The Actual Wage Gap 5.85 cents: From The Mouth Of The Beast.

"In 2006, women earned 76.6% as much as men) and is calculated by dividing the median annual earnings for women by the median annual earnings for men."

Keep in mind the wage gap is what economists refer to as the Raw Wage Gap i.e. the median average wage disparity of all men and women in the workforce as is outlined above. It is NOT calculated for the same job as pop feminism would like you to believe. Lets continue...

"After controlling for hours, occupation, parenthood, and other factors known to affect earnings, the research indicates that one-quarter of the pay gap remains unexplained"

So where does this leave us. Well the only part of the pay gap that is not explained by women's OWN CHOICES of hours worked, occupation, parenthood,and other factors of women's choices there is one quarter left of the Raw Wage Gap that is unexplained. The portion "unexplained" totals to 5.85 cents. Feminists attribute this "unexplained" portion to "sex discrimination".

So not only is the 76 cents to the male dollar NOT FOR THE SAME JOB as feminists say but is the RAW WAGE GAP or "calculated by dividing the median annual earnings for women by the median annual earnings for men." furthermore the actual amount of this gap that is left after WOMEN'S OWN CHOICES ARE FACTORED IN is 5.85 cents. This amount according to the AAUW is "unexplained".

So just to be thorough in statistics there is what is known as the "margin of error" which is +/- 2-3%
When the average margin of error is factored into the statistics that leaves us with 5.85 cents with 0.1755 cents +/-

Keep in mind, we must continue to find every aspect beyond full time work in order to find the disparity. The consequences of not doing so will lead women to continue to lobby the government to create wage based liability laws in order to socialize wages and destroy the free market. The dangers of women believing the are oppressed by men, "the patriarchy" and capitalism will have grave consequences, it already has. We can't let women do this. One aspect of differences beyond measuring full time work is that men work more than full time:

Thank you for posting this, Red. I got into an argument with someone recently over the wage gap. I have never, not to this day, ever seen a Feminist present documented evidence of convicted cases that assert that huge numbers of women are being discriminated against in wages. If the 25% disparity were truly about discrimination, there would be rampant evidence, especially as we know that women are generally more litigous in the workplace.
