Why do women still earn less than men?

In my opinion, women deserve no less than men.Read the article under Van Berkel but, but very carefully.

The fact that women get less money is attributable to the given that they work less hours.My female colleagues really deserve the same as I do. If they earn less, that’s because they work less hours.

A male physician sits in the same wage scale as a female physician.A male kitchen worker in the same scale as a female kitchen assistant.

My daughter works at the NS and deserves exactly the same as her male colleague.Two girlfriends work in education and deserve exactly the same as their male counterparts. That they get less money is because they don’t work fulltime time, and those men do.

In short, I would now like to see evidence that equal cases are unevenly rewarded.Attention, equal cases: as many hours, as many years of work, equal diplomas, equal tasks, etc.

We can have a lot of swabs, but in this I have to be a little more direct.
In the world The advantage is still for the man.I am probably commenting on this, however, as a trans-woman I have seen both sides.

On a global scale, you are worse off as a woman. This is not new.Still his words that describe something feminine are negative (what are you anyway!). And occupations where women are mainly employed are less rewarded. A striking example is the appreciation of teachers. Where in the past a schoolmaster took a very honorable position in the society.
Just look at the name of the profession, nowadays we try to speak more often of teachers, but the feminine form in the popularly is Schooljuf, or maybe just Juf.Juf is not even a full-fledged “madam” and master is clearly more than just Sir, it forces respect. Does Juf do that too?

Society is still very sexist.And the question of why women usually earn less is often dismissed with “women should negotiate better during their application process”, or “women are more often absent by menstruation”, or “they choose more often to care for their children” and in one of the Answers to this question “we have to calculate maternity leave in the salary”. It has more to do with how we educate our girls and especially our boys.

Guys don’t have it easy with that.To satisfy the stereotyping you have to give up a lot. Why shouldn’t boys play with dolls? Why shouldn’t boys cry? If as a boy you like to dance ballet, why is that laughable? Why do we laugh when men have women’s clothes? That also has to do with sexism, because men should not subordinate themselves to the women’s picture.

Women are not considered to be full-fledged in the labour market.If they did, companies would take more women. Finally, you can pay them less (given your question “Why do women still earn less than men?“).The main reason is therefore sexism. I still see a lot of sexism, often wiped out by men. My grandmother remembers, however, that as a married woman she could not take out a mortgage or buy a car. (Act Competence-Wikipedia).So recently, the legal inequality between men and women.

I would like to investigate whether it really is. Women really deserve less than men.At the moment this is still so. In the Government the difference is still 10% and in the business world this is 20% (figures 2014, Research 2016[1)

There is a drop going from the size of this difference.However, on a global scale, the problem is greater. Young women deserve more than young men, mainly because they are higher educated nowadays and thus receive higher paid jobs. I also have a positive look at Dutch society. And no, I don’t think women should earn more than men for the same job as compensation. I hope that in the near future we will realise that men and women are completely equal in all aspects of the labour market and that reward is also taken into account.

[1 do men and women get equal wages for equal work?

The negotiating position of young women (compared to men) is weakened by the need to calculate work interruption for pregnancy.

Another cause could be that women-in my experience-make more insalarial demands (than men).Such as work room equipment/color, permission for coffee maker in the room, etc.
