Sexist men earn more
Sexism at work equals bigger pay packet
It’s not the news we wanted to hear, but according to a new study men who are sexist at work earn more money.
Themacho male– sadly, there’s one in every office – apparently earns what amounts to over £4,500 a year more than their male colleagues who hold a more modern view, say scientists.
A Florida study of human attitudes quizzed over 12,000 men and women between 1979 and 2005 about their views on male and female roles.
The group were asked questions about whether a woman’s place was in the home, if employing women led to more juvenile delinquency, and whether the woman should stay at home to look after the home and family.
Once scientists had excluded outside factors including education, the complexity of a job and the number of hours a person works, scientists discovered that chauvinist men earned on average £4,600 a year more than men who saw women as equal in the workplace.
The findings, published in the Journal of Applied Pschychology, also revealed that there was only a minor disparity between the wages of like-minded men and women who held more balanced views, but that the wages ofsexist menoutdid everyone else.
Lead researcher Timothy Judge concluded: ‘These results cannot be explained by the fact that, in traditional couples, women are less likely to work outside the home.
