Infantine's colleagues' protested almost immediately, to which he responded that he pulled all of his information from the Bureau of Labor and Statistics.

"This is not me," he said before continuing to explain why women make less.

"Men work on average more than six hours a week longer than women do," he said, adding that even among business owners, women earn less. "Women make half of what men do because of flexibility of work, men are more motivated by money than women are."

At the end of his speech, Infantine defended himself one last time.

"Guys, I'm not making this stuff up," he said. "My apologies if I have some people upset."
