National Coalition for Men: President Obama Speech Spreads More Myths About Gender Pay Gap

Obama Ignores Department of Labor Study that Proves the Gender Pay Gap A Woman’s Option

For Immediate Release

LOS ANGELES/EWORLDWIRE/Jan. 29, 2010 — National Coalition for Men (NCFM) Spokesman Marc Angelucci affirms that during President Barack Obama’s State of the Union Address on Wednesday evening, the President ignored “overwhelming evidence showing the pay gap is the result of choices made by men and women, including how many hours they work, the type of work, flexibility, commute distances, physical risk, and other factors.”

In his presentation, President Obama said: “We’re going to crack down on violations of equal pay laws - so that women get equal pay for an equal day’s work.” In stating this, says Angelucci, “President Obama helped spread the myth that the gender pay gap is due to sex discrimination.

Angelucci points to the Department of Labor (DOL) which recently funded a major study on on the causes of the pay gap. The results showed what earlier studies also found - the pay gap reflects women’s privilege of having more options than men - to stay home full-time, or to work part-time or full-time. (’http://www.consad.com/content/reports/Gender%20Wage%20Gap%‘).

The DOL result was further supported in the book, Why Men Earn More,” by Warren Farrell, Ph.D. Farrell examined 25 career/life choices men and women make - hours and commute times, among others - that lead to men earning more and women having more balanced lives. Data showed how men in surveys prioritize money while women prioritize flexibility, shorter hours, shorter commutes, and other factors conducive to being primary parents - an option still mostly denied to men. The book proposes that is why never-married childless women generally outearn their male counterparts.

As Farrell explained, there are many careers, including science fields, where women outearn men. Today, female U.S. corporate directors outearn men. (’http://www.reuters.com/article/domesticNews/idUSN0752118220071107?feed...‘).

Women between ages 21 and 30 working full-time earned 117% of men’s wages. (’http://www.nytimes.com/2007/08/03/nyregion/03women.html?_r=1&oref=slog…‘).

“Women simply have more options than men to be primary parents, and many of them exercise that option rather than work long, stressful hours,” reported Angelucci. “That is why 57 percent of female graduates of Stanford and Harvard left the workforce within 15 years of entry into the workforce.” (’http://edition.cnn.com/2005/BUSINESS/03/15/optout.revolution/‘).

“This is an option few men have. Try being a single male and telling women on the first date that you want to stay home instead of going to work.”

“Worse,” said Angelucci, “Obama ignores gender disparities impacting men in virtually all aspects of our society including homelessness, work-related deaths and injuries, excessive work hours, unemployment, child custody, criminal sentencing, mortality rates, mental illness, suicide deaths, dropouts, delinquency, education, military deaths, and more.

NCFM calls on Obama to be truthful about the gender pay gap consistent with his March 2009 memo insisting on scientific integrity, and also calls on Obama to stop ignoring issues affecting men and boys. “Our elected officials should help all of us, not just women,” said Angelucci. “There are still many of us who love our sons as well as our daughters.”
