The Wage Gap: "The picture is more complicated than is often thought"

In another UK Telegraph article, someone else is questioning the wage gap between men and women. It is explained that the difference in average wages is mostly the result of men and women's choices, and says, "the picture is more complicated than is often thought. Single men earn less than married men, who are spurred to work harder by the responsibility of a family. The reverse is true for married women, who earn less than single women largely because they are more likely to work part-time...Only a part of the labour market advantage enjoyed by men can be attributed to discrimination in any sense that can be addressed by public policy."
