Re: “Pennies on the Dollar: A Tour of the North Carolina’s Gender-Wage Gap

Re: "... women in the state already make less on average than their male counterparts...."

Most women's advocates seem to believe employers are fiercely determined to pay women less than men for the same work.

Yet they also seem to think employers' prime modus operandi is greed. ("Corporate greed" is perhaps one of the Left's most salient rallying calls.) Thus they no doubt believe employers would hire only illegal immigrants for their lower labor cost if they could get away with it (many do get away with it), or would move their business to a cheap-labor country to save money, or would replace old workers with young ones for the same reason.

So why do these same feminist activists and women's advocates think employers would NOT hire only women if, as they say, employers DO get away with paying females at a lower rate than males for the same work?

Many of America's most sophisticated women choose to earn less than their male counterparts:

"Female physicians worked about 5 hours fewer per week than their male counterparts through age 54...." https://www.aamc.org/download/426242/data/ihsreportdownload.pdf?cm_mmc=AAMC-_-ScientificAffairs-_-PDF-_-ihsreport

In 2011, 22% of male physicians and 44% of female physicians worked less than full time, up from 7% of men and 29% of women from Cejkas 2005 survey. ama-assn.org/amednews/2012/03/26/bil10326.htm

"...[O]nly 35 percent of women who have earned MBAs after getting a bachelors degree from a top school are working full time." It "is not surprising that women are not showing up more often in corporations top ranks." http://malemattersusa.wordpress.com/2014/04/25/why-women-are-leaving-the-workforce-in-record-numbers/

"Compared to men, women view professional advancement as equally attainable, but less desirable" http://www.pnas.org/content/early/2015/09/15/1502567112.full.pdf

Re: “Pennies on the Dollar: A Tour of the North Carolina’s Gender-Wage Gap

"Furthermore, laws that mandate special workplace benefits to pregnant women are sexist towards men and biased against single people.."

No, these benefits would apply to any pregnant person, even if they were single of a man. Your premise is nonsensical. Covering a medical condition that only occurs in a limited number of the population is in no way discriminatory against those who do have to deal with that condition.

Re: “Pennies on the Dollar: A Tour of the North Carolina’s Gender-Wage Gap

Well there's a reason for this. Per the GAO, women work fewer and more flexible hours, doing less quantitative and mathematical work, and work in far safer jobs. They also are more likely to take time off for personal business.

Furthermore, laws that mandate special workplace benefits to pregnant women are sexist towards men and biased against single people.

Re: “SCOTUS Grants Emergency Stay For 2017 Special Elections

Forget voter fraud as the problem; what is the point of voting at all with judges and legislators in the way of fair, equitable districts?
