Prof: Statistics Are ‘NOT Analytical’ And Wage Gap Is ‘Very Real’

A professor at a Canadian university recently told a student who wanted to argue against the existence of the gender wage gap that “the wage gap is very real” and statistics are “NOT analytical.”

    Well, that’s that then – we don’t need science or experimentation or evidential analysis anymore because Professor Train has all the answers. Hurrah! No more research or research grants – we’re entering the post research society!

    People actually pay to go to Ryerson?

    • Mark Matis

      I hate to break this to you, but through the Federal Government – and possibly your state government as well, depending on where you live – YOU pay for these people to go to Ryerson. This fits in very well with government policy for at least the past twenty-eight years.

        I know, I know. But this poor girl paid an extra 7k to be taught this nonsense.

    They should not allow student loans or government grants to degrees in social studies like these. All they are going to graduate with is a piece of paper that barely guarantees them a job in a fast food joint…maybe.

      If not there are still toilets that need to be cleaned.

    • Will Quest

      Yessssssss . but a job in a fast-food joint seeped in ‘Attitude’ ……. flipping burgers with a SJW temper….. would you like fries with that shake-down ….

      You are a very kind man, you allow pants. I insist on short skirts 6 ” above the knee and ankle strap or wedge heels only.

      • Clink9

        You humans, you clothe your women and put them in positions of authority?

  • Not analytical?

    Proof is SO patriarchal.

    Typical leftist… “More government is the answer!”, “You can’t trust government data!”
    Make up your effing mind, beyotch!!!

    Once people understand what they mean by “wage gap”, they will know what they are dealing with. Since there is no wage gap when men and women perform the exact same jobs at the same level, they compare unrelated jobs for their wage gap. I have seen this far too many times where for example nurses do not earn as much as doctors or specialists (correctly so) they argue that the difference in pay is due to sexism. They are incapable of finding a single example of men and women doing the same job at the same level where the women are paid less.

    • Uncommunist

      It is in fact meant to incite hatred towards males that work … and that is illegal according to their standards, not mine.

      The only place where I know that women are paid less for the exact same job would be those chicks working for the Democrat party come election time.

      Do you remember a thing called pay equity from about twenty five to thirty years ago?
      It was a concept where the government would compare unrelated jobs like nursing and construction and then assign a value to them.
      This value was then supposed to be what these jobs should be paid.
      Never mind the market.
      The intent was to make it law on order to correct the supposed wage gap.
      I first heard about it when I was briefly auditing a course in the faculty of management (formerly commerce).
      It was then that I walked away.
      I couldn’t define it then but my spidey sense told me to have nothing to do with them.

      • Alain

        Yes, I remember and am fully aware of how it worked. Again the “pay equity” thing was based on the claim that women were getting paid less completely ignoring that they were comparing apples to bananas. Any group/classification that was made up of mainly women (clerks, nurses, etc.) was considered to have been discriminated against due to the fact that they did not earn as much as managers, ingeneers, scientists, doctors, etc which had more men than women employees. Never mind that the jobs could not be compared to completely different ones. So the whole thing was based on the lie of a nonexistant wage gap between men and women.
