Analysis of the Earnings Gap Between Women and Men
Heidi Hartmann discussed the findings of a report, The Gender Wage Gap: 2013; Differences by Race and Ethnicity, No Growth in Real Wages for Women, published that month by the Institute for Women’s Policy Research analyzing the earnings gap between women and men. The report found that the gap had not narrowed significantly in recent years and if the present trends continued, the gap would not close until 2058. In 2012, women still earned 76.5 cents to the dollar overall of what men earned. A video clip was shown of President Obama speaking in Florida about women’s pay March 20, 2014. close
