Women Earn Even Less In Utah

I read this yahoo article online a couple of days ago.  It discusses the earning gap between men and women in the US.  Plus, it lists the worst place in the US for women to attempt to earn a "man's" wage: the Provo-Orem area of Utah.
Well, no surprises that the valley behind the Zion Curtain is still trying to pretend it's the 1950s, or, to be more correct, the fictional 1950s as portrayed on TV shows.  Actually, in a way it's almost surprising that the statistics weren't worse than this (a woman's salary there average 61% of a man's) -- at least some women have paying jobs.


  1. It's so sad, even after women now wear pants (allowed on the job and in school!) too, and still we usually, earn less. smiles!

  2. Ironically Karen, it was big news here when a group of women decided to stage a "Wear Pants to Church Day" to protest gender inequalities. Personally, I don't see why anyone who can do the job would get paid less than anyone else doing that job. But some people still think the man is the main breadwinner, and therefore deserves more. Bleah.
