Equal-Pay Day Debunked in Three Minutes



Text  



Today is what feminist groups have dubbed “Equal-Pay Day,” their day to raise awareness of how women are regularly paid less than men for the same work. Women, they claim, have had to work this long into 2013 to make up for last year’s wage gap.

The problem for “Equal-Pay Day” fans is that the premise of this pseudo holiday is bogus.

Women actually aren’t paid 77 percent for doing the same job. Take three minutes to watch this video just released by the Independent Women’s Forum which explains the statistics behind the wage gap and tells women the good news that they aren’t doomed to be victims of the patriarchy: It’s the choices that we make that will primarily determine how much we earn.
