Equal Pay Day Still Has A Long Way To Go Baby

Earlier this week it was Equal Pay Day. We need the day because we aren’t there yet. The Census Bureau estimates that the average earnings ratio between a man and a woman is that women make 77 cents for every dollar men do. That stat, however, is not an average of each industry, but a composition overall. According to the fact checking website Politifact, female computer programmers make 95 cents for every dollar their male counterparts make; female lawyers, on average, make 78 cents on the dollar and female financial advisers are estimated to make just 58 cents on the dollar.

But there’s more.  She worked just as hard all day, made less money and then according to the bureau of Labor statistics, she out worked hubby at home.

A detailed look at how Americans spend their days, recently released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, finds:

• More than half of women said they had done housework in the last 24 hours, compared with about one in five men.

• Women still are more likely to make the meals and do the cleanup — 66% vs. 37%.

• Of those with children, women spent twice as much time as men caring for the kids.

So let’s hear it for the ladies. Like the song says, is she’s a W-O-M-A-N , then she can do it all!
