Why there is a gender pay gap in the medical field

According to a survey of female physicians conducted by Merritt Hawkins, 74% said that their male colleagues made more than they did. They believe this to be true even after accounting for the number of hours worked and a given medical professional's area of expertise. According to 76% of respondents, unconscious discrimination on the part of their employers is to blame. Of those who said that they earned less than their male colleagues, most said that they had a lower base salary.

Proposed FMLA reform would help married couples at same workplace

A bipartisan group of U.S. senators has brought forward a bill to end restrictions on family leave imposed on married couples who work for the same employer. The current provisions of the Family Medical Leave Act place limits on the time that married couples working at the same place can take off to care for a newborn, adopted child or ailing parent. If the reforms described in the Fair Access for Individuals to Receive Leave Act become law, married co-workers in New York and nationwide would have a right to each take 12 weeks off during a 12-month period.
