Pay Equity Awareness Day

So 4/20 has been proclaimed by Gov. Bill Richardson to be a day on which we ponder “gender, ethnic and racial pay equity.” He signed an executive order at the end of 2009 demanding state agencies report on salary gaps and correct them.

According to the New Mexico Commission on the Status of Women, the state is ranked dead last in the nation for impoverished women with 20 percent of the New Mexico’s female population living in poverty. The commission also broke down average pay by race. The numbers are illuminating:

White

Women $29,500

Men $42,000

African American

Women $24,300

Men $32,400

Asian American

Women $33,100

Men $39,800

Native American

Women $23,200

Men $26,500

Other/Two or More Races

Women $27,600

Men $33,100

And if you like that article by Rose, you may also enjoy her first piece about Amanda Simpson, Obama’s transgender appointee to the Department of Commerce.

Pinup girls. Albuquerque’s got more than a few. Which always sparks the question: What about pinup dudes?

What about ‘em? Enjoy photographer Chad States’ series “Men at Their Most Masculine.” Alert: Wang ensues. I don’t know if these guys are pinups, exactly, but it’s akin to what I imagine a “Brawn of the 505” calendar would look like.
