    If anything actually comes from "Equal Pay Day" other than a political debate, then that's great. I liked that this video had some balance. It pointed out the hypocrisy; for instance, they noted that women in the White House are presently paid less than men. If "equal pay day" turns out to be only symbolic and shines only as a political wedge issue, we can always fall back on prayer, which seems to be proving much more effective and efficient than government.

    While many seem to mock the fact that women at the white house make an average of 88% of what men make and try to point that as a failure, they seem to miss that pay difference used to be a lot worse - 88% is better than it used to be. Yes, there is still room for improvement, but I bet the average pay difference in the 'real' world is more than 12%. Additionally, the means of measurement may also need improving. For example, is there a reason for the 88% gap. It may be that women are not interested in some of the higher paid positions. For example, at a hospital I would imagine there are more male doctors and more female nurses so average pay of men verses women would be very different - but the real question is are they paid the same for the same job - in other words, female doctors paid the same as male doctors. We need to make sure we are comparing apples to apples not oranges, And examenining other important factors - like is there equal chance of advancement. That being said, my concern is that the government may be adding more legislation and paperwork to businesses so they can compile data (ie: pay statistics). Not that I have a problem with working with the government, but they keep adding more paperwork to businesses - I feel I am spending more time each year working for them and should bill them accordingly.
