“Sexist Men Make More Money”

Well, not exactly. Technically, it’s men with “traditional gender attitudes” make more money. That makes me wonder if men with those attitudes demand more money because their wives don’t work. Or, is it that employers are sexist and pay men with wives at home more because they know the family has one income?

True story: My brother’s boss gave him a raise immediately when he found out that they were pregnant with their first kid and said, “Well, you need to take care of your family now.”

Do men who bear the sole financial responsibility to support the family ask for more money?
