You can't make wrong into right by doing wrong more effectively. It's time for real MEN to stand up and take back our families, our society, and our self respect. It is not a crime to be born a man. It is not a crime to act manly.

$.73 is way overpaid.

I'm in process of building a new home. Yesterday I needed some additional help, so I solicited for workers at the local college.

Two men and one woman showed up. Now my policy has always been to allow women to try out for construction jobs, over the years I have build a goodly number of houses. This female arrived on a construction job wearing sandals with painted toenails. The two guys got right to work, helping move materials, sawing boards, doing the work. She stood around until specifically asked to do some particular thing, and then fiddled with it. She went home at noon for "lunch" and phoned to say that she had to do something with her kid and couldn't return for the afternoon.

Every other woman I've ever hired on a job where real work is involved has acted in a similar manner, though sometimes they last the whole day.

Whenever I hear females whining about earning "only 73 cents" I am reminded of my 30 years of construction experience and the women who have asked for a job. You can't get a female to do any actual work. At $.73 they are way overpaid. Men do all the hard, physical, dirty and sometimes dangerous work. MEN build the homes, produce the food, and provide for the whole society, always have and always will. Women sit around in sandals, maybe behind a desk, paint their toenails and whine because they don't get paid as much as men.

This is right on and the way it is with 98% of women, not putting down women, it is just the way it is. Women and men are different. Women should never had been allowed to vote. What a different society we would have today, it would be far better today.

i beleive some women who can do the job, should be able to.. however.. that being said, it wont happen, women expect more for less, they dont want to work in construction, coz its messy.. then complain that they need equal representation.. i beleive its the womans choice not to get equal pay, 90% of them go have a kid, and leave you in the lurch. thats why they dont have the pay, they chosee the softer jobs, rather than the dangerous one..

There are exceptions...

The one I'll use is at an garage is sak. canada.

I'd have to rate her performance as a little above average when compared to most gophers (where we all start)... She got dirty, did the overtime, made mistakes and demonstrated an ability to learn from those mistakes through either correction or personal pragmatism.

Seven guys worked in the back, five including myself mattered.

The manager was a modern day male feminist took to hating her right away, same with one apprentice. Note: both of their wives looked like they were exposed to a little too much testosterone in adolescences but I doubt that had everything to do with it. They're reasons were never clear but from the emotion given off from them was close to jealousy.

One mechanic was neutral

One mechanic (with incredible ability) didn't think a garage was a womans' place but was always there to give assistance or answer question. She did well with him teaching her. For myself, I could care less. To me she was simply one of the guys (gender neutral meaning). I was annoyed by the petty bickering and discourse by the manager and his mouth piece tried to created.

She eventually quit thanks to a bit of sabotage here and there and always designated the poorest paying jobs. The guy who meets the term of chauvinist almost walked out over the bullshit the manager was doing. The manager was later fired with tiny bit of help...

The moral of the story is, if their smiling, it's for a reason. And I guess, what people believe, say, and do can be entirely different.

That said, I've also seen a stupid arrogant bitch almost get whacked while in the military after pissing off about 750 men. She was a governmental observer with high and mighty attitude and expectations of how she should be treated. I don't think she even understands today how close she came to dying by a mob of very pissed off soldiers. What's probably worse is that she didn't have a clue. Dangerous frigging shit.

Have you any idea why on earth your female construction shirker - sorry, worker - turned up at all? Did she make a mistake and think she was reporting to a shopping mall? Had someone put her up to it? Does she just like watching men sweat and get themselves dirty? Or was she trying to make some point?

Whatever it was, it was certainly not to work. But do you know something? After years of observation, I am slowly coming to a conclusion that may sound amazing, but which consistently fits the facts I see relating to women and real hard work. My conclusion is that the overwhelming majority of women don't actually have the slightest clue as to what men's hard physical work actually consists of. After all, they don't do the work. They don't see it being done. They don't talk about it, they don't bother to listen to men talking about it, and if they blunder into it they get the hell out of it in double quick time. So perhaps they simply don't know anything about it. Could this be the truth of it?

Paul is probably right. Most women have no clue what "work" actually is. The young female who showed up in sandals for a construction job probably thought "work" on a real job was like school or something. $0.73 is way overpaid for the average female.

You have all heard about the 'glass ceiling'. The mythical barrier that stops women getting to senior management, according to feminists.

Well Bob here is talking about the "glass cellar".

