    Yes, I was surprised to read "77 percent less than". The study actually says

    "But in 2009—the most recent year for which data are available—women one year out of college who were working full time earned, on average, just 82 percent of what their male peers earned."

    There's a big difference between "77 percent less than" and "77 percent of."
