Great. Sexism in employment application. If you're male, your application is rejected only because you are a male. Isn't this illegal ?
The ingrained bias is that women as a group feel oppressed when they don't receive favorable treatment over men.
"They still earn less money in than a man in the same job role, "
The same source, the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, that shows women earning less per year than men also shows men working more hours per week. There are no sources showing women earning less than men for the same job role. You made that up. If it were true, women would have a huge hiring advantage over men. As is stands, women cost more to employ due to their excessive use of sick leave, unpaid time off , group health care expenses, higher turnover, to name a few.
