Men’s movement guru Warren Farrell teaches you how to get more money, and says men earn more because women prioritize family over career. They work shorter hours, take more parental leave, and are less productive, trained and committed. If you’re a male who has prioritized hearth and home, you may have made some similar choices. Farrell also outlines some factors – danger, discomfort, heavy lifting – that increase the pay for some jobs. His data about salary-based job search is practical, but if you see the world through egalitarian or feminist lenses, you may find yourself a little testy.
