Unequal Pay and Unequal Opportunities: New Data On the Gender Wage Gap
NOVEMBER 5, 2015
A new study by Payscale adds depth to the gender wage gap discussion. Forget the 78 cents on the dollar statistic; it’s 30 years out of date. They peg the current controlled wage gap at 2.7% and the uncontrolled wage gap at 25.6%. To arrive at the controlled wage gap, Payscale compared wages in identical jobs: HR Manager to HR Manager. They also controlled for education, experience, location, and hours worked.
