Yikes, the gender gap is worse than I thought!

For some reason I had firmly in my head that women generally earned 80 cents for each dollar that a man earned in a comparable job. That ignores the wage changes that come as a job begins to be considered more suitable for one gender than another. These days, a key field that’s seems to have become more female are medical doctors and veterinarians while nurses are more often male than they used to be. Bet someone is preparing a study.

Read this and weep if your household is in any way dependent upon the earnings of a woman.
