It depends on how well they do their job and how long they have been doing their job, jobs can't be used as labels for income. Some jobs where 2 men have the same job one of them still receives better pay because they have done a better job. Feminists need to quit being so vague with their protests and worry about getting better at their job to increase their income instead of acting entitled.

I think there should be tax incentives for single income married couples w children. Women should be paid equally

@5NV3P7XGreenfrom California  answered…2yrs

yes, but hourly rates of individuals are already the same. Life style choices affect income.

@5PFG8B2Constitutionfrom Arizona  answered…2yrs

Yes, they should earn the same unless they can't perform the job as adequately. Example: Most women cannot carry someone over their shoulder out of a burning building, like a man can. (Firemen). In this instance, I not only don't think she should earn the same, but I don't think she should even be hired for a job she can't perform as well as a man.....and endanger lives.

Forced equality is not true equality.
What actually occurs in the free market is wages come down as more workers enter the workforce. Not the reverse. Since historically the newbie into an otherwise stable workforce will challenge the existing workforce to improve methods and lower costs. That's how they show their value and earn a position. Since women are relatively newer to the global earning workforce, they have to and do add more value for less; and, as a result they have acquired jobs that were previously held by their less productive per dollar male counterparts.

This is a stupid question. What do we mean by the same job? should a male teacher who just started be paid the same amount as a female teacher with thirty years experience? Of course not, the longer you work the more you get paid to keep you around. That's the price of experience and knowledge. Also how were these studies conducted that conclude that women are making between two thirds and three fourths compared to men's earnings? comparing a woman who works as a cashier at a 7-11 to a man who works as an investment banker will provide a stark contrast indeed. The studies I've seen for

I have yet to hear anyone explain the wage gap in a way that makes economic sense.
That it exists is unquestioned but until you know why it exist you legislating a result is counter productive: equal pay legislation is flat stupid. As an employer I will tell you that equal pay will result in fewer women being hired and separation of male and female carrier paths. I would support an 'affirmative action like' program for women

Only IF the woman can ACTUALLY do the job as a man could without the assistance of a man.

Regardless there should be no discrimination based on gender. Instead other variables such as education, experience, work ethic, etc., should be what the income is based on

As long as women adjust their professional lives to their family needs, they'll never be doing the same job. I know men who work 7am to 11pm & have wives take care of the kids. Men are often more willing to travel & sacrifice for their jobs. Women are more likely to sacrifice for their families. As long as that's the case, men should receive the benefit of their sacrifices. If women want those same benefits, they'll have to make the same sacrifices within the same venue. Your workplace shouldn't be paying you a bigger salary to stay home & take care of your own kids. It's an issue for spouses to decide or for the unmarried to decide how much of their lives will be tied to their workplace.

Yes, but only if all other variables are the same as well. This includes, education, experience, tenure, and abilities.

@B4LCKP3Republican from New York answered…4 days

Wages should be based on performance not gender. If a woman performs equally as well as a man then yes they should be paid the same. Either way this is up to private businesses not the government.

Most salary positions, there is a "letter of offer" for offer of employment. And even though that is suppose to be confidential, it is usual found out, what the opposite sec makes. But I do believe if they do the same job, all the brain work and heavy lifting, they should be paid the same. You would probably have to cut out the "letter of offer of employment".

No, first the paygap is irrelevant, and depending on the effort, or better work from a man he can be payed more, but he should not be given more money just cause he is a man.
