The wage gap is alive and well  

Upsetting statistic of the day: in 2007, female college graduates made on average $2.92 less than male college graduates. Anytime an ignorant fool tries to tell you that "women and men are equal," throw that fact at them. There is no way that women and men can ever be remotely equal if there is such a significant wage gap. As long as men are earning more, women will have to depend on them, and that's not good.

I posted a little while ago about the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act. It stalled in the Senate because of a Republican filibuster, but Democrats have vowed to bring the measure up again. You can e-mail your Democrat senators and urge them to do so.

What next?
