      Although many countries have equal pay laws, there is a significant gender pay gap in the healthcare industry. According to a recent study, over a 40-year career, male doctors earn almost 2$ million more than female physicians.

      Are these statistics enough to present this case, or are they being misunderstood? Is there a need for more specific research on this subject? What do you think?

      It may pertain in other specialties and disciplines.
      Even when women work more, but this is unacceptable.

      There are probably some true differences, but specialty and sub-specialty differences and hours worked are also very strong factors.

      Yeah the gap maybe as a result of,Male physicians tend to work for hours compared to females thus the difference hypothetically.

      Is not the difference that is the issue but the factors skewing such differentials. What are the factors? Gender is a factor amongst over 15 factors. Address the entire pay gap conundrum beyond gender and debate becomes interesting. This gender angle is a binary argument that most liberals detest yet it is snicked in conveniently here.
