For every dollar a man makes!
I was just curious on how much a man makes and came across some statistics comparing income based on gender. For every dollar a man makes a woman makes 77cents. I find this to be absurd!!! This being said, it is even if they hokld the same degree and have the same experience. They earn more based solely on the fact that they hold the title, "MAN". Not only that but if you are not 'white' maenign black or spanish that 77 cents drops down even more. 61 cents if you are a black female and 52 cents if you are a spanish woman. I am speechless whenit comes to this. When is this society going to realize a female can do the same work as a male.
