We must close this gender gap

In signing the equal payday law or whatever it was, President Obama said of something, “It’s not fair” and “That’s not right,” something about women making 77 percent of what a man makes. Well, here is a statistic we must, must, do something about:

92% of work-related deaths in 2012 were to men.

Want to close the gap, girls, sharpen those axes and chain saws, or fill your tool belt with hammers and box cutters and tape measures, or get down to an Alaskan or Maine fishing dock and sign on. You’ll get paid more than in one of those office jobs, too.
