Why women are paid less?

Hailey, 

"When you dig deeper you also find that women working in supply chain are paid on average 20 percent less than their male counterparts for the same position; this has to change."

What is the reason why women are paid less? They receive the same education and they do the same work. Many times they do it better because they put more effort into it as they constantly have to prove themselves.

Prabhakar, 

" . . . the process of  seperating men and women itself shows a gender bias."

True. When I was a teenager, I thought in some years things were going to change. Now I think that's pretty unlikely as this hasn't changed in thousands of years. This planet won't survive enough time for human beings to mature enough to allow such change. The whole planet is still primitive.

I think I'm on board with the industry's party line now.

If I understand the entire message correctly,

1. Age discrimination is okay, because highly paid old people don't have the skills.

2. There's a skills shortage, so we need to increase the supply of lower-paid new graduates (rather than retrain present employees).

3. There aren't enough women in the business (who for some reason aren't attracted to the lower salaries for women), but for sure their salaries will go up once we convince more of them to graduate from expensive biz schools with a logistics specialization. And if their salaries don't go up from the influx of new graduates--don't worry!--they'll be forced to pay their student loans out of their social security benefits.

Got it!

My opinion is that, in any profession we should stop counting women and men differently, because the process of  seperating men and women itself shows a gender bias.
