Chelsea was right. November is just four months away, and Donald Trump hasn’t talked about the gender pay gap. He hasn’t mentioned ways to boost working moms. He hasn’t laid out policy plans on child care or maternity leave. (The Boston Globe called him out for paying male campaign staffers more.)

Earlier this year, Cornell University economists Francine Blau and Lawrence Kahn took a swing at explaining what the numbers actually mean. They found canada goose outlet sale career decisions occupation, industry, taking time off or scaling back after children accounted for roughly half the gap.

Addressing the wage gap, wherever it comes from, doesn’t have to be liberal only issue, conservative thinkers say.

Also, clear the way for businesses to allow remote work. Managers could also build a work culture where telecommuting is acceptable, helping parents better juggle work and home.
