As if we needed more evidence that the supposed wage-gap between men and women, here comes Uber to pile on a little more,
"Uber, which pays its drivers not on an inherently subjective individual basis but via a formula that takes into account time and mileage driven, still has a 7 percent pay gap between male and female drivers. That’s right: a company that allocates salary in a way that is necessarily blind to an employee’s sex has still generated a pay gap, because men and women make different choices.
"It turns out that female Uber drivers work shorter hours, are less likely to work during peak times, and drive more slowly. Because the compensation structure is automatic, Stanford researchers were able to pin down the three factors that caused the gap: experience on the platform, willingness to work at peak times and in busy areas, and driving speed preferences."
Shockingly, men tend to drive a bit faster.
As Jordan Peterson pointed out to a clueless Cathy Newman during one of the most one-sided debates of all time, you "never run a single-variate analysis." As I've shown before, including in my book on economic myths, when you control for all of the variables instead of doing an apples-to-oranges gross wage comparison, the supposed-wage gap all but disappears.
Maybe someday the gender warriors will take a break and this obvious economic fact will finally sink in.
