Not Sexist, Just Mathematically Adept

About the much pummeled earnings gap which was attributed to rampant sexism in the workforce:

The Labor Department defines full-time as 35 hours a week or more, and the “or more” is far more likely to refer to male workers than to female ones. According to the department, almost 55% of workers logging more than 35 hours a week are men. In 2007, 25% of men working full-time jobs had workweeks of 41 or more hours, compared with 14% of female full-time workers. In other words, the famous gender-wage gap is to a considerable degree a gender-hours gap.

Fancy that. Of course, one shouldn’t let actual numbers get in the way of a righteous narrative of oppression and denigration.

That would be positively medieval.
