It’s #EqualPayDay, and you know what that means: even more uninformed whining than usual about women being paid less than men. The New York Post is evidently eager to contribute to the misinformation campaign — by suggesting that those who understand the truth are the ones who are misinformed:

The latest U.S. Census Bureau data shows that on average women make 81 cents to every dollar earned by a man. However, a new SurveyMonkey poll of 8,566 American adults found that 46 percent of male respondents believe that the pay gap “is made up to serve a political purpose.”
About two in 10 men go so far as to check the poll’s “fake news” box.
So what do women have to do to prove to men the gender pay gap is real — publicize their paychecks?
Women will have to do a lot more than that to prove to men that the gender pay gap is real. Namely, create a gender pay gap in the first place. Because there isn’t one.
BC it is

That's an odd way of spelling "know".

This is where you finish the sentence with "and they are correct."

They are correct.
The ones who don't think it's fake news are the one who are incorrect. https://t.co/qTgBxd4QzQ

No, it’s a conspiracy theory.
There is no conspiracy to pay women less. The Gender Pay Gap is utter nonsense. https://t.co/uLIjY3QiRU

And women — yes, even women! — know it.
Well-informed women think so too
