If the woman lives in New York or Dallas or another big city, she earns more. Men on the other hand are going backwards:
Though Dr. Beveridge’s analysis showed women making strides, it also showed that men were in some ways moving backward. Among all men — including those with college degrees — real wages, adjusted for inflation, have declined since 1970. And among full-time workers with advanced degrees, wages for men increased only marginally even as they soared for women. Nationally, men’s wages in general declined while women’s remained the same.Is reverse-discrimination at play or are the women just doing as this woman suggests:
“It seems that women tend to take less time off between college and law school, and therefore become more senior, and, hence, make more money, at a younger age,” she said. “I would, of course, like to think that means that women know what they want sooner than men. But it probably has more to do with the unfortunate fact that women need to keep in mind biological time constraints and feel a great deal of pressure to build an entire career before refocusing on marriage and children.”Women who want to marry a peer are in big trouble. Only men seem to like "trophies" for a spouse. Women who work hard want a partner and to hire out the menial work like raising children. Maybe that's changing, too.
