Do you think it's fair how men get paid more than women for the same job?

I don't think it is fair because women work just as hard as men and should get paid the same.

Some say immigrants are taking 'our' jobs because they are willing to work for less.
Some say its easier for men to get jobs, that we are favoured.
Some say women get paid less for doing the same job as men.
This doesnt quite make sense.

Some of his points are true and it's fun watching him destroy social justice warriors but he is a bit of a contrarian.

The troll within says yes because men have to give all their money to their dates

I kid. But it does sort of seem expected in a way that men should pay for things, or at least buy the girl more things than he receives himself from her even in a relatively 'egalitarian' relationship.

This is factually null.

If you've ever heard of the statistic from the US "Women get paid 77 cents for every dollar a man earns", this is incredibly misleading. Firstly, it averages the earnings of ALL men and women, with no attention paid to the average hours they work, what occupation they work in (yes, some pay more than others!), or the marital status of individuals.

Secondly, have you ever heard of the Equal Pay Act 1970? That's right, it was made the LAW over 45 years ago that men and women in the same job HAVE to be paid exactly the same.

Thirdly, once you control for things like marital status, age (makes a difference, funnily enough) and occupation the gender pay gap disappears almost completely.

Therefore, for you to stand there and say that you're somehow oppressed in the Western world where you have more opportunities that EVER before, is truly insulting to those who gave their lives so women could vote and have the same opportunities as men.

If you want to fight a feminist fight, go to somewhere like Syria where it's actually needed.

Biggest load of rubbish I've heard in my entire life. If women were getting paid less then everybody would just hire women because we know all these big corporate people try their hardest to pay their employees the very least they can.

I've been watching him for a while now and he makes the same arguments in every debate. Outside of pointing out the stupidity of feminists he really isn't good at debating political issues, especially when he tries to justify UKIP's policies.

Of course it wasn't fair ... in the 60s.

It's a thing of the past and does not happen any more because there are laws against it.

What you should be asking is if men are [secretly] more employable and favourable at interviews than women (maternity, pregnancy, hormones, cramps)!
