Gap? What gap?

The Scotsman has an article reporting on the earning discrepancies between male and female graduates. It seems bizarre that in 2006 different genders could still be on different salaries. That said I’d be bloody happy to be on the ‘lower’ average earnings; in fact I’d be happy to be close to that so-called lower average for graduates. Much as I dislike the idea of unscrupulous employers paying women differently from men I think the pay gap between what a lot of us earn compared to the averages quoted in the press is more important.
