Payroll By Gender

In the USA, in 1970, 4% of women made as much or more money than their husbands. Today, 22% of wives out-earn their spouses. Still, even today, women make about 80 cents for every dollar a man makes. Payroll by Gender.

Sadly, some of the gains made by women as a group may be due to the many men who became unemployed in the last couple of years. The top family wage-earner is the one who still has a job.

Why men earn more? That's because when there's a disaster - like for instance a shipwreck - then it's always women and children first.

So let men earn 20% more for that... ;-)
