Warren Farrell, Ph.D., a past board member of the National Organization for Women, believed that women were paid less for the “same” work as men. He spent years researching this problem and wrote “Why Men Earn More,” a book I contributed to. Mr. Farrell wondered why, if female labor was so cheap, would anyone hire men?
He found that single women with equal seniority and training were out-earning single men. It was when couples married that women tended to take safer, more comfortable, part-time jobs with flexible hours; jobs that pay less.
Married men worked much longer hours and often at dirty, dangerous and toxic jobs – 93 percent of deaths in the workplace are male, and early deaths based on such jobs are mostly male.
Mr. Farrell also found that when you total work hours at home and away from home men and women contribute equally. For decades, feminists and Democrats have benefited from selling the lie that there is a war on women. Male sacrifice in work and war is ignored.
Never miss a local story.
