No
At my company they are even overpaid
They earn the same money as men, but don't need to work the same

Globally yes, but in case by case basis not always. So I went with 'Hard to Say'

Re: Do you think women are generally underpaid?

In the US I would say overall yes women are paid less than their male counter-parts. Various reasons for this though but it isn't impossible to find women who are paid much more than men either.

Re: Do you think women are generally underpaid?

I don't know about elsewhere, but in the U.S. it's a demonstrable fact, unless you're of the opinion that women deserve to be paid less than men.

Re: Do you think women are generally underpaid?

It depends on where, what industry and a lot of other factors. Globally, yes, woman are probably underpaid.

However, it's very difficult to get a handle on by how much because both sides love to lie with statistics.

In the US, the 78% figure is low because it doesn't compensate for industry differences or hours worked, and the "only a couple cents for comparable work" is probably too because how do you really, accurately adjust for "comparable work" when women are still kept out of certain industries and sectors largely by a combination of discrimination and family responsibilities, which they are more likely to take on than men.

I also think it's important to recognize that stay-at-home moms (or dads), by freeing a spouse up to work longer hours or in certain industries are also generating/earning income, which never gets calculated into those figures.

Re: Do you think women are generally underpaid?

However certain jobs do discriminate against men, I was a victim of it myself recently Well I think its a temporary thing with the company but at 3 recent recruitment events the company put not a single male candidate through to the second round.

Re: Do you think women are generally underpaid?

If a man and a woman works the same hours for the same job with the same productivity, they should be paid the same.

However, a childless man shouldn't be stuck with some work that needs to be done because a mother is taking her kids to the doctor for the afternoon while they are still paid the same. A difference in pay is then only fair.

Another theory is that women aren't agressive enough during the job interview.

Re: Do you think women are generally underpaid?

I have trouble believing women are generally overpaid in China when they are significantly underpaid in all the countries surrounding China.

There are statistics on this, so it's an obvious yes.

Also took a gender and economics class at my university
