Women get paid less then men for same work

According to Rachel Maddow, and studies conducted for her show, women get paid on average 77cents for every dollar that men make. This is an average of a wide field of jobs, including male dominated positions like being a Manager, security guard, driver, and janitor. It was found that men actually make more in female dominated positions as well, in areas such as waiting/waitressing, secretarial, clerical, teaching, and others. This is gender discrimination happening in the workplace. Luckily laws are only now being passed to combat this inequality, but even with them, a victim would have to know both his/her salary and that of someone performing the same tasks. Salary related information is rarely if ever distributes and thus the problem tends to go unhindered.
