New College Grads Women Earn Less than Men

Think Progress reports disturbing news about college graduates and salary:  Men are making more than women – even if they graduate with the same major.  Overall, female new graduates are earning .82 to the dollar earned by their male classmates.  The studies cited in the article point to clear discrimination against women.  Feminists in the 1970s would say, “We’ve come a long way.”  While that is true in many ways, when it comes to paying women fairly, America has a long way to go.
