 “People are wearing a lot of red today, and they're posting #GoRedForWomen selfies. It's the 12th annual National Wear Red Day, which takes place the first Friday in February to raise awareness for women's heart health”. Huh?

I happen to be wearing red today, I can pretend it wasn't a coincidence if you'd like.

Are you totally opposed to a free market?

Employers will (and should) pay (or at least bargain for) the least they can for the quality of work they get, and employees should insist on (or at least bargain for) the highest pay they can get. It's a color blind, gender blind, process. It's called a free market.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

I am not opposed to a free market. But if you think there is no implicit bias here then you are fooling yourself.

I keep hearing here how the Chassidish community has a poverty/undermployment/etc problem, that we don't have enough people with high paying jobs.

I think I'm going to start a movement demanding equal pay for chassidim.


And if you think this is a problem with a lack of qualifications,
if you think there is no implicit bias here then you are fooling yourself.

Your first sentence has nothing to do with your second sentence.

why not? Chassidim are making $.074 on the dollar compared to non-chassidim (ok, the number is made up but but you get the point.)

I demand chassidic wage equality.

How about we start with Chassidim women compared to men. Scratch that since women are probably not allowed to do the same jobs.  :)

I think you might be proving my point here.

Actually just the opposite. My point was not about wages.

Well whatever your point was, you've (inadvertantly?) pointed out that there's a disparity in wages here. Which I think proves my point.

Regardless, I'm gonna do my part now to close the wage gap by getting off ddf and getting some work done :)
ETA: Although if wearing a red shirt would help instead I'm all for doing that instead. I think it's a lot easier.

A disparity in wages is a given and did not need proving. Now why is there a disparity?

Well obviously it must be bias/discrimination.
