Do women make less than men?
So a paper came out that I suggest everyone who is interested in the pay gap read.
Basically, a lot of outcry comes from the saying "women make less than men". However, it's more accurate to say "women EARN less than men", NOT "women get PAID less than men". If a woman gets paid less, it means she gets paid less for the SAME work, and that doesn't happen much anymore. However, women regularly earn less than men because they tend to work in less lucrative fields, or work fewer hours on average. This may be due to differing interests or family reasons.
