In the U.S.A.
"Can a company legally pay women less for the same equal work as men?" No, not at the same company. So this pretty much never happens. Of course, feminists will NEVER look for discrimination at the same company. They will always just use the department of Labour studies which only show the median income of ALL full-time females compared with ALL males. If and when feminists are pressed beyond that meaningless measure, then they are usually quick to bring up other studies about "doctors" or "engineer", but NEVER about anybody working AT THE SAME COMPANY. WHY? Because that is illegal according to the Equal Pay Act, and thus one will never find a pay gap. Simple. .
I'm sure it's possible to get away with it even though it's not legal, but the company would have to be run by retards who don't care about money because such a thing would be quite expensive, very expensive if they get sued, which they almost certainly would. The problem is that rich retards who don't care about making money and who want to throw money at people through court cases generally don't start a company and hire people only so that they can pay some people less than others. So even though it's possible in theory, it's incredibly stupid to assume that anyone would put in enough effort to get away with it.
Now let us say they did work the full 8 hours. 96×5×4= 1,920 dollars a month. 1,440.
No. Paying women less than men for the same work has been illegal since 1963 under the Equal Pay Act.
No. Not if she has the same qualifications, experience and demonstrated performance as her male counterpart. Besides, if this were so and was in practice, businesses would be hiring far more women than men. Why pay more if it was even possible to pay less for the same quality of work?
Simply... no. But say two cashiers are working the same job, and the man has been there for 5 years and the woman just started. The man could have gotten a few raises in his time, and would be getting paid more for the same work. Likewise, a woman working longer could be getting paid more for the same work.

No, it's illegal in the USA. In my country it has been illegal for decades as well. Feminists are lying when they say that women are paid less.
No. That's against the law.
