Continued Appeal & Asian Am. Salary III

Thanks to you, 80-20 needs only 45 more members, instead of the 72 of
4 day ago, and 173 = (23 + 150) of a week ago. We even got 4 more Life
Members and a $1,000 matching fund. Please be one of the 45, if you
are NOT a member yet!

Please empower 80-20. It needs your broad shoulders.

Please arm others and me with the news of the record high membership in
tough economic times, when we go to DOL. It's the kind of news that the political
establishment understands. We are going to the Labor Department for a
meeting. Hopefully, we'll succeed in removing the last major obstacle
to the growth of our community -- less opportunity in workplaces AND less
pay for equal work.

Here is an additional proof of inequity. Remember the Scientist's Salary

The reported average salaries for Asian Ph.Ds and MDs are the lowest
when compared with all other Americans. That of the Asian MS happens
to be the highest. That contradiction leads to a question of whether the
the data are reliable.

80-20 communicated with The Scientists. We found that the combined
sample sizes in the 3 categories of BS, MS and MD in the Asian survey is only a
puny 150 persons. That means that those 3 reported numbers are statistically
quite uncertain.

However, the sample size for Asian Ph.Ds is 480 which is statistically large
enough to say that Asian Ph.Ds in life sciences definitely have the lowest
average salary. Why are Asian Ams in the "lowest" categories so often,
in spite of having the highest educational attainment?

Wouldn't you like 80-20 to find out? Wouldn't you like to know if the low
salary phenomenon is limited to life science or extend to many other fields?

So, please EMPOWER 80-20 with the record high membership. Before I
, I like to help remove that last major obstacle for you & your
offspring. If you are NOT a members yet, I need YOUR help!