What is the worst job you can think of? Garbage collector? Security at a cheap nightclub? All-night truck driver? Builders labourer? Farm labourer? Soldier?

These are dirty, dangerous and low satus jobs, the jobs that often kill people, bit they need to be done. They are all men's jobs, in men's industries.

For every woman killed at work, 20 men are killed. Hard-working men who are paying the mortgage for their families, or disadvantaged men just getting by.

But always men. Men caught in the Glass Cellar.

I have never found one woman who was as productive as me, could work under as much pressure as me, could multi-task like me (and where did this MYTH come from that women can multi-task?), or manage groups more effectively than me.

I'm still trying to find an American woman who is equal to me....and when I do, I will treat her as an equal.

Why should I pretend that a woman who is not

A lie - if repeated often enough - eventually becomes true. That is why you hear about women's "superior abilities" day in, day out. Someone who is superior does not harp about it at all hours of the day, keep that in mind.

i remember once, going for a permanent job, i had been doing it for 15 months, so i knew the system, i knew the people i could work with them.. one problem all women office, so i apply, and i didnt get the job, coz someone was moved sideways from another department can you guess the sex, ...yes female, i hear later on they had to get someone to help her out fulltime.. coz she was useless.. yes 2 people doing the same job full time.. the same job i did on my own.

the other thing that annoys me, when you do get a young woman in a job, more often than not, they go have a kid, and leave to work upto the men, or childfree women.

Denis asked where the multi-tasking myth came from. I think I can tell him. It is exactly the same quality that used to be described as "scatter-brained", i.e. the tendency of women to start to do or concentrate on one thing, only to get distracted and wander off into another, then another, so that they never actually do any job properly from beginning to end. Or take twice as long as men to do it because their minds have taken a rambling detour on the way.

Female multi-tasking is nothing to do with handling several jobs at once. It is just the ability to drive a car while yakking to your passenger about the latest TV sitcom, planning what you are going to have for dinner, remembering you have to pick Johnny up from school at 3 pm but figuring how you can fit in the appointment at the hairdressers first; and all of this while turning left without signalling or using your mirror.

But hey presto, women have dressed up this mental weakness and inability to prioritise, to make it appear like the wonder of the age with which they are going to mentally outstrip us feeble males. Yeah sure, just like they have been doing throughout history...

Sounds to me like you need to pick better women, this woman was clearly a slacker who had no business working anywhere. Understand this, bud, I'm a 28 year old female and worked SEVERAL physcial jobs, including roofing (just after graduation), meat cutting, and currently driving a truck for a local Pepsi bottling plant. Anyone want to tell me about my inability to work there may contact me for my references and I will smugly give them.

The more you people on here love to paint women with a broad brush the more it gives me great pleasure to make you incorrect in my own life.

Good website! Keep up the good work!
And yes feminists are always "bitching" about the .73 cent or whatever pay-gap there might exist in whatever year. However they know very well that this isn't (all) due to discrimination. Actually, very little is accountable for discrimination.

Most important reasons are:
1) Women choose occupations which pay less
2) More women than men tend to choose to work part-time
3) Women hardly negotiate among their salaries, while 70% of men do!
4) Women are in general simply less career-oriented (I know this is a very controversial thing to say but it is true. If you look at polls most of the time it appears women prefer their family and friends above a good career, while men find a good career more important).

The thing is feminists don't want to acknowledge this. They only are crying that it is all due to discrimination.
I wonder how long it will take before governments realise this.

"At $.73 they are way overpaid." I am just curious. According to you, which salary would not be overpaid? Would women be able to buy themselves enough food to remain and a place to live? If not, do you have a suggestion to say to women? Are they able to learn to work and become good workers enough to deserve at least $.80? Or would they be forced to become beggars if they earned exactly the salary that they deserve at their best? What would you do if you were a woman?

Not all jobs require physical strength.

For example, a woman researcher heads a Univ. of MN group that just discovered a breakthrough in understanding ataxia, a debilitating neurological disorder. Scientific researchers spend long hours studying, running experiments, writing for peer- reviewed journals, etc. They use their brains and although their labor isn't like a sweaty bricklayer's, it still yields mighty benefits.

"Women should never had been allowed to vote."

You mean, never "have" been allowed....

Gender and race are irrevelant when it comes to a civil right like voting. It doesn't matter if you like the way a certain person votes. You don't deprive him or her of the right.

Ironically, many men probably vote in a manner you disapprove of. You would punish them?

Why should YOU vote?
