Should She Do Half the Work?

It’s documented that women make less than men despite decades of protests.  Now we learn that the first female CEO of General Motors, Mary Bara, will only earn 48% of what her predecessor, Dan Akerson, was paid.  In fact, according to a report on Huffington Post, Akerson will still be paid more than Bara in his current role as a consultant to the firm.  Last week I read a report on minimum wage that broke out findings by gender.  More than 60% of people earning the minimum wage were women.  Either we need to figure out some way to achieve gender equity in wages – or women should start doing less work.
