What pay disparity between sexes?

Today is "pay equality day". That means, women are supposed to have had to work this much more than a year to make what men made last year. This works out to women making 83% of what men make. You'd think, if women were really doing the same jobs for 17% less, greedy business owners would fire all their men, hire women only, and cut their labor costs by that 17%. This would give them a 17% edge over the competition – until other greedy business owners caught on and started doing likewise.

But alas, Carrie L. Lukas at the Independent Women's Forum writes to tell us There Is No Male-Female Wage Gap

Darn! Big cost saving idea down the tubes.
