Tuesday Night Links: Equal Pay Day

Today is Equal Pay Day, another politically-correct, contrived day designed to focus attention on an issue promoted by the progressives in our midst.  Well, here are some links intended to bring you up to speed on the gender wage gap issue.

First, scholars Mark Perry and Andrew Biggs show that once you account for all relevant variables, the gender wage gap basically disappears.

Second,  Ashe Schow, at the Washington Examiner, reports that an Obama spokesperson had to admit that they misled media folks when talking about the wage gap.

Third, CNN (believe it or not!) takes the White House to task for its hypocrisy on this issue.
