Gender Discrimination: Statistics Show Ongoing Pay Disparity

On Behalf of | Jul 2, 2012 | Gender Discrimination |

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.
