How Do Men Feel About Women Earning More

So, How Do Men Really Feel About Our Salaries?

In a recent poll of 66,000 men in the UK, 54 percent of them said their perfect woman wouldn't earn more than £25,000 a year. She would also have blue eyes and be of medium build, be good in bed, and have an optimistic outlook about life. The poll was run by, and their 66,000 poll takers must have been a completely different pool than the men surveyed by Elle and MSNBC. That survey found that only 12 percent of the men resented women who earned more. So, what are we to conclude from these mixed results? No matter how men feel about how much women earn, the average gender-pay gap worldwide is 16 percent, and here in the US women earn 22.4 percent less than men.
