5 Simple Ways Women Can Close the Gender Pay Gap – Equal Pay Day

Equal Pay Day recognizes how far into the current calendar year women must work to earn the same salary that men in equitable positions earned in the previous calendar year.

The US Census Bureau report shows that on average, men are paid 20% more than women. This 20% margin is called the ‘Gender Pay Gap.’ It’s calculated by dividing the median earnings of full-time, year-round, working women by the median earnings of full-time, year-round, working men.

There is debate as to whether the gap exists independently of skills or qualifications. However, the pattern indicates that even if a man and a woman have the exact same skill level, the man is be paid more for the exact same job. The gap exists across nearly all industries at varying rates.
