I bet Im throwing off the statistics here. I'm willing to undercut every other woman in a GIS job to get a job!

I just love how people say "Pay gap!" and then bash republicans for not supporting a bill to diminish the alleged 'pay gap' without even referencing what the pay gap even is or refers to. The article itself doesn't even reference what it means by pay gap. Absolutely pathetic.
The post was more to pointing out an inconvenient irony. Whereas democrats continue to assert these truths about the "middle class", the policies they sell for the most part do almost nothing to improve the situation of the people who actually comprise of the middle class.
At least not directly.

You're welcome to google the studies yourself (some of them are public, some aren't, so I really can't give you the ones I read which aren't), I'm only relaying what I learned from my studies on the subject several years ago (and no, things to not change that quickly over a few years).
Yes, across the board women make on average less than men, but in some jobs women are paid more, or pretty darn equally =/-5%, which makes the average pay gap different and lack meaning in comparison to the specific pay gaps in specific fields and professions.
I also don't understand why the jobs being female dominant somehow implies sexism more than male dominant jobs. Just because somebody said so?
