Daily Herald: Gender Pay Gap
May 19, 2013 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- Reports recently released by the American Association of University Women indicate a gender pay gap not only still exists in the American workforce, but often reveals itself the moment women accept their first job.
Women working full-time one year after college graduation are paid an average of 18 percent less than men also working full-time one year after receiving a bachelor's degree, according to "Graduating to a Pay Gap."
Some of the difference may be because many women pursue majors and enter careers that offer less pay. Some of it could be caused by varying levels of salary negotiation skills or other factors. But in many cases, the study suggest, part of the gap results from gender and gender alone.
