    Yes no one does it because it's illegal.

    At least I did not choose one of those crazy YouTubers who live in the same echo chambers the people they criticise also live in. But as far as I know myth or not i can't really do anything about it I can't really criticise the comic for choosing to mention them. But as far as I know this comic is engaged in very delicate business.

    all i can say is that they are not supposed to. and that based on the evidence that i have seen, there is no proof of it, at least not in the united states

    Google searched:

    "Gender Pay Gap USA 2017"

    Found these pretty easily:

    http://money.cnn.com/2017/04/04/pf/e...gap/index.html
    https://www.cnbc.com/2017/08/07/gend...losing-in.html
    https://www.bls.gov/cps/cpsaat39.htm
    http://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank...pay-gap-facts/

    I understand that pay is a complex issue (especially when you factor in leaves, experience, the gender ratio for the higher executive positions, and how these gaps are calculated), but to say there's no proof seems a bit...haphazard.

    cnn is not a credible source. most of these statistics just look at the difference between women and men, they don't specify at which jobs, just that men are overall paid more, and this is due to the fact that men get degrees in engineering and many women choose liberal arts or gender studies. what they're not looking at is a male plumber and a female plumber. just men and women as a whole

    I wonder why it's called the "pay gap" and not the "income gap".

    I believe the majority of people disagreeing with the pay gap just don't communicate that initial point very well. There is obviously income disparity in given situations, they're just trying to communicate that the main reason isn't simply because one person has a penis and the other has a vagina.

    lol, seriously? cnn has been busted fabricating things. they've had to issue apologies due to it. if you want to say fox has an agenda, i would never argue, but mainstream media is not that credible

    The pay gap issue is delicate, and there are numerous studies dating back to the early 90ís that show a supposed gender pay gap. However, Iíve also found numerous studies dating back almost as far that refute the gender pay gap, as far as it being the sole result of discrimination. What I find interesting is that the studies that control for more variables all but eliminate the gap, and the most recent study I found, conducted by the University of Chicago, showed a gender pay gap among Uber drivers. Male drivers earned 7% more than female drivers; now, why is that? Well, they concluded that men worked longer shifts, worked more profitable hours (i.e. drunk passengers), and drove faster than women on average. There was nothing in Uber's policy or system that created an environment where women were intentially paid less.

    I wonder if X-Men Red will spark so many debates with each issue.

    Well said.
    ultimately, there is probably evidence for and against any argument

    I think you could post "There are twelve inches in a foot" and someone would reply with "That's just the liberal media lying" or "That's an alt right conspiracy".
