Re: All else being equal...

So these evil corporate, sexist pigs aren't the smart, cost-conscious business people they're accused of being? This really should mean that MORE women are employed, since they are cheaper to employ (in theory).

None of the figures quoted really matter without context, specifically hours worked. Many studies have found the gender pay gap is actually a motherhood pay gap, owing to women with children valuing their time off and work flexibility more than men. Comparing single men to single women nearly eliminates the entire gap.
