Male v. Female Income

Very interesting.....


"It seems rather obvious that women, who began in earnest to enter the workforce around the same time as male incomes began to stagnate, have soaked up any additional personal income that men might have earned otherwise. It’s unclear how significant the impact of pro-women affirmative action policies are in these numbers, but all large companies are under intensive pressure to “equalize” salaries and in particular to promote women through their ranks. There obviously has to be some impact on men’s incomes, and perhaps enough to show up in these graphs."
 A million conclusions can be drawn from all this, point being though, at the end of the day, male wages are down and whether this is due to the line of work men have traditionally done, the influence of feminism, or both---what is going to be done to help male income get back on track? Of course the popular solution is to shame the men and tell them to "man up" and join more service oriented jobs and while at it marry one of the many "good girls". This is not a solution, but a  PR opportunity for women to brag on their superiority. How smart and savvy they think they are that they have been able to keep up and adapt to the economy, whereas, the supposed "rulers of society", have not. Nothing can be done  to help men, until this attitude is first fixed. I suggest a serving of humble pie and then hopefully a renewed spirit for helping men. Even if wages for men do not recover for a long, long time, the least women can do is not rub salt on the wound, but be a support for one who is in a situation they did not ask for.

These figures include the self-employed (businesspeople, doctors, lawyers, plumbers, etc) whose income is affected by how good they are, and how hard they work.

If men's incomes have fallen, I suggest they work harder and better, if they want more money. Putting aside the video games may help.

Why is it even a problem if women earn more than men? It is what it is.

Also, could you point me to an affirmative action law that says women must earn a higher wage than a man for a comparable position?

It's possible that it's just women rising, which isn't bad in and of itself. But affirmative action has gotten out of control; political writer Ilana Mercer, in fact, has just released a book about how it's brought South Africa to tyranny and mass murder.

WHAT is your problem? No matter what, it's men's fault.

Uh Anon0836,

It's difficult to work harder & better if you're not given the CHANCE to do so-duh! As a former denizen of Corporate America, affirmative action in favor of women is the rule; if you're a guy, you're SOL. For example, in my old office, EVERY POSITION OF AUTHORITY (except the division head) was occupied by a woman-every one! One of my colleagues (a biker chick, BTW) told me that, if I wanted to be promoted there, then I'd better have boobs & a vagina; otherwise, I could forget it.

Then why haven't you started your own business?

Men who say "duh" rarely get ahead in business.

@Anon

So, I assume you consistently condemn(ed) the endless fembot whining about women "earning 70 cents on the dollar compared to men", right? And that you take the view that it's not a problem if men earn more than women? And that you can point to proof that you've taken these positions?

Of course, I jest. You're a troll, or a man-hater, or a man-hating troll. Get lost.

You gotta love the tone of a superior woman. Ugh. You anons really are all the same, right?

Anyone hear the news? NOW is announcing that they feel sorry for Anthony Weiner. Just goes to show: femmies really don't care about women, they just care about liberal interests.

Actually, it was the head of the Brooklyn/Queens division of NOW who spoke about Weiner.

NOW has about 250,000 members.

Nice post. Hopefully you will make a post about liberal Christians and heretical Christians and how they ruin the Christian church. Liberals, neoconservatives and libertarians calling themselves "conservatives" makes me shiver. I don't go to a lot of churches anymore because of them and I have to be careful where I go nowadays. We have new agers, Easternphiles (religion), atheists, agnostics, feminists, gays and transgenders whom call themselves "Christian".

The fact that it was a NOW president says a lot to me. Plus, Janine what's-her-name, the wry Goth-like actress from comedies like "The Truth about Cats and Dogs", also defended him.

Not all feminists are the same, but MOST are. Tell me NAWALT, yes, but not NAFALT.

Some homosexual people do struggle with faith in God and their conditions.

You may be right. I don't know all feminists, or even most.

What's missing from the data is the contribution of the respective sexes TO GDP.

It must make life pretty simple to write your conclusions and then find the data that fits.

You forget that male wages started going down in the 70s. Right about the time that the US started importing goods from Japan. Right now there is a guy in China that can do any manufacturing job in the US for about a tenth the price. American men have to compete with men from Asia and India. They did not have to before the 70s.
