In order for the numbers to have any meaning whatsoever, you have to assume that women do the exact same job in the exact same way and everything else is exactly the same. Apples to apples. OK, I wave my magic wand and your wish is granted. Everything is identical.

You now own a business. If you can get the exactly same labor done for 77 cents on the dollar, why in the hell would you pay a dollar? You'd be out of business in a heartbeat. If our assumption (apples to apples) is correct, then there wouldn't be a man working in the entire country. Every position would be filled with a woman at 77% labor rate.

Since this clearly is not the case and never has been, one can only conclude that the basic assumption (apples to apples) is bullshit. I have no idea where the differences might be (actually I do, but it doesn't matter) but there's no way around the fact that there must be some difference.
O FFS. I'm warped back to the 1930's.

Excuse me for saying. Consider it a bad intro to: 'Have fun, I'm outta here, playing with myself, or anything else I can think of instead of having to read this thread.'
