Men Deserve Equal Pay

For Young Earners in Big City, a Gap in Women’s Favor

Young women in New York and several of the nation’s other largest cities who work full time have forged ahead of men in wages, according to an analysis of recent census data.

The shift has occurred in New York since 2000 and even earlier in Los Angeles, Dallas and a few other cities.

Economists consider it striking because the wage gap between men and women nationally has narrowed more slowly and has even widened in recent years among one part of that group: college-educated women in their 20s. But in New York, young college-educated women’s wages as a percentage of men’s rose slightly between 2000 and 2005.

The analysis was prepared by Andrew A. Beveridge, a demographer at Queens College, who first reported his findings in Gotham Gazette, published online by the Citizens Union Foundation. It shows that women of all educational levels from 21 to 30 living in New York City and working full time made 117 percent of men’s wages, and even more in Dallas, 120 percent.

Well. There we have it. Women in certain areas are making more money than men. The Wage Gap, in certain circumstances actually favours women. This report will have to be ignored by the feminists.

Nationwide, that group of women made much less: 89 percent of the average full-time pay for men.
Of course this had to be mentioned or feminists would be camping outside the New York Times offices for months, but think about that group.. "college educated women in their 20s".. I'm so used to feminists deliberately omitting certain important factors from these figures in order to "prove" a wage gap that I immediately look at exactly what is being taken into account when I see a claim like this. So, in regards to "college educated women in their 20s", when we adjust for hours worked, practical value of college degree obtained (eg. engineering degrees are worth more than womyn's studies degrees), whether they moved to obtain the job and so forth, what will we come up with?

Not 89 percent is what.

Still, someone should inform the National Organisation for Women of the 89 percent gap, considering they still wallow in their imaginary economic oppression on April 24th, indicating they claim women earn 77 percent what a man does (this is usually rounded down to an even 70 by Internet feminists). Looks like it's 89 percent nationwide in the group subject to the widest gap, so even if they weren't deliberately misleading everyone about the equality of the work, they are still blatantly bullshitting about the extent of the gap.

Just why young women at all educational levels in New York and other big cities have fared better than their peers elsewhere is a matter of some debate. But a major reason, experts say, is that women have been graduating from college in larger numbers than men, and that many of those women seem to be gravitating toward major urban areas.

In 2005, 53 percent of women in their 20s working in New York were college graduates, compared with only 38 percent of men of that age. And many of those women are not marrying right after college, leaving them freer to focus on building careers, experts said.

Not surprising considering 58 percent of college students are women these days. Naturally feminists like the American Association of University Women aren't going to be doing anything to redress this education gap. They did after all create it by doing things like releasing the report "How Schools Shortchange Girls" in 1992, despite the fact that they were later forced to admit girls had already begun overtaking boys at the time the report was released. Of course this was too late to stop everyone rallying to the cause of girls and really, at that stage, they were more interested in focusing on girls underperforming in specific areas, such as math and science in order to further skew the system against boys anyway.

“Citified college-women are more likely to be nonmarried and childless, compared with their suburban sisters, so they can and do devote themselves to their careers,” said Andrew Hacker, a Queens College sociologist and the author of “Mismatch: The Growing Gulf Between Men and Women.”
In other words, they are single - so are working full-time and they have moved (to an urban center) to get a better paying job. Essentially doing key things they would need to in order to close the "wage gap" and .. they are getting paid more than men. So at the end of the day, despite whining from feminists, if a woman applies herself in the sort of manner a man does, taking full advantage of the education system being skewed in her favour and equal employment opportunity initiatives like affirmative action; she gets paid more than men.

Kelly Kraft, 25, is one of those women. A native of Indiana, she came to New York after graduating from the University of Dayton, got a job in publishing and now works for an advertising agency. “I just felt New York had a lot more exciting opportunities in different industries than Indianapolis,” she said.

“In women’s-studies courses you always heard that men were making more money, and it was a disadvantage being a woman,” Ms. Kraft said. “It’s great that it’s starting to turn around.”

Shouldn't it be discrimination, like it is when women earn less? Honestly, if women underperforming in math and science is being considered horrendous even when they outperform boys overall, then doesn't that contradict with ignoring a specific area where women earn more than men, particularly when the notion that men's overall earnings are higher may not even be the case when all factors are taken into account? Nope. Apparently when men are discriminated against, it's "great".

Though Dr. Beveridge’s analysis showed women making strides, it also showed that men were in some ways moving backward. Among all men — including those with college degrees — real wages, adjusted for inflation, have declined since 1970. And among full-time workers with advanced degrees, wages for men increased only marginally even as they soared for women. Nationally, men’s wages in general declined while women’s remained the same.
So pretty much, in order to pay for all this affirmative action which allows women to be paid equally to, or in this case more than men, the money is at least partially taken out of men's pay packets. Fan-fucking-tastic.

Several experts also said that rising income for women might affect marriage rates if women expect their mates to have at least equivalent salaries and education.

“When New York college women say there are few eligible men around, they’re right if they mean they’ll only settle for someone with an education akin to their own,” Professor Hacker said.

Precisely. Their greed in the matter doesn't pay in the end. For all this statistical debunking of actual physical man shortages, women don't understand why for some reason they seem unable to get a man. It's because they tend towards hypergamy and if they are getting paid as much as most men, the eligible dating pool shrinks considerably. If women were getting exactly equal pay on average and retained their tendency to marry up and be provided for by an even richer man a minimum of 50% of women would not be finding a suitable partner.

So at the end of the day girls, all that money can be spent on feeding ever increasing herds of cats because the men you want have enough options to marry an educated girl that will dedicate her life to her family rather than her career.
