Data Driven Results To Close The Pay Gap

 

Today is Equal Pay Day. It falls on this day to mark the additional time from the end of the financial year it takes for a woman to earn the same as her male colleagues. That’s 65-days of full-time work and a pay gap of 23.1% for total pay of full-time employees and 17.7% for base pay of full-time employees. 

For the average wages, a pay gap of 15.3% exists, which means that on average, men working full-time earned $1,638.30 and women earned $1,387.10, a difference of $251.20 per week. Between May 2016 and May 2017, women’s weekly earnings grew by 2.6%, while men’s weekly earnings grew by 1.5%.
