Re: “Pennies on the Dollar: A Tour of the North Carolina‚Äôs 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/
