Wait a second....

But if women earn more at some job, that means it is SEXISM.  That is the only answer.  Because, if men earn more, well, THAT is SEXISM, right?

Oh I see, it only goes one way.  Cool.

But those jobs are hard!

I think I'd rather continue blogging about the gender pay gap.

Second oldest profession at least, Subby. I mean, if you're going to trade sex for fish or whatnot, then fisherman has to be the older profession.

I am also curious as to the WHY there is disparity.  When men earn more than women it is because sexism/old boys club exclusions/etc.   But what are the reasons for when it is reversed?

Is it diversity quotas?  In order to have a female on staff you need to pay more to attract them to the profession?  Are they comparing positions or fields?  If you are a construction company and your management and up are say 50/50 Male/Female ratio but your laborers are mostly men, then lumping all those "construction" jobs could throw the average up for females (assuming managers/sales/accountants/etc make more than laborers)

There may be more housekeeping businesses with female CEO's/ Owners, if their salaries are considered, it could look like woman make more then men.
