    The article states "women comprise almost 45 percent of the state's workforce, compared with similarly employed men, they earn about 70 cents on the dollar less" Am I misunderstanding this or is it really saying that women "earn about 70 cents on the dollar LESS" than that earned by men? Does that suggest that women earn 30 cents for every dollar me earn? One dollar less 70 cents equals 30 cents right?

    The meritocracy approach of taking talent first is great and as it should be. However, if your numbers don't don't jibe with what the feds say you should have in "diversity" measurements of color/sex/ethnicity/age you WILL get in trouble. I say this having long ago learned it the hard way. A turn-down of applicants in any of the "diversity" areas who is even reasonably qualified will likely result in a lawsuit - either by EEOC, other governmental entities, or the individual.
