This video from MSNBC talks about how the jobs being hit hardest by the economy are held predominantly by men, leaving many women as the sole breadwinners for their families. Of course, the sad part is that women are still only paid about 80 cents for every dollar that men make, so the wage gap is now hurting even more struggling families. Additionally, though many women are working full-time to make ends meet, many of them are still performing the same amount of housework as before. Men are failing to step up and help around the house, so the women are shouldering work inside the home, and outside.
