In 2011 there were 4,609 fatal injuries in the workplace.

4,234 of these victims - or 92 percent - were men.

Where are the voices for equality when it comes to workplace fatalities?

Then again, dying at work is nothing compared to being oppressed by the glass ceiling!

One of the reasons men make more than women on average is men are more likely to be in more hazardous and grueling occupations.

Likely because jobs where death and injury happen are most likely to be male dominated.


Or.... Women are too smart to do the stupid a$$ stuff that men do that would lead to injury/death.

Judging by the slutty attire that girl was wearing, it's no wonder why she's having difficulty finding a job.

Of course, I know a few women who have advanced due to said attire. Of course, you won't hear a complaint about that though.

Women experience 100% of unintended pregnancies. So it's a wash.

Experiencing a pregnancy is just as bad as dying on the job?

How many women with unintended pregnancies die as a result?

Do women who never have children still make significantly less than men? If so, that is obviously not right. But if women have a few kids and take time off each time, that is going to put them somewhat behind male peers who never took time off. In those cases, wage disparities make some sense.

Single, childless women earn 8 percent more than their male peers, and up to 20 percent more in some cities.
