daagh sir,
I have a doubt here in non-underlined portion of the sentence-
"Although women’s wages are improving, Department of Labor statistics show that the ratio of their earnings with that of men have been roughly static since 1960."

Here why the "department of labor statistics SHOW".... shouldn't it be SHOWS???

the subject is statistics and not Department of Labor.

Department of Labor is modifying statistics, which is the subject and plural.

Department of Labor statistics show = Statistics of Department of Labor show . Department of Labor in this case is modifier (to be precise adjective).

Statistics = data is plural, Statistics = science is singular
