I wish the article would go into more detail as to WHY women make 24% less. It implies they just aren't as assertive, but based on the men and women I've worked with, I don't buy that (at least it doesn't explain that degree of difference in pay). Could it be the men on average have been around longer, or could it just be sexism? I think the article should have dug a little deeper, but if it helps people out, I support it. Everyone should be paid what they are worth... not less... not more.
