Leftover sent this, an Economic Policy Institute report I missed last week, that looks at the wage gap between men and women. The introduction gives you an idea of what this report found:
…when compared with men, women are still paid less, are more likely to hold low-wage jobs, and are more likely to live in poverty. Gender wage disparities are present at all wage levels and within education categories, occupations, and sectors—sometimes to a grave degree.
But look at the graphic above. No worker’s pay has kept up with productivity. Women feel that the most, but the men aren’t being paid fairly, either. Since 1979, workers’ pay has not been tied to the consistent rise in productivity. So the money is going…where?
