 This is Scientific American's 60-Second Science. I'm Karen Hopkin. This will just take a minute.

 

So I’m having dinner with my two-year-old son. When he clears his plate, he says to me, “Get in the kitchen. I want more.” Get in the kitchen, I want more? I should have been appalled1. But I’d just read a study published in the September issue of the Journal of Applied2 Psychology3. In it, scientists from the University of Florida showed that men who hold a more traditional view of women in the workplace earn more than those who don’t.

The scientists asked more than 10,000 men and women what they think about “a woman’s place” at work and at home. And they compared the participants’ earnings4. Turns out that men who, like my toddler, feel that a woman’s place is in the kitchen made an average of $8,500 more a year than those who believe in equal pay for equal work. And women who believe in traditional gender5 roles make $1,500 less than their liberated6 sisters.

For old fashioned gals7, the smaller checks may be a self-fulfilling prophecy. As for the guys, maybe men whose wives stay at home can afford to be more aggressive in their pursuit of high-paying jobs. Either way, I hope my son keeps up the good work. Because he’s gonna be supporting me when I retire.

 

Thanks for the minute for Scientific American's 60-Second Science. I'm Karen Hopkin.
