4. Every woman we've ever hired with kids is always calling requesting time off because of kid related

issues. She needs off early, or she's going to be late, or she can't come in at all some days. Another words it's hard to count on women with children. Most business owners know that and if they can't count on an employee they sure aren't going to promote them.

On the other hand, we've had a few single dad male employees who seem to be much better at hiring responsible nannies or sitters and delegating responsibilities to them, that enable us to be able to count on dad being at work.Therefor dad gets promoted.

Also two capable applicants for the same job, you suspect one has children, the other with the same qualifications has no children. As a business owner it's your responsibility to your other employees and your family to hire the one who will most benefit the entire team, not the one who others will have to pick up the slack for.

8. It is difficult

We can't ask if they have kids. We can't even ask if they ever plan on having kids. There are ways, however...

9. Yes, there are ways. I would never mention them here, but as you point out, dificult yes, but not

impossible. Sad our hands have been legally tied to ensure we're unable to hire the employee best suited to give us the best production. Which leads to us being more profitable and creating more jobs.

10. I'll say it

There is nothing that prevents them from volunteering that info, and you know as well as I what questions you can ask to get that info volunteered.

3. Sadly

some will see conspiracy instead of choices in much of the perceived inequities in the world.

Choosing to have children and then taking time off to raise those children will always have an impact on current and future career earnings. It's a conscious choice that many couples make when deciding to have children. One parent, which is most often the woman, decides to make the children a priority over career.

It doesn't mean there is a vast conspiracy to hold women down, it might simply mean that women tend to place raising and caring for a child above their earning potential.

But the current state of "it's better to be a victim" requires these sorts of analyses so the victims can state their claim to being oppressed. A million years of biology isn't so easily dismissed, despite the current desire to pretend otherwise.

6. True that. No conspiracy. Her body, her choice, her responsibility. 100 percent her responsibilty if

it's 100 percent her choice.

7. Any reasonable definition of "earnings" would include child support.

His earnings are garnished, hers are subsidized.
