Why Men Earn More
The Startling Truth Behind the Pay Gap and What Women Can Do About it
By (author) Farrell
Why Men Earn More by Farrell
Book DescriptionIf men really are paid more than women for the same amount of work, why would anyone hire a man? Warren Farrell asked himself that question, wondering whether the assumption of unequal pay is really true. Following years of research, he now presents his surprising and controversial answer, arguing that women almost always have exactly the same opportunities as men, but make choices that keep them from earning more. Why Men Earn More fearlessly debunks traditional assumptions, and presents 25 of these key workplace choices, including the decision to take more hazardous jobs, enter technical fields, work longer hours, and many more. Investigating the implications and trade-offs people make, Why Men Earn More forces readers to rethink their strategies, and shows how they can take control of their wage-earning potential.
