women workers in NYC earning more than men

No Quick Riches for New York’s Twentysomethings (Gotham Gazette. June, 2007)

Some interesting points:
* comparing all 20somethings in NYC, in 2005 women earned more than men (117% of what men earned)
* comparing college educated workers in NYC, women earned less than men (89% of what men earned)
* way more women than men have college degress.
* across the US, women still earn less than men, college or not.

so more women are going to college, but it seems like in the highly educated positions women still aren't getting the same paychecks. I wonder if it's because they aren't attaining high positions or if paychecks for the same levels vary by gender.
