As I said to myseteryman I believe the problem is not sexism as such, it is economical. Women of breeding age are more expensive. Becuase they go off and have kids and you still have to pay them.

They are, to a point, but the gap never really closes after that fact either. Men become more expensive in terms of insurance as they get older but as far as I know there are not gains in income to start to balance things out.

Not saying there are not various factors that go into the gender wage gap. Most of them are more economical, but those economics are based on gender. Women have the babies, men do not. That automatically puts an inequality into the question and brings into question various costs around having a kid. There are costs that are going to face women more than men.

Too often, in my view, we look at this as it is the problem of the person. But it seems we only like to look at it that way when it is not impacting us per se (not saying you are saying this, just saying that seems to be the way of some in the discourse).

Probably one of the better articles on it. At least according to this and other summaries a fair bit of the gap cannot be attributed to known factors.
