    Maybe he did so for good reason.

    No legislation yet has closed the gender wage gap in the U.S. — not the 1963 Equal Pay for Equal Work Act, not Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, not the 1978 Pregnancy Discrimination Act, not the 1991 amendments to Title VII, not affirmative action, not diversity, not the Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, not the countless state and local laws and regulations, not the horde of overseers at the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission….. Nor would the Paycheck Fairness Act have worked.

    None of the legislation pushed by pay-equity advocates works because the advocates continue to overlook the effects of this female AND male behavior:

    Despite the 40-year-old demand for women’s equal pay, millions of wives still choose to have no pay at all. In fact, according to Dr. Scott Haltzman, author of “The Secrets of Happily Married Women,” stay-at-home wives, including the childless who represent an estimated 10 percent, constitute a growing niche. “In the past few years,” he says in a CNN August 2008 report at http://tinyurl.com/6reowj, “many women who are well educated and trained for career tracks have decided instead to stay at home.” (“Census Bureau data show that 5.6 million mothers stayed home with their children in 2005, about 1.2 million more than did so a decade earlier….” at http://tinyurl.com/qqkaka. This may or may not reflect a higher percentage of women staying at home than in the previous decade. But if the percentage is higher, perhaps it’s because feminists and the media have told women for years that female workers are paid less than men in the same jobs, and so why bother working if they’re going to be penalized and humiliated for being a woman.)

    As full-time mothers or homemakers, stay-at-home wives earn zero. How can they afford to do this while in many cases living in luxury? Because they’re supported by their husband.

    If millions of wives can accept no wages and live as well as their husbands, millions of other wives can accept low wages, refuse overtime and promotions, take more unpaid days off, avoid uncomfortable wage-bargaining (http://tinyurl.com/45ecy7p) — all of which lower women’s average pay. They can do this because they are supported by a husband who must earn more than if he’d chosen never to marry — which is how MEN help create the wage gap. (If the roles were reversed so that men raised the children and women raised the income, men would average lower pay than women.)

    By the way, the next Equal Occupational Fatality Day is in 2020. The year 2020 is how far into the future women will have to work to experience the same number of work-related deaths that men experienced in 2009 alone.

    1. The article mentions the “violence against women act” as an example of women getting preferential treatment. Despite the name, the law itself is in fact gender-neutral, as of the 2006 amendment.

    2. The part about women choosing not to work as much, or working in less demanding jobs, is a red herring. The issue addressed by the law is people being denied equal pay for equal work. Nobody is saying that a part-time receptionist should earn as much as a brain surgeon.

    It’s your own damn fault you married a gold-digger.

    Publishers Weekly describes Haltzman’s woman-hating tome as follows:  “Haltzman’s promise of stress-free marital bliss is attractive, but his advice grates, recalling the worst sort of paternalistic misogyny. After explaining that men’s worst communication habits are the result of genetics, Haltzman goes on to say that men need to be nurtured, require acknowledgement for their efforts and only get married for sex.” 

    As for me, I never “lived off” a man in my life, I always was an equal contributor, I never took off any time for children etc, I pick up the slack everywhere I’ve ever worked for the women AND men who have child care responsibilities, and I have been the breadwinner of my household for 17 years.  

    I want and deserve equal pay for equal work in a male dominated field, and I get it.  What’s important is that ALL women should be paid equal pay for equal work.

    Especially when they (MRAs) often make the claim that it’s the woman’s own damn fault for marrying someone who is abusive.

  • plume-assassine

    So, let me get this straight, “MaleMatters” – because some women are content to be homemakers/primary caregivers without pay, then that means the rest of the women who are in the work force (performing the same jobs as men) don’t deserve equal pay for equal work? Smells like some bullshit to me!

     

    Also, to your last point: because men suffer more work-related deaths than women is due to the fact that society discriminates against women who try to participate in the more “dangerous” fields. Girls are socialized from a very young age to only seek out safe/nurturing jobs, if they are to have jobs at all.

    What piece of crap…

    The work-related deaths that men suffer do not happen in “dangerous” fields but instead are mostly TRAFFIC ACCIDENTS.
