Survey finds many men think wage gap isn't real

By Rebecca Hubbard Reporter/Anchor

While 62% of people acknowledge a pay gap between men and women for similar work, about half the men who responded to a new survey believe the wage disparity is made up. 
46% of men told SurveyMonkey they though the pay gap between genders is, "made up to serve a political purpose".
The company polled over 8,500 people and 24% of men between the ages of 18 and 34 called the difference in pay "fake news".
While the Census Bureau reports white women make about 81 cents to every dollar man earns, the AJC reports the gap widens when the woman is of color.
The Institute for Women's Policy and Research says in 2018 black and Hispanic women typically earned 61 and 53 cents on the dollar respectively.
