    Default Women's Pay

    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.

    I think the left using women is as bad as your argument above, personally.

    Women are better multi-taskers then men, it's just the way it is. Many offer different strengths and skillsets, again a huge generalization but historically true.

    (stupid emotion seems to be forced when you type reality) isn't always what you want it.

    There are women who do not use jobs as a hobby and there are women that do. I don't see very many men using their job as a hobby. This is why it appears women do not make as much as men in statistics.

    Also, I'm pretty sure boses are going to notice that if the shift ends at 4 and you leave every day no matter what needs to get done, your pay will be severly different over time of the person willing to go the extra mile and staying late to get it done. Men are statistically more likely do to do this becuase we are able in the family dynamic.

    All my comments in this thread are targeted at salary employees who may or may not get overtime.

    Really, becuase I just read a study on this that said otherwise. Maybe you should stop taking common wisetails as fact. There is contradictions all over the internet on this subject.

    I'm talking salary, with or without overtime. I don't always get overtime as salary and I'm sure many other millions of people are in the same boat.

    Hell, I'll work 12 -15 hrs a day for 2-3 days and earn nothing, then make $5K -$10K on day 4.

    I haven't punched a clock since....I cant even remember.

    Icy, I don't think its a valid argument. I don't believe that we need the left to legislate equality for women. The Lilly Ledbetter act imo is a law to sue, nothing to do with equal pay.

    I believe an employee is an employee no matter what the employees race or sex is. I believe the individual commands what his or hers labor is worth or what they are willing to work for , not a law.

    I could call a baseball player a hobby job while you call a mom selling pampered chef a hobby not a job. I don't think there is any real need to discuss legislated equality just like I disagree with the ever rising minimum wage.

    The question in last nights debate concerning women and equal pay was little more then a planted diversion. The reality is there are very few business's that can be run with an employee base that makes their own schedule. I can't think of any that don't relate to clerical skills.

    Exactly. If a woman can't accept a postion and hold her end of the contract barring any emergency that pulls her away, which would pull a father away too, she shouldn't accept the job.

    All that said, there are plenty of women/family friendly employers. Good employers are out there.

    This sounds remakably like something that in my personal opinion Ram or Chuck-a-Cox would post.

    Let me ask you this; why on earth should women be paid less than men for the same job?

    We work for hobby and like being paid less than our equal counterparts?

    I don't think what someone else makes is anyone elses business.

    We have a woman in our department that believes that the company should tailor it's hours around her personal schedule. The subject of her kids comes up often. When asked about where her husband is in this, she said that even though her husband's schedule is more flexible, she doesn't trust him. She didn't like it when I said that if she couldn't work with the schedule (we work 24/7 359) she shouldn't have applied for this job....She didn't like that. BTW, there are a number of women that work in our department that have no problem with the schedule. Some have kids.
