2 months agoIf gender and racial paygap would exist and I could hire black women for 40% of cost of hiring white men then I would only employ black women. This clearly isn't the case because this paygap is a myth and it doesn't exist. To be fair it exists but it's very, very small and it exists not because of gender itself or race itself but multiple other factors.
