Even the census proves income disparity!

It is said by the Republicans that good ol' "pull yourself up by your bootstraps" mentality will ensure if you work hard, you will prosper!

Anybody who says that this isn't entirely true, that there may be cases where there are income disparities is dismissed as being a commie/pinko/liberal crybaby.

Liberal Crybaby!

However, the census has proven the income disparities between men and women.

The article states:

Nationally, the median income for a woman working full-time, year-round was about $28,000, compared with $38,000 for a man. That means a woman earned less than 74 cents for every dollar earned by a man.

But I'm sure that Republicans will just say "These women need to stop being such prissies and pull themselves up by their brastraps!" "Work hard and prosper!" "Work hard and prosper!"

What about the historic income disparities between blacks and whites? What does the census say? Dont go there!

Work hard and prosper, indeed.

    The census only proves what incomes were, not what jobs are held.

    More men than women take technical jobs, like engineers, pilots, doctors, while many women prefer more people oriented jobs which of course pay less.

    Try researching incomes by job class and not sex.

    Many women make as much as men in the same fields with the same experience.
