    Are there any examples of Women not getting equal pay to men.

    Do Male Nurses get the same pay as female Nurses?
    Do Male Teachers get the same pay as female Teachers?
    Do Male Police Officers get the same pay as female Police Officers?
    Do Male Airline Pilots get the same pay as female Airline Pilots?

    Are there any examples of females not getting the same pay as Men?

    Or is it just more lieberal speak?

    I think it was the Levin show I was listening to the other day and he brought up this same issue... He claimed that female staffers for Pelosi make something like 25% less than their male counterparts...

    Eta: I am an airline pilot... All airlines I know of use a set pay scale based on years of seniority and position... For example let's say I work at xyz airlines, all year one first officers make 25/ flight hour plus per diem...

    It is a hard stat to quantify as many women stay home , have children , work part time vs men. All these seem to effect the stats. One way to look at it is college enrollment which if you believe ,that college grads make more is an indicator. http://chronicle.com/article/Mens-Share-of-College/65693/

    I know that in the industry I work in (oil/gas, pipeline/refinery) women make the same exact pay as their male counterparts.

    From laborer on up to inspector, pay is pay, gender doesn't have anything to do with it.
