Please elaborate
First, i don't believe there is technically a "pay gap" in the world at large, because we never compare apples to apples, and if you look at pay per productive hour worked at the same job with equal experience, you'll find the gap closes really fast.
Check out this and this. Even the Huffington Posts admits that career choices and women's life aspirations play the main role in the supposed "pay gap".

In fact, the 'pay gap" is largely due to 3 factors: 1) Women prefer certain jobs and degrees with a lower ceiling (women prefer jobs that incorporate socializing, men prefer jobs that incorporate machinery, etc.), 2) Women prioritize family over career (thus generally working fewer hours), and 3) Due to certain factors (childbirth/pregnancy, and other obvious reasons), even at jobs that do require more productive hours, women tend to miss ALOT more time over their career at their job.

In Lakewood, this is more pronounced than most places, as the average family has many more children than they do elsewhere. Women also get married younger than the national average. Therefore, women don't work nearly as many hours as they do elsewhere (as they have a large family to raise), as well as take a significant amount more time off (due to childbirth/pregnancies).

Additionally, college is frowned upon in Lakewood, more so than other frum communities, although the men usually end up with a BA anyway which they obtained through Yeshiva.

Any ideas where to buy large disposable salad containers? I found “harder” ones that at 4 for $2 at Amazing Savings but I want a bunch at a cheaper price  and not reusable?
I am sometimes accused of overthinking things. I am still mulling over whether that accusation has merit.

Only 10K?! At the place being discussed on the Dont Swipe for Others thread, the raises came fast and furious. I saw guys getting pay doubled within 6 months.
Is this the same business which you had considered to be mismanaged?

Then presumably this isn’t indicative of the regular market?

I think they're cards that have pictures on it that are supposed to convey the message that smartphones are bad.

Wouldn't it be cool if we can have a seaplane to take off from the lake/airport and land someplace close to Brooklyn? Or even helicopter transportation
