Not every one is unionized. In addition, not all unions ascribe to equal pay for
equal work, in fact, not all unions ascribe to having women or people of color
enter their ranks. One doesn't necessarily have men admitting that they are
being paid more. One need only ask each what their earning are, or retrieve the
data otherwise and compare the two.

It continues to amaze me that the culture is so casual in admitting this
differential. It seems there is still some sort of believe out there that
its "usual" and "we are making progress" so let history and time continue
closing the gap.
