Why do women need equal pay statistically? A lot of women get jobs and they used it more as a hobby. They show up late from dropping off kids, leave early to pick up kids. May or may not work at home to make up the time (if they really do, I question how productive it is) or they work part time all together.
Why on earth do we need to have statistically the same pay numbers for the male showing up at 5-6am and leaving at 6-7pm every single day. If they want equal pay, stop treating your job like a hobby job.
Women are more likely to take care of the kids and the home still today. That is why there is a difference in the statistics. If you want equal pay, don't have kids and work just as hard as the male counterparts. It's that simple.
Yes I konw there are individual cases that do no fit this but statistically in the big picture this is how the world is.
