Women under 30 make more than men

Postby Godric on Thu Jan 02, 2014 6:53 pm

http://ideas.time.com/2014/01/02/men-are-obsolete/

Now in every part of America young single women under 30 have a higher median income than young men, which is really important because that’s the phase of life when people imagine what their future will look like. As one sorority girl put it to me — remember, I said sorority, not someone from the women’s study center — “Men are the new ball and chain.”

If you are representative of men under 30 today then this isn't surprising. :P

I say that and then see what my wife goes through on my days off. Not sure if I could do that 5 days a week with 3 kids (plus she babysits 2 others).

I know a lot of women that make just enough to pay for the child care required while they're at work

A friend of mine has a two year old and his wife is an attorney.
I know that she makes far more than he does and it seems odd that they pay a woman to spend all day with their son.....and it probably amounts to about 2/3 of his salary.

I guess the idea was that he was/is afraid of having to re-enter the job market.

My wife makes about 2.5x my salary. When she was in sales, there was no doubt that she deserved it because she was driving something like $5 million in sales (for one territory in Los Angeles do be doing that is impressive). When she was the new hire trainer for field sales, she was worth every penny of it. But last year she switched to marketing...... I'll just say the disparity is a bit more difficult to justify now than it once was. ;)

Of course, Mrs Tif is in her mid-40s, so it's not really a relevant comparison. Just wanted an opportunity to brag on her a bit. Actually, she is pretty awesome at everything she's ever done. Except cook. She can't cook. At all. So we make a pretty good couple.

My once and future ex (it's complicated) is responsible for about $98M - that's not a typo - in annual sales.
She was always pretty good at having me pick up the tab. Yoi....what a sucker I am.

This is actually the subject-matter I work on. My org studies the cost of child care and bluntly, its insane.

I have no problem with women making more than men. I'm sure if my wife made more than me, it might irk me in a little way, but not in a significant way to affect anything. I'd always be thrilled to see her excel at her job, even if it means she would make more than me.

As far as generally, it doesn't surprise me. I have a feeling the "bro" culture has something to do with it.

I think a lot a woman who work for little or no more than the cost of child support just don't want to be a stay at home mother.

This makes perfect sense to me.

Personally speaking, my wife and I make fairly similar salaries. I wouldn't have any trouble with her making more or less than me, nor would she. Our relationship, and our family, is a partnership through and through from what we bring home to what we do around the house, and the more one or the other of us makes, the better it is for that partnership. We would both be happy if one or the other of us made enough that the other could quit; but of course that happiness is made far more difficult to achieve when a percentage is being skimmed off the top, progressively.

My wife just got a new job and now is making significantly more than me (almost 20K more), but before that she was making a little less. As of now she won't have a significant increase in hours spent at the office and in the long run might have to work less hours since she used to work on the weekends for a couple hours about once a month. I could probably make more by getting a new job too, but I'd have to work significantly more hours and probably travel more than I do currently.

This is not surprising. Over the past decade or so, it has been well documented that women are matriculating to universities at a higher rate than their male counterparts. It only stands to reason that women will be paid more given their higher educational standing.

I started out making more money than my wife, but her company is far, far better than mine (and 1000000000000x more reputable). Everything about her job is better, actually. PTO, benefits, etc. The only reason I am with my current company is because of the full-time telecommuting.
