For every dollar a man made in 2003, women made 75.5 cents, the Census Bureau said in its annual report on income. That was down from the record 76.6 cents that women earned vs. men's $1 in 2002. The median income for men working full time in 2003 was $40,668, not significantly different from the prior year, while the median income for women working full time was $30,724, down 0.6% from 2002.<quoted text>
Not sure where you get your statistics and not trying to insult you. But your statement about male/female salaries is too simplistic. The reality is that women tend to earn less due to some simple factors such as the number of hours they tend to work and their willingness to commute long distances to work. Studies have shown that men often spend more hours in the office per day where women prefer to have more personal time for family or whatever. Also, men are more likely to move jobs and accept long commutes to take new jobs that pay more. Women that take on the same hours and willingness to relocate and /or commute have been proven to earn salaries equal to men.
I got my information from the Census Bureau, you?
