agree, we need more garbage collector women. We need more high-rise construction worker women. We need more women electrical and computer engineers. You cannot complain about making less money on average, if you’re not willing to do the same work as a man on average.
