I GET SO PUMPED READING GOOD FANFICTION LIKE THIS IS WHAT I AM ALIVE FOR
Betsey Stevenson just signed off as today’s Chartist in Residence for I Love Charts. Be sure to check out all of her posts on the gender pay gap and how we fix it. Thanks for following along!
Here’s the bottom line: We’re making progress, but the gender pay gap still exists at all income levels, and widens as people get older.
Highly-educated women with professional degrees tend to begin their careers at approximately the same salary level as their male counterparts, but as their careers progress, a gender gap opens up. By their late 30’s, men with professional degrees earn 50% more than their female counterparts.
So how do we fix that? Beginning with the first bill he signed into law, President Obama’s been fighting to help women receive the pay they deserve. But he can’t do it all by himself. Congress needs to act to help ensure equal pay for women.
That’s all for today! I hope you enjoyed our charts. I had a blast. —Betsey
I feel like the Mormons should work at Monsters Inc. but instead of scaring people they just try to convert them.
I just showed this to my Mormon friend who’s about to leave on her mission and she’s crying from laughing so hard.
Today is the day Marty McFly goes to the future!
If you liked the movie (how could you not?) you should read this. Then you should go dig into T-Bone Burnett’s resume. Quite impressive.
After that, when the work’s all done, go find the nearest bottle of corn liquor and listen to the soundtrack. It just doesn’t get any better than old-timey American roots music.
