    "With" seems to be an error. I think it should be "...were far more likely to negotiate over wages than women."

    Sunyaer, I suspect it's one of those mistakes that occur when the writer changes something and forgets to fix it completely. Perhaps the original text was "far more likely to negotiate over wages with their boss than women". The writer might have decided that "with their boss" wasn't really needed and deleted "their boss" but neglected to take out "with."

    Sometimes (well, often :() people post or publish something and forget to look it over first to be sure it's correct.
