Gender Discrimination: Statistics Show Ongoing Pay Disparity

| Jul 2, 2012 | Practice Areas |

By Brian Spitz, gender discrimination attorney, Cleveland, Ohio.

Here are some great facts about gender discrimination that I pulled from a recent Forbes article that relied on data from collected by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics:

 

  • 97 percent of the chief executives running the country’s largest companies are men.
  • “On average, women earn about 80% as much as men. In some jobs, they earn just over half as much as male peers, stunting their lifetime earnings by millions.”
  • Women in the position of personal finance advisors earn a median of $962 per week, compared to men’s median of $1,647, which amounts to 58 percent. Over a 35-year career, this discrepancy amounts to $1.25 million in lost earnings.
  • Women, who comprise 42 percent of retail employees, earn only 65 cents for every dollar earned by male retail employees.

Employees that feel that they are being discriminated or paid less based on their race, gender, age or national origin should track and document the differential treatment and adverse actions should call the right attorney today at (216) 291-4744 for a FREE initial consultation.
