  • Fifty Years Later Pay Disparities Still Exist

    The Simple Truth – 2014 AAUW Report
    The Equal Pay Act of 1963 was passed fifty years ago. However, a gap in pay continues to exist between men and women. Utilizing statistics from the Bureau of Labor Statistics and the Census Bureau, the American Association of University Women (AAUW) recently published its 2014 report, “The Simple Truth about the Gender Pay Gap.” This report demonstrates that there hasn’t been a change in the pay disparity between men and women in the last ten years. Women continue to be paid 23 percent less than men and this disparity is even larger for women of color – up to 47 percent larger! The disparity isn’t confined to specific states or regions of America and it is prevalent in just about every occupation. While a college education traditionally contributes to higher wages, it doesn’t appear to have an impact on the gap in pay between genders. In fact, the higher the level of education, the larger the gap in pay is. For more information and to learn about possible solutions, see: http://www.aauw.org/files/2014/03/The-Simple-Truth.pdf
