- Chase fnWL34Yeah right. Chase gave lip service to it, but in the email admitted that there was a wage gap and excused it based on performance. Which is subjected and calibrated despite saying it isn't. Listen to what I say but don't watch too closely what I'm actually doing.
- Eh. Negotiators will still hop around knowing there's money on the table and companies will pay if they want results. Nothing will change.
- I’m wondering if there is still a gender pay gap when adjusting for qualifications and experience.
A lot of industries have only recently seen an influx of female entrants, which, statistically would drive down the average # of years experience for female applicants INITIALLY.
Is this movement trying to equalize pay in spite of this, or is this being taken into consideration?Mar 1, 2018 1
- ^I'm certainly not an expert on the data here but I remember reading that overall (not just tech), women coming out of college are making more than men. Men are now going to college less than women. You may be right that this may be an experience or that we have remnants of old expectations. There are still a ton of 50+ yr olds in the workforce who started when expectations were slightly different. 10-15 more years may see it naturally even out.
- Credit Karma JohmyMeasures that help prevent companies from taking advantage of women, will also help men overall. Pay and level transparency, better family leave or flexibility, etc are in every employees interest.
The attitude of bros in tech make them useful idiots in companies expecting unrealistic work-life balances and paying people less just because they can get away with it.
This is what the Women’s Lib movement of the 70s understood but today’s identity and diversity based attempts to address sexism (and of course the willful denial of reality in favor of temper-tantrum resentment by conservatives) misses.
