Smokey, denial ain't a river in Africa
http://www.forbes.com/sites/realspin...qual-pay-myth/The wage gap statistic, however, doesn’t compare two similarly situated co-workers of different sexes, working in the same industry, performing the same work, for the same number of hours a day. It merely reflects the median earnings of all men and women classified as full-time workers.
Need more? Are all of these BS too?
http://www.examiner.com/article/obam...ue-experts-sayThis gender gap is not the result of rampant discrimination. Rather, it exists because men and women often work in different jobs, work different hours, and have different qualifications. When work experience, education, occupation, and hours of work are taken into account, the average woman makes 98 cents for every dollar earned by a man,” Sherk said.
So then why — if it’s true that women are getting paid 77 cents for every dollar a man makes; if women are not getting equal pay for doing the same job — why would any company hire any man at all? Why wouldn’t companies only hire women to do all the work and save 23 percent on their labor costs? This is not a rhetorical question," Goldberg said. "If greedy businessmen are fixated on “maximizing profits” how do we account for so many “overpaid” men in the workforce?"
http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-505125_1...complete-myth/According to highly acclaimed career expert and best-selling author, Marty Nemko, "The data is clear that for the same work men and women are paid roughly the same. The media need to look beyond the claims of feminist organizations."
On a radio talk show, Nemko clearly and forcefully debunked that ultimate myth - that women make less than men - by explaining why, when you compare apples to apples, it simply isn't true. Even the White House report: Women in America: Indicators of Social and Economic Well-Being explains why. Simply put, men choose higher-paying jobs.
http://articles.marketwatch.com/2012...-paying-fieldsLegitimate comparisons look at men and women with the same job tenure in the same position at the same firm. If there’s a big difference under those circumstances, there may be discrimination, giving women grounds to sue. Federal law forbids discrimination, and permits such suits.
When economists compare men and women in the same job with the same experience, the analysts find that they earn about the same. Studies by former Congressional Budget Office director June O’Neill, University of Chicago economics professor Marianne Bertrand, and the research firm Consad all found that women are paid practically the same as men.
Looks like if there is a BS link here it is yours.

It appears songfourone was first whining about women being paid less than men.
What's to check?
Just as much as Smokey in this instance.
Where on this thread did Smokey say anythings about whites?
Woman may be paid less than men overall, but perhaps there are factors other than sex that account for it.
Also, there are indications that in certain places, women are earning more than men.
lBut now there's evidence that the ship may finally be turning around: according to a new analysis of 2,000 communities by a market research company, in 147 out of 150 of the biggest cities in the U.S., the median full-time salaries of young women are 8% higher than those of the guys in their peer group. In two cities, Atlanta and Memphis, those women are making about 20% more. This squares with earlier research from Queens College, New York, that had suggested that this was happening in major metropolises. But the new study suggests that the gap is bigger than previously thought, with young women in New York City, Los Angeles and San Diego making 17%, 12% and 15% more than their male peers, respectively. And it also holds true even in reasonably small areas like the Raleigh-Durham region and Charlotte in North Carolina (both 14% more), and Jacksonville, Fla. (6%).
I don't know about the rest of you, but I want to move to Smokey's world where everything is rainbows and puppy dogs for gays, women, minorities, etc. None of them ever suffer in justice or discrimination and the playing field is completely level and equal for all. Must be a wonderful place that Smokey utopia.
You present a link to a "fact letter" produced by a group that lobby's for women at work and then you call my links from CBS News, Forbe's, Market Watch and the Examiner BS? Why don't you counter my argument with some facts or something relevant instead of all the deflections?
