Damage theorycrafting: Why is this an upgrade

As the title states, I want to know why Equipping the shield in the following screen shot would be considered an upgrade?

What's your other weapon?
When dual wielding, both weapons have to have close stats or a equipping a weaker weapon might actually make your dps lower.

This isn't actually my Monk, it's an employee. I actually have only ever used 2H's which is why I didn't have the answer. So there's actually a drawback to DW?

It's worth noting that I went from 1-60 with 2H to further reinforce my ignorance on DW

Dual wield is average DPS of the two weapons +15% right?

It is an upgrade because your offhand weapon is MUCH worse than your main weapon, meaning its better to just use your main weapon.
