One more reason for the wage gap: What young women choose to study in college
it's not just a matter of humanities vs. science, or education vs. business, either. In an e-mail, Arreola told me, "The same gap is often seen within engineering itself. Bioengineering has been growing to the point where we could see a 50/50 split of women and men majoring, and there have been some reports of salary staying flat or going down. Engineering fields where women are less than 20 percent pay more."

Job insecurity can cause physical and mental illness
Small and somwhat biased study, I feel - but it's an important thing to know. You might make society more efficient with less job safety, but you make the members less mentally stable/happy.
