It's 2014. Which means that men and women are becoming more and more equal in terms of earning power in the workplace. Men still reign supreme in most places, but there are a few cities. where that is starting to change.
The Census Bureau reveals there are a number of American cities where women out-earn men. And by "a number of cities" they mean 16 cities. Each with a population of 150,000 or less.
No one can really explain why this is happening in these specific cities. But look who made the list?! BRIDGEPORT!
One possible reason is that men in these particular cities are underemployed or may have stopped looking for work altogether.
