If corporations prefer hiring men because they want to hire people that are like them, why move jobs offshore?
Whenever someone asks why, if women are paid 77c to a man's dollar for the same work, corporations don't just decrease costs by hiring women, feminists retort that the people choosing who to hire want to hire people who are like them so they hire men. Why then have companies been moving jobs to countries populated by people of different races because they will work for less? Rovale, if that is the case they have no problem hiring women if they are going to work for less.

ALL corporations do what is in their best interest. They don't care about any workers, male or female. They don't care if their products are made by slave labor, child labor, etc. All they care about is profits.

Most of the jobs that get moved offshore ARE performed by women in those countries. This is true for manufacturing jobs, especially for clothing, electronics, and toys. If you can, watch footage from an assembly line at a factory in China. Nearly everybody on that line is a woman.

Companies hire people who can do the job and generate the greatest benefit-to-cost ratio; Why they still find it worthwhile to hire men over women even though (which is 100% substantiated of course) women are $.77/ man $1.00 should tell you all you need to know.

Companies that move their jobs to other countries are motivated by their profit margins. Why pay a man or a woman a decent wage in America when they can ship the job overseas where someone would work for $2 a day... More
