If the wage gap in favour of men exists

...

then why don't companies just employ women as they are so much cheaper?

Maternity.

And lack of skills and concentration. Would YOU fly in a plane piloted by a woman?

That's a pretty valid point, I don't think I would.

How could a woman steer a plane with her boobs in the way?

Because they need somebody actually capable of doing the job!

Tough one. On the one hand, men have crashed hundreds of planes. On the other hand, the only woman to ever fly a plane crashed.

Stereotypically speaking, women can be great in managerial roles because they are more organized and better in some aspects of decentralized managing and people skills.

Actually, below age 35, women earn(slightly) more than men.

Overall, it's still skewed in favour of older, balder, fatter men, though.

The supposed women-get-paid-less-than-men argument wouldn't exist if companies only employed women. And that is why companies employ both men and women. For some reason they want the women-get-paid-less-than-men conspiracy to exist.

Here's a conspiracy. What if women are in charge of everything and pretend they aren't in order to use the women-get-paid-less-than-men argument in order to get paid more?

- less qualified women workers (ie most women in work are doing shitty easymode jobs)

- misogynistic employers fearing the dreaded maternity leave (from male and female bosses)

- male bosses/skilled employees who are in the position from hereditary causes, (eg family business or being put through rich colleges and given better opportunities due to rich fathers and grandfathers wanting legacy) or that these men go to where they are because of the still widely held notions that men should be the ones providing the income which leads to them training and going for higher paid jobs, while the majority of lower paid/less skilled work goes to women who still treat their job as the "side" job to supplement the household in between child rearing (or plan to supplement when they find the husband to provide for them). this is excepting low paid/less skilled manual labour type work though where men still hold the majority of positions here, not necessarily on physical demands (cause most physical work is easy enough for both sexes with all the mechanised assistance supplied these days), but again just lingering notions of what is "guy" stuff and what is "girl" stuff. most people take equality to just mean that they aren't outright being prevented from doing something (with rational limits) just because of their gender and think everything is okay without realising there are still these ideas guiding how they act en masse that is still bringing a whole gender down (sorry for implying binary, but there's no need to complicate this point)

it's interesting for example that where I work (NHS).
porters & building people are nearly all male (i think they have like 2 women who mostly do painting jobs in a staff of 50)
security is all men

healthcare assistants are mostly women (don't need qualifications for it)
nearly all nurses are women (short course qualifications, flexible hours, hrmmmm)
50:50 for doctors & surgeons, but senior ones are pretty much all men
pretty much all admin departments are women except for anything that is tech or data, in which case it's like all guys and the one creeped on computer girl.
most dept/team (non clinical) managers are women
most senior managers are men and there are 8 directors and only 2 are women though the chief exec is female.


iirc our last figure for staff gender was like 70:30 women:men


now when I talk to a lot women working here, a lot are attracted by the generous leave and the general job security that they aren't worried about being fired if they don't meet some targets and they like having the second income to take care of their kids. while that is nice in one way, it does mean a lot of people don't really give a shit since they just take the "good enough" approach to get through the day rather than what they'd face in private sector where they'd be getting motivated to improve their self and earn more (or end up jobless). in the NHS they don't have to worry so much about work and put their kids/home life first (apparently. i've heard variations of this loads of times from people)

It's also funny to notice how tasks that women excel at, like servicing, cooking, manual labor, all can be automated, while tasks that men excel at (decision making, leading a company) can not.

Just sayin'

Women aren't good at manual labor and nobody is good at decision making.

Somehow also I don't think that automated cooking is such a great idea.

They often do. At a labor level.

Most agricultural and textile labor is done by little brown women and that way, wages/overhead stay low and we can all buy our nikes for cheap!!

Is this not the fault of capitalism? If capitalism were not driving profit margins etc. we would be able to pay everyone a fair wage.

Well yes, obviously, that is one small factor. But it's a lot more complicated than just that. These are global enterprises we are talking about. You don't need to pay fair wages if the people who are underpaid are 1) from a developing country and 2) illiterate. Very few people in developed countries give a shit if their Nikes were made in shitty conditions if it means that the product stays under $200. Those at the top of the ladder gain much more from outsourcing labor to poor countries than customers, however, so everyone loses (including companies that do have proper labor practices) except a small handful of the already overpaid.
