^Good idea, M2! Hi! I'm single, childless, and went to tier 1 schools UG and MBA. I live in a major city. Can I have 25k extra? Oh, wait! I know for a fact the guys on my team make way more than I do! But your wife makes more than you do, OP, so I guess there's no wage gap here. Nothing to see! Keep moving along! Equality has been achieved bc OP's experience is the universal experience!

Okay OP, apples to apples. What do I say to my mentee who at her internship came across documentation that showed all female interns making on average $2 less than the male interns? All from the same top 20 public university with the same major. Honestly asking your thoughts are then?

Ok great thanks for the childless facts. Now take that and compare it to the percentage of women who are held back in their career to start a family vs those of men who do the same.

OP, does that data point look at the salaries of childless single women compared to childless single men? If it doesn't then you can't take away much from it.

In my case it's one data point but the subsequent points hold more broadly. Single childless women in the top 150 cities make 8% more than men according to research using American community survey (census) data

Adding children changes the comparison. The general statement that women make less than men is a pretty useless talking pt. Apples to apples women are doing better. Children add complexity including a skewed burden on women typically so we have to distinguish.

M2 have you heard of decreasing marginal returns? 7 degrees hurts you more than it helps you if you had to spend additional years out of the workforce. No wonder you're underpaid
