More from Betsey Stevenson on I Love Charts: Read her take on the wage gap between men and women, and how it’s changed since the 1970s.

ilovecharts:

Ok, let’s get back to wages.

The earnings gap between men and women still exists today, but since the 1970’s:

  1. Women’s hourly earnings have grown more quickly than men’s, following a similar trend to GDP growth.
  2. Growth in median family income has largely come from increases in women’s earnings, rather than from men’s earnings.
  3. Earnings for both married and single mothers increased by about 33%.
  4. Married mothers’ contributions to total family income increased from less than one-third to about 40%.

In other words, women are bringing home more of the bacon, but we still have more work to do to ensure equal pay for equal work.

Chaos already dominates enough of our lives. The universe is an endless, raging sea of randomness. Our job isn’t to fight it but to weather it together on the raft of life. A raft held together by those few, rare, beautiful things that we know to be predictable | GET TO KNOW ME MEME: COMMUNITY, REMEDIAL CHAOS THEORY [1/5 tv episodes]

My girlfriend is going to be an elementary school teacher. This is her handwriting.

This made me cry so hard because I haven’t seen the cursive alphabet in so long  they’ve stopped teaching it where I live
