Does a Wage Gap Truly Exist? Yes, but barely. That is, assuming that this is referring specifically to gender. When you look at it in context, women make about 97 cents on the dollar compared to men (and when you classify groups more specifically, women are often paid more than men within certain groups). Most people just like to shout about the 33% gap while having no idea what statistic they're actually citing. The fact of the matter is that men are more likely to work full time, full time working men spend more time at work than full time working women on average (about 14% longer), they're almost ten times more likely to die on the job (not all of which are job-related incidents of course), they're much more likely to choose higher paying fields and more likely to pick higher paying practices within those fields, and are far less likely to major in low paying fields (despite also being less likely to benefit from affirmative action in the first place).
