Lesser known Swedish gender gaps

Not even unions can stop women choosing work-life balance over equal earnings @women_nz @JulieAnneGenter

From https://scholar.harvard.edu/bolotnyy/publications/why-do-women-earn-less-men-evidence-bus-and-train-operators-job-market-paper HT Marginal Revolution

The paper itself cannot be downloaded but clearly suggest they are detailed evidence on the work choices down to people nominating to rosters and taking up their roster nomination as a bus or train driver. This paper is therefore the only rival the Uber paper that found a zero gender pay gap once work-life balance choices were accounted for by women.

Why does @women_nz @JulieAnneGenter treat men’s occupational choices as superior? Women choose more interactive occupations because of their vastly superior reading and verbal skills
