According to a recent study published in the May issue of the American Economic Review, the wage gap between men and women is a result of choice and not discrimination.
The wage gap has long been hyped by liberal feminist groups as proof-positive that women are underprivileged in the workplace. But the American Economic Review study shows that for men and women, choice NOT discrimination is the determining factor in wage difference 97 percent of the time. Women choose lower paying, part-time, or flex-time jobs so that they have more time and flexibility to raise children. Perhaps embattled feminists should look more carefully at the stats.
