The Day Women Catch Up

Writing in Daily Kos, Laura Clawson reports on Equal Pay Day, the date on which the average woman’s pay catches up to the average man’s pay from 2013. As some like to point out, many women work in lower paying jobs. However, many women performing the same jobs as men are paid less. As Clawson asks, why are women stuck in these jobs? This discrimination is one more example of why and how our economy has stalled. Job numbers are important. Wages and wage disparity is a much more significant problem, especially in an economy that depends on consumer spending.
