1. Through the good and bad, a dog will never leave their soldier’s side.
2. Bodza, an 11-year-old military dog, was put down last week due to health complications after a lifetime of serving his country. His handler, Kyle Smith of the U.S. Air Force was paired with Bodza in 2012 during a deployment in Kyrgyzstan and then adopted him after the canine’s retirement. “I’ve never cried that much my entire life,” he said. “I held him in my arms the entire time.”
Is there any truth to the claim that ‘Women are paid 30% less than men"?
For those international readers who will read this and then Google the rate of income inequality in the United States, know that the article you’ll find tattooed all over the search results (somewhere around 70% of a male’s earnings – 30% less than men who do the same job) is highly flawed. There is a wage gap in the United States that’s worth fighting to fix (I’ll offer suggestions later), but it’s significantly less than 30% – somewhere around 7%, on average.
The massively-spread study went viral a few years ago because of how shocking the results were. People condensed their complicated findings into a tweet-length summary and concluded that women and men in the United States get paid around 30% different rates for equal work. This has since been cited on posters, protest shirts, billboards, advertisements and everything else lately because the current US President doesn’t have a good track record with women (which is a valid observation but not the point of this post). This improper summary has led to the urban legend that women are grossly underpaid for work in the US compared to male counterparts.
The study effectively added up the annual wage of every man in every job with every level of experience in the United States and divided it by the number of male workers to come up with an annual wage for the average American male. That average American male is faceless, nameless, ageless and simultaneously skilled & unskilled. He has a doctorate but he also dropped out of high school. He’s healthy and strong but also paralyzed in a wheelchair. He comes from a wealthy family but also had poor parents.
Then they did the same thing for women.
