I just heard a stat on the news, I’d been wondering how long it would take to go mainstream, that 79% of the jobs created over the last couple if years went to men.
A year or so from now (or possibly sooner) feminist groups will use this information to claim that life is unfairly slanted against women.
Most women will likely buy this and be angry. How unfair America is, they’ll claim.
There’s only one problem – the 2008 recession adversely affected men at an even higher ratio: 80/20. That means, ladies, that 8 men lost their job for every 2 women. What the stats really say is that women are outpacing men in this recovery by a percentage point. So you’re going to hear a positive stat used negatively – as if women were getting trampled on.
So the ship is righting itself, as they say – and people will use that politically to claim, yet again, that life ain’t fair.
My heart is breaking. Oh woe is me. Yea though I walk through the valley…
Now you know the whole story, not just the half that’s used to make you mad. You can’t make this stuff up folks.
