Commuting times need to be incorporated into calculations of the gender wage gap because they do represent a serious fixed cost of working that is higher for men than for women.

Not only is the commuting time for female workers less, there is much less variation across the OECD member countries than for men.

The figures for New Zealand are so low that they are suspicious.

  1. Women take jobs like a hobby. They are not held to any standard. If they lose the job it is no big deal. And they think they are being treated unfairly???

    Also, there is the 10 fold increase in jobsite death and dismemberment gap.
