Female graduates face pay discrimination
It’s better times for those entering the workforce. But despite the year’s increase in job prospects and starting salaries for newly-minted college graduates, the news is not so promising for matriculating females.
According to a report issued by the National Association of Colleges and Employers, women fresh out of college are offered starting salaries that are, on average, 17 percent less than their male counterparts.
It’s a largely inexplicable phenomenon, explained NACE researcher Ed Koc, except that men might be placing more emphasis on a higher starting salary than women.
Koc said. “It’s a prima facie case for discrimination towards women on the part of employers.
For Koc, the most realistic explanation for this discrepancy is supply and demand.
I can tell this article was written by a women because of the back and forth reasoning that contradicted itself. Arguments rooted in logic are not the forte of the fairer sex.
"Men place more emphasis" then "it's discrimination" and back to "supply and demand" as explanations for this inexplicable phenomenon.
I would argue that people are paid what their labor is worth. You are in a mutually beneficial employer/employee relationship. If one side decides that it is no longer beneficial to them then the relationship can be terminated. Womanly crying about it won't change the situation.
If there is a company out there that doesn't pay women what their talent is worth then they limit their available talent pool. Their competitor who doesn't limit themselves this way will hire better people, have less turnover, be more successful and possibly the other company will go out of business.
Note to the trolls: The wife and I will get a kick out of your comments I'm sure.
