Pffffft...I could pick this apart one point at a time or as a whole.
For the most part the presentation blames the victims. Sort of typical.

Men are more likely to work longer hours...yeah, because their wives handle all the child rearing stuff and need time to do the family things men aren't willing to do.

Fields that are predominated by women pay less...because they can get away with paying women less in the fields where they predominate. If more men took an interest in these vital positions wages would rise...for the men.

Men work at more dangerous jobs...because men are stupid.

Near as I can tell the whole argument is full of holes.

It has everything to do with him. He is the founder of Prager University. Which is a "University" in roughly the same sense as Trump University.
