It's basically referring to how women earn less then men, 72 cents to a dollar.

If women are paid less for doing the same work, why don't corporations exclusively hire women and save a buttload on payroll?

It's almost like corporations can actually afford to pay their workers more, regardless, without any ill effects...? Huh, imagine that...

This is true even after adjusting for industry and position. But the causes are complicated, starting with primary education or earlier when children are told there are men jobs and women jobs.

Powerful message. I still can't understand why Republicans in the Senate block legislation for wage parity between men and women, and full paid maternity benefits, including 6–12 months post birth.

In the UK it is illegal to pay women less for the same work. It does still happen (BBC!) but it shouldn't. However the trend is reversing and shortly it will be men who are paid less. This is when you adjust for time off to have children (this lack of promotion etc)... this is because the type of work women excel at is (more likely to be technical and detailed) is becoming more common and better paid and the manual (very physical work) that men excel at is becoming less well paid because of greater automation. So should be interesting times ahead.

Ohmygawd, I'm so tired of this. The equal pay act was signed into law in 1963, and then ratified over the years, including 2019. I have worked in male-dominant jobs, and I have always been paid equal - if not more so - than my male counterparts. I'm so tired of hearing women bitch about this. If you're doing the exact some job, with the exact same level of skill for the exact same amount of time and you're not getting equal pay, then go complain to your boss or HR or go sue. Don't whine about it; do something legit to fix it.. This isn't legit.

I read the explanations now, at least 4 of them, but I thought it meant the parents were going to spend more money, and so have less to give away, if they had a girl.

Then have them give the wallets back. If it was a girl wallet, you have to give them half of everything you earned since they accepted your invitation to the party.

Or, if it’s blue it’s gender stereotyping parents who choose their kid’s sex based on the baby’s ➡️PRIVATE⬅️ parts. If it’s pink, the parents will let their kid decide for themselves and develop their own identity because nobody else can tell you who you are.

This has been proven to not be true in almost all western countries. If you think a degree in social studies is going to get you the same pay as one in mechanical engineering, well, get ready for bad news.

Vorknkx

This isn't a comparison between social studies and mechanical engineering, but rather a comparison between people in the same field (i.e. one mechanical engineer will be compared to another mechanical engineer, not to a waiter, or a school teacher, or a painter, etc.).

I had an interesting conversation about this with a great high school teacher I had. He was talking about how much of an effect parents (and nurture in general) has on the pain perception of kids that will later determine how "tough" of an adult they will become. This was one example: your child falls. As an adult you generally can gauge quite well how bad that fall was and can control YOUR reaction. That silent moment is actually your child looking for THAT, how mommy or daddy acts now. If you run towards them with a face full of horror, they start to scream and cry. If you calmly pick them up with a smile and a casual "whoopsie" they will smile back. The first type will likely be more sensitive to pain as an adult, the latter more impervious.

According to Peymirat from ‘Calmer Parenting,’ the coronavirus has changed family life in a lot of ways. At the start of the pandemic, there were a lot of kids learning via the internet and this caused a lot of new issues for parents, from learning how the heck Zoom works to figuring out how to keep their kids entertained all day at home.

As coronavirus cases continue to rise, we might see a greater return to distance learning in some areas, and parents will have to juggle having their children at home all the time again. Some schools are already having classes online again, but not all parents are working from home again, so it’s a real pickle of a situation.

Peymirat explained that there are both positives and negatives that came with the pandemic. On the plus side, the pandemic led to more interactions between parents and their kids, especially when everyone was under lockdown.

On the flip side, the lockdowns had also increased the amount of time that kids spend in front of screens. That’s not all, however.

“Some parents reported anxiety in teens who did not want to go out and see friends, not so from younger children who are often quite resilient,” the parent coach revealed. She said that the best way to calm down a child is to be factual about the Covid-19 pandemic and to give them advice about protecting themselves and others.

Peymirat also advised parents who are feeling overwhelmed with everything to take any opportunity that they can to have some alone time with just themselves or with their partner. This way, parents can recharge, relax, and be ready to overcome anything else that 2020 throws at them.

One Czech singer wrote a loong Facebook post a couple of months ago after he had to live alone for a few weeks because of covid. It was all about how amazing his partner is, how he hadn't realized until then that the laundry doesn't wash/dry/fold itself, that dishes have to be washed and that toilet doesn't stay clean on its own. He praised his girlfriend so much. Not one sentence mentioned that he's going to now participate more and so many people clapped to say how amazing he is.
