Recent Research Shows Gender Gap Still Exists

Recent Research Shows Gender Gap Still Exists

No matter how much discussion about equality in pay hits the centre stage, but, a recent report from Glassdoor Economic Research revealed that the gender pay gap still exists. It exists all over the world and much of it is unexplained.

The report released on Wednesday examined gender pay gap in the U. S, the U. K, Australia, France and Germany. The report on pay gaps is based on 500,000 or more salaries that were submitted to the website.

The researchers discovered that prior to and after adding certain statistical controls over certain factors, the average earning of men were more than the women in all the five nations.

According to the study, the unadjusted pay gap reveals that men in the United States earn 24.1 percent greater than what women do. In the United Kingdom the rate was a little less, at 22.9 percent, in Australia it was 17.3 percent, in Germany the gap was 22.5 percent, in France it was14.3 percent.

Glassdoor did not find any obvious explanation for the adjusted gap. The only reason cited was how men and women negotiate their salaries, bias on employer's part, or other differences which remain unexplained.
