Interesting site you've found Ted.

I couldn't help but notice that when you look at the average salaries of
men with bachelor's degrees ONLY their median weekly salary is $852 or
$44304 per year while women with the same qualifications earn $640 a
week or $33220 annually. An even larger discrepancy exists between men
and women with advanced degrees (about $13,500 per year). I wonder if
the fact that so many women professionals are in education related
fields has skewed these statistics.
In other words, I wonder what the average income of college graduates
would be if all educators were taken out.
