        i bet where you come from women view staying home with babies like prison, sad for you and explains a lot about the moral decline of our society

The Texas economy is booming, but not for everyone. We know Texas is a national leader in creating minimum-wage jobs. Now new data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics shows that women's income on average in Texas—after increasing for several years—declined in 2012 compared to their male colleagues. Texas' working women made 79.6 cents for every dollar earned by men. Texas also lags in the number of women executives.
