Do Women Make Less Than Men?

A lot of people get irritated with feminism. Seen by many as spurred by a cadre of disaffected women who are lashing out for their inability to get laid, the modern feminist movement still encounters the same kinds of hurdles it faced since the days of the Seneca Falls Convention. Since the modern feminist movement took root in the 1970s, many today grudgingly remark to feminists that they got what they wanted and should shut their traps. Like an irritant in the eye, feminism is something that many want to clear out of the public consciousness.

However, has the modern feminist movement achieved its aims enough to warrant an abatement of the fight? Should women be happy with the "equality" that was so gratefully bestowed upon them? Well, perhaps there is no better indicator than differences in occupational pay. After all, if women aren't equal to men on this basic footing, then one can't exactly argue against discrimination in a fundamental sense.

The following figures were compiled by data found in the 2006 US Bureau of Labor study entitled "Median Weekly Earnings for Full-Time Wage and Salary Workers by Detailed Occupation and Sex."

Women earn an average of $71 less per week than men (11% less)

Compared to men in the following occupational sectors, women earn the following per week on average:

Management Occupations: $201 less, 18% difference

Business & Financial Occupations: $102 less, 11% difference

Computer and Mathematical Occupations: $123 less, 11% difference

Architecture and engineering Occupations: $183 less, 16% difference

Life, Physical, and Social Science Occupations: $112 less, 11% difference

Community and Social Services Occupations: $37 less, 5% difference

Legal Occupations: $243 less, 21% difference

Education, Training, and Library Occupations: $56 less, 7% difference

Arts, Design, Entertainment, Sports, and media Occupations: $108 less, 13% difference

Healthcare Practitioner and Technical Occupations: $45 less, 5% difference

Healthcare Support Occupations: $6 less, 1% difference

Protective Services Occupations: $136 less, 20% difference

Food Preparation and Serving Related Occupations: $16 less, 4% difference

Building and Grounds Cleaning and Maintenance Occupations: $43 less, 11% difference

Personal Care and Service Occupations: $19 less, 5% difference

Sales and Related Occupations: $141 less, 22% difference

Office and Administrative Support Occupations: $15 less, 3% difference

Service Occupations: $32 less, 8% difference

Farming, Fishing, and Forestry Occupations: $45 less, 12% difference

Construction and Extraction Occupations: $86 less, 14% difference

Installation, Maintenance, and Repair Occupations: $45 less, 6% difference

Production Occupations: $127 less, 23% difference

Transportation and Material Moving Occupations: $142 less, 26% difference

In conclusion, it's perfectly apparent that even in 20th Century America, women make less money than men in no less than every sector of the economy. Rather embarrassing.

it doesnt seem to me that women have a single thing to complain about given that they cannot be drafted. the fact that the government can force me, an adult male, to die for my country while granting all the same civil rights to women that they do to me is outrageous. equal rights = equal contribution to this country. i dont understand why feminist groups do not lobby congress to change this. equal rights means equal rights, not just complaining about those inequalities that are not of benefit to you.

Greg said...

Question: Since these numbers are weekly averages do they take into account that women are more likely to work part time jobs while raising children, rather than full time? I would imagine that even if only 10% more women then men worked part time that it could make up a good portion of that $71 a week difference.

Wage differences according to this chart seem to support this argument as those professions that are service based, those that pay by the hour rather than salary, have less wage disparity.

I don't dispute that there is a wage disparity, however, without knowing what the metrics are for determining weekly rates we cannot blindly accept that the wage disparity is a great as it shows.
