Pay gap ranking only part of story

While this narrative is insufficient to account for everyone’s situation (more than 30 women have brought lawsuits against their employers for pay discrimination since President Obama signed the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act in 2009), it does highlight a problem that is both societal and financial, and one that neither Janitz’s nor Obama’s solutions can truly address. 

As long as women are forced to choose between their infant and their career, we will continue to have a wage gap in this country. And as nice as it is to see that the gap in Oneonta is relatively small, it’s no reason to think there isn’t room for improvement.
