Video - Why Men Earn More than Women

There is a hot debate taking place all across the country from living rooms, to water coolers and all the way up to the White House. The salary disparity between men and women. We need to put political rhetoric aside for a moment in order to get to the heart of this issue. Otherwise, we be having the same debate 30 years from now. In this video post I explain why men earn more than women, which has very little to do with discrimination . Check out the video. You might be surprised by my conclusions.

In their groundbreaking book "Women Don't Ask," authors Linda Babcock and Sara Laschever get to the heart of this problem by surveying hundreds of women. For perspectives from two other female observers check out this post from the Huffington Post and this one from Forbes. 

You may or may not agree with my conclusions. Either way, let me know your thoughts by commenting below. I do not pretend to know all of the answers. I am a student of life and welcome teachers all all stripes and points of view.

Godspeed and I look forward to seeing you in the Players Lounge.
