Gender Pay Gap

Here is an interesting post on the difference in gender pay (HT: Tyler Cowen).  Apparently, the pay gap reverses in part time jobs.

Another interesting item in the data posted there is that the full time jobs which seem to have the widest gaps in gender pay are the jobs that are generally paid through commissions.  If employer discrimination were to blame, I would expect the gap to be reduced in commission-based jobs.
