Default Men get 1$ an hour more than women

Do athletes count in considering pay of men? if so then i think the balance is shifted the wrong way.

Yes but they only represent maybe 1500 (counting the 4 major sports) out of probably a 150 million workforce in the nation, so it probably doesn't do much to move that average.

This is certainly an improvement over what things were like only 20-30 years ago.

That's only because men choose higher paying jobs like Law, Engineering, Comp Sci. in college while women tend to choose jobs like Teaching, Psychology and Art. These surveys are skewed because of this and when you take a look at how much women make compared to guys in thier actual fields women make more then men.. So in reality men make less then women comparatively.

Anytime you see a poll you know odds are that it is bull****

I can speak for my area in Pennsylvania for middle class family's and the men make more then the women. Not a lot more, but still more. What you generally see is the man of the family works in manual labor at a factory while the wife may stay at home or work at a bank, or as a secretary. Just a example.
