Do Women Earn Less Than Men?

Well, women get paid less than men. The "earn" thing is considerably more complicated.

KPC uper-pal Steve Horwitz, with a fresh coat of Rain-X on his pate, explains.

You gotta use the Rain-X or it gets all spotty up there! Thanks for the linky.

Yes, women get paid less than men.

They also get paid more than men.

It depends on how you measure it. Don't account for interrupted experience, women earn less. Count annual or lifetime earnings and women get paid less.

Compare apples to apples and women and men get paid about the same.
