"Based on what I see in School, It is Amazing Men Work at All"
Years ago I was asked if I noticed gender difference in the classroom and I repied something like the title. Boys are always more disruptive and much harder to keep on task. From what I have seen in the classroom, it has amazed me that the financial inequity in the world has been towards women. I spewed something to that effect out as well.
Well, it appears what I observe in the classroom is catching up to men in the workforce, at least in Canada. In Canada women now outnumber men in the workforce. Here's a quote from this story on this changing trend in employment:"
It seems that just as women have more aptitude for certain jobs than men, they also have more aptitude for schooling – especially the long years of schooling you've got to put in to finish university.

They’re more motivated and they work harder in high school. “Fewer males had aspirations for university education than females and this fact might account for the lower levels of effort among them,” he wrote. “However, it is also true that males were not able to produce high school averages (and, therefore, the entry requirement for university) as efficiently as females.”
