The wage gap two-step

"Plastered all over the newspapers today is the revelation that college educated minority women make marginally more than their White female counterparts... The stories feature a shoddy theory: being a minority and a woman is a 'great commodity' to employers, and may therefore be worth, oh, four thousand dollars more than a White woman," writes PFH, "But you're not worth $25K more. Which is how much more a candidate would get if she were a White guy. But that's not featured in the story. The news is more interested in a battle over crumbs." (Pinko Feminist Hellcat)
