Just as I suspected

Finally, an objective commentary on the amount of money women make vs men.

(Link to article)

It's worthy of noting that the general media does not make a fair comparison of men vs women. If you compare unmarried men to unmarried women who share the same job titles and responsibilities, then women actually make more on average. But who's going to report that? Nobody! It would be like putting something positive and uplifting on the evening NEWS. Just doesn't happen. Pitty.

It is really a shame that movements (e.g. civil rights, women's rights, etc.) don't know when to stop. They always want more, to their own detriment I might add. Time to get over it and move on.

From the article: "Farrell bluntly advises women to put the victimization rhetoric on hold and just do what it takes to get the high-paying jobs. Good idea."

I think this is a good lesson for all of us regardless of whether we are male or female, black or white, tall or short, rich or poor, Irish or English, etc. etc. Anytime one demographic focuses too much on redresses for victimization they stagnate their own progress. Instead of spending their time to overcome their obstacles they complain about the injustice.

Interestingly enough... many large companies (the one I work for included) these days hire you at a "pay level," so regardless of your gender you are likely to make the same amount of money. Salary is based on position and "pay grade." Many companies try to be blind to gender in this fashion.
