For those of you who say that women make 70 cents on the dollar to men at the same job with the same qualifications --- what's the solution?

There is no solution. Because the gender wage gap is bull****.

you don't.

women will suspend their careers because of family issues more frequently and those lost service times will never be recovered from a salary standpoint.

As long as there is the risk that the employee might get pregnant, you mean?

As a long time LEO, the female officers made the exact same wage as me, depending their time in service and education level.

Same vacation, same sick leave, everything was the same and we did the same job....................well allegedly.

Either be happy with your $.70 or quit.

For every dollar I make my for my employer, he gives me $.38. But I typacally break $100 K right around the 4th of July.

So the solution is union representation & government employment?

That's bullcrap. Women do not make 70 cents for the same jobs, that's a complete and total feminist lie. The comparison is between ALL women in ALL jobs vs. ALL men in All jobs. It is a CRIME under the Equal Pay Act of 1963 to pay anyone differently for the same job. Of course, feminists just ignore that part.

Women tend to CHOOSE lesser paying jobs that require LESS time at work. They tend to take MORE TIME OFF than men. Women are not paid less than men, women EARN less than men, BY THEIR OWN CHOICES! There is no gender wage gap.

But, you know, don't let reality get in the way or anything. :roll:
