NCFM PRESS RELEASE calls on Candidates to Stop Spewing Gender Pay Gap Myth

NCFM calls on Candidates to Stop Spewing Gender Pay Gap Myth

The National Coalition For Men (NCFM) calls on Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, and all other candidates to be honest about the gender “pay gap.” Claiming that women “earn less” without explaining why is misleading and dishonest. The Department of Labor funded a study that showed the pay gap is mostly due to choices, not discrimination.

Before women get married and have kids, they earn the same as men, and are also beneficiaries of quality of life choices that favor health and longevity as reflected by statistics on industrial deaths. After having kids, women make additional quality of life choices different from males, such as more flexible hours and less managerial positions. Women have more options than men when it comes to being primary parents. In fact, over half of female graduates of Stanford and Harvard left the workforce within 15 years of entry into the workforce. This is not an option for most men. http://edition.cnn.com/2005/BUSINESS/03/15/optout.revolution/

Men are either primary breadwinners or on the streets. Consequently, they make the vast majority of homeless adults, job-related deaths, suicides, and incarcerated persons.

Women who were never married and are childless earn more than their male counterparts. And as corporate executives, women now earn more than men. http://www.reuters.com/article/2007/11/07/us-boardroom-women-idUSN0752118220071107?feedType=R

    If you are unhappy with the way the gender pay gap is publicised, take a look at the detail behind the well known “Global Gender Gap Index”. It is quite staggering that anyone takes it seriously. Women are “entitled” to live 6% longer than men. If medical science and/or lifestyle choices decrease the life expectancy gap to less than 6%, this index counts it as discrimination against women!!

    Lies of this magnitude should disqualify a candidate from running. Not by law of course, but by a societal moral standard.
    Thank you.
