Stats show a definite gender pay gap. Men who are not wealthy feel inferior to men who are. But, being afraid of powerful males, they take out their frustrations on weaker females. All men and all women should unite to defeat the rich people who make them suffer!
My problem is simple: I just know better than everyone-else!

I agree.

In Western society it is uncommon for anyone to ask their colleagues how much they make. A man takes a job because he gets the job, not because he will make more than a woman could. If men tend to have higher salaries it must be because their productivity is higher than a woman's.

This productivity difference is being levelled down to some extent by feminist inventions such as paternity leave. If men can take paternity leave, so be it and then women can command the same salary level.

But in some occupations, a man simply outperforms a woman and in some a woman outperforms a man. these differences need to be taken into consideration.

In some European countries, new laws obligate employers to reveal average salaries for different jobs in their company and show who gets higher pay - men or women. I do not know if this represents "progress".
