One response to “Uh-oh. Check out the clergy pay gap. It’s bad.

  1. Of the 46,510 employed clergy counted by the BLS in 2014, only 356 were employed by religious organizations having both male and female clergy. There’s a gap. I wonder how the weekly earnings data by gender would look if it factored in all clergy, regardless of whether religious organizations employed women as clergy.

    And there’s no breakdown under that group of 356 clergy on position…preacher…bishop…archbishop…which makes drawing specific conclusions on a pay gap a little difficult.

    Also…Grant needs to look at his calendar. It’s 2016. The data he’s citing is from 2014, published May 2015. Not this year. BLS data on this for 2015 won’t be published until May 2016.
