Yeah, actually I do. It is relevant, or at least it is in the USA.

This is a list of earnings that men made broken down by occupation done by the US Census Bureau.

They also did this for women.

We'll just take a look at the first statistic here, but you can go ahead and take a look at all other computer/math related fields. You will notice that in all branches, women made less than men. Sometimes by as much as $30,000 a year (poor Actuaries!)

Male Computer Scientists and System Analysts made an average of $56,955 in a year. Women on the other hand made $47,797, which is almost $10,000 less. As you can see we do make less. "As long as you get payed less, for doing less work, I don't see a problem, either." I think you and I have reached an agreement. My flexible 8 hour day of 4 hours at home and 4 hours at work does seem like a fair deal suddenly, doesn't it.

Many people are unenthusiastic about their work.

Working...
