    Well, this attitude can be seen in many male posters here in this BB.

    Wait a second, I thought you believed that women need to be paid more, because they're making less than men. Now you're saying that it is men who are falling behind?

    I may be wrong, but I do not remember posting on salaries. I do believe in equal pay for equal work.

    Also I do believe that men need to adapt better to the changing world if they want to keep up. How about you?

    Have you read about how many the number of men graduating with university degrees is growing while the number of men earning degrees is decreasing?

    Might have something to do with the escalating costs of a college education in a dying corporate dominated service economy.

    Besides brains are better educated and cheaper over seas.

    The article is talking about men without even an eighth grade education. No big surprise that they would be struggling in the job market. Especially considering how terribly the economy has done for the last six years.

    But seriously, you think that "many male posters here in this BB" fit that description?

    That's a touchy subject, if we teach God's order as revealed in scripture, we get accused of being arrogant bigots. My wife didn't work outside the home, she was always there for me and my children, our Creator knows what He is doing, because He created us. :)

    Earlier this month I dropped $500 on a gaming system for my son’s birthday. Now I see that most games are rated “M”. Games were at one time for children. This is why men are not working….they are playing games. :(

    So crabby does not like the inerrant word of God and he does not like the role of men established by God.

    Off topic. The OP was not about Biblical relationship between men and women. Are you saying that women should be kept pregnant and at home or should they be educated and allowed to work to their ability?

    Also I am sure you cherry pick the passages you want to emphasis and ignore others.

    What do you mean by inerrant? Which version? The evil one has used the word inerrant greatly to his advantage.

    But I do believe you are ignorant enough to think you are right.

    The article in the OP isn't entirely wrong. It does miss the point that there are tons of unskilled and skilled labor jobs that do require men's durability. Go by any home building site and you'll find almost no women.

    That's okay, its part of our world.

    This said, it is important to note that one of the significant marks of the rising generations, including Millennials and even "Generation Z" is that women are graduating from college with qualified degrees at 33% higher rate than men. Women are also entering the workforce earlier and in white collar desk jobs.

    We're going to be coming to a generational shake out soon enough. The arguments for wage equality will become moot since women will be leading our workforces at the same rate as men.

    Too many Millennial boys (in their 20s) are not finishing college and are not entering the workforce at the same rates as before. Millennial women are.

    So there's that.

    It looks like young guys can marry a college graduate and stay home while she works....
