Remember when I got all huffy with that guy about equal pay?

First the binders thing got me all riled up. Then the equal pay and contraception thing got me all riled up. All of this riled-up-ed-ness earned me an email from an outfit called Learn Stuff. They've put together a kickass infographic on the earnings gap between men and women, and I thought I'd show you guys.

See? I'm not just making stuff up! 

The economy will IMPROVE if women get paid equally. Poverty rates will go down! Less people on the public dole! The amount of money you get paid for your job should not depend on your lady parts or lack thereof! Why is this a thing we're still discussing in 2012?!

ARRGH! I'm getting all riled up again!
