    Somebody at the Post didn't like it.

    This is the second woman who reports for WaPo to mention the pay gap in that newsroom. Does that actually exist, and if so how would a reporter know they are making less because they are a woman?

    Unions have access to newsroom pay data. The Post newsroom is unionized.

    OK, but how can we then determine that someone is paid less than a co-worker based solely on gender? I’m genuinely curious, because that’s not something to take lightly.

    I mean, factoring in varying levels of experience and job responsibilities, yearly reviews, one’s ability to negotiate more money, there are many factors that come into play when determining salaries. I can’t imagine it’s ever been as back and white as, “You’re a reporter and every reporter makes X.”

    Like writing an essay about the value of life in the blood dripping from the veins you just slit.
